Maybe you rank higher than Bob Vila because you have a more complete Google+ page.Author rank is a myth as of now. Virente has a hypothetical gauge tool that traphagan built before he went to stone consulting. I rank higher than Bob vila so I'm thinking it's not right yet...
Yes, I hear you . I meant they have become much more selective . 15% is what I heard Google wants to see some serious interactions on g plus . Who knows mine is set up and I don't show up yet.You get the thumbnail regardless if you dont nkow what you are talking about.
Sitelinks is what you mean.
I took a look at the article and see what they meant.I did have my authorship thumbnail showing up. But it went bye bye about two months ago. :sad:
I did read this blog http://moz.com/ugc/google-plus-authorship-one-critical-thing-you-need-to-know and made the suggested adjustments recommended since in my settings it was default set to also include authorship on pages too. I did that about a month ago and my authorship thumbnail still has not returned. :no:
The link you attached is to your businesses. Can you link your personal Google+ Page? That is where you will get the authorship status and profile image from.Yes , the deeper and more in twined in the Google system we must go as business owners. They are even working on automated vehicles so we never stop surfing .
