Bad news, friends: In June of 2014, Google removed Google Authorship photos from search engine results pages. While your name and byline would still appear, your beautiful headshot would not.! Then, in August of 2014, Google struck the final blow to Authorship and completely dismantled the program. All byline info disappeared from Google’s search results, and marketers everywhere let out a collective, “What?!”! For the past few years we’ve been touting the importance of getting Google Authorship set up on your blog. But for 2015 — and the foreseeable future — you can forget about Authorship altogether: It no longer exists.
