What happened to Google Authorship Photos?
A recent change to the Search world that really shook the webmasters and Search engine analysts by surprise was when Google officially “removed” all the Google Plus Authorship photos from the search results. That means from now on, even though the name of the author will appear below each of the articles like it used to do (thereby linking to G+ profile) but the photo wouldn’t continue to appear.
In my opinion, this was an awesome advancement to search engine results when Google introduced the “Authorship” feature. Below is how search results with the new authorship would look like without the author photo.
