You will need to associate your Google Plus account with the webpage that you're searching for.
In you Google Plus account add the website in the 'contributor' section of your profile, then add the following tag to the header of your webpage:
<link rel="publisher" href="GOOGLE_PlUS_ACCOUNT_URL>
Wait a few days for Google to re-index your site and ...
For this to work you need to be able to URL encode some information about your page to insert into links:
URL: http://example.com/mypage.html -> http%3A%2F%2example.com%2Fmypage.html
TITLE: My Page ...
The tag attributerel="autor" is not relevant for Google anymore, the preferred way to specify the authorship is through the proper schema.org snippet.
Authorship in web-search
Authorship markup is no longer supported in web search.

Regarding the publisher ...
It is illegal to copy someone else's written work without their permission. You should also check the terms and conditions of the social network in question as well, because they may also have clauses where they retain some rights of what users post.
Furthermore, search engines typically frown upon content that is copied straight from other pages and rank ...
You can either edit your image, like bybe says, or you can tell Facebook and Google Plus which image to use by using the Open Graph Protocol. If you create a new image and add it to the meta property="og:image"-tag, they should use that image when people share one of your pages.
If you use this, you won't run the risk of Facebook or Google using the wrong ...
I suspect it's because that Person schema is the only schema used on the page, so Google is assuming that the whole page is supposed to be about the person, and that all the other stuff around it is just irrelevant fluff, at least as far as microdata is concerned.
You may want to try marking the whole page as an Article or a Web Page or some other Creative ...
Those are from the Google+ app running on the iPad and iPhone. It's running a modified Chrome browser.
The mention of Mozilla/5.0 has to do with the history of User Agent Strings, and nothing to do with who built the software. See more here: http://webaim.org/blog/user-agent-string-history/
At the highest level, you should never "expect" anything, given there's no guarantee that microdata will even be used if discovered.
Specific to your question, though, this is not one of the documented suported types, so barring some other specialized search engine, at the moment Google doesn't appear to even be looking for this flavor of microdata, much ...
The feature you are looking for is called OPEN GRAPH. Its just a bunch of meta tags you place in the head of your site which tell Facebook information about it. That way when someone shares your site on Facebook, Facebook will use that information to populate the post. This includes the share image.
Here are the meta tags we use (replace xxx with ...
I guess you know the answer yourself, you have done the first important step, that's verifying your website/domain in your Google+ page.
Now just like any other social network, all you have to do is to it keep active, interesting and engaging.
Don't forget to use the Google+ buttons and/or widgets on your website. also it's good to know that now that you'...
Google+ pages can not be used as Authors. Authorship needs a profile (person). Company / Organisation can only have pages therefore they can only be publishers , not authors.
company/organisation page" rel="publisher" />
person profile" rel="author" />

Once revealing the About Tab Contents Click 'Edit Profile' (Near Top ...
Here is a forum that discusses this question. User "adriver38" asked this question to Google and got the following response: (emphasis addid)
You can create a new Places Page for your new restaurant location by selecting "add another business" within your Google Places dashboard. The new page will take a couple of weeks to show up in ...
No, don't give your Google passwords to anyone. Pretty much every Google business tool should allow you to delegate access to additional Google accounts.
Here are support pages for adding users to several Google services.
Google My Business/Google+ pages
Google Webmaster Tools
It's no big secret that Google loves to use algorithms and crazy hard mathematical equations for its return of search results, in both organic and local results. This is no different when Google computes its review average.
The issue here isn't the fact that Google is returning an incorrect review average, the problem is that you are ...
Could be a caching issue, I would give it another week. Also depends how often you update your blog, cause blogs that are updated frequently will have newer content featured on a search engine or revised content featured on a search engine much more faster then a static site.
Probably not since Google allows it and you can manage multiple accounts from one Google+ account both business and personal. Google places migrated to Google plus not too long ago. Have you searched Google specifically to see which of the pages is linked to Google maps in search results? Whichever is showing up in map listings (local listings) at the top of ...
Google will only list one Author per a site on one page of results. Since you are doing the search query "site: your domain" you are pulling up results of your domain and only 1 authorship will be listed in the serps. Your pages are working as intended.
How to Test
There is 2 really good methods of testing your urls to see if the rich snippets are working,...
Well you can use the awesome IFTTT to handle such trigger.
Here are two recipes for Facebook and Twitter:
Blog post to Facebook
Blog post to Twitter
For Google Plus, it seems to be more complicated. If you have a wordpress blog, it will be easy with this recipe. Otherwise, you can customize this one (which is Twitter to G+).
This subject has a great deal of misinformation surrounding it, partly due to the rather vague documentation by Google.
There are very many articles about using Google+ authorship for business, but amazingly none of them have this critical piece of information.
After having searched extensively for the answer to this myself for quite some time, and ...
+1'ing a Google+ page and adding a Google+ page to a circle are two different actions. Currently +1'ing a page will not show that pages content in the stream of the user. If you want users to see a page's content in their stream, you will have to use the follow button or the combined follow/+1 profile badge.
Google has removed the help pages about the +1 reports in Google Webmaster Tools. This indicates to me that the feature is gone for good.
There are still some vestiges in the help section, but which contain lots of broken links:
+1 Reports provides insight into the effects of the Google +1 button on your site's traffic. Data is available for Search ...
At one time, you were able to get DoFollow links from Google Plus. However, that has since been "fixed" and nofollow has been implemented on all external links.
For the past four or five years, the term "Social Signals" has been used to describe links/likes/shares from social networking websites. It is believed that these social signals can have an impact on ...
Is there any downside to registering a Facebook page custom URL or
Google Plus custom URL?
No, this will help users more readily identify links and increase their likelihood of clicking on them.
Is there a risk of these social media custom URLs competing with my
own domain's website and cannibalizing my own traffic?
Not likely, the domain would ...
You should merge the Google+ and Google Local pages - this is the norm now and what Google has even started doing automatically (albeit, it's a bit of a mess in true Google fashion).
This is a business that has a merged page/local profile for example. Thus only requiring one link to website with verification. The automatic process that Google has started ...
This is happening because your logo is a transparent PNG file which is normally fine but because your logo is white it will clash with Google Plus as they use a white background. A simple fix to this solution is to edit your PNG file and give it a solid background color the same of your elements on the website, in this case a background of #...
What and where!
Google uses a local algorithm that is clever 'most of the time'. It understands what users type into Google Search when they are looking for local services such as Plumbers, Cinemas and Bowling Allys as a good example.
It normally associates what and where, it can also associate other words such as in around more specific locations and ...
