My author image finally shows in Google listing when searches show my blog or other sites that I have written for. If you look under the first result below, you will see a picture of me and my son then the “by Dave So” link.
I’ve still yet to find solid proof that these author images help with click throughs or conversion rates. At the moment they just kinda seem like a bit of eye candy by Google. Why the hell does my site rank for “dolly noodles” ?? Ha ha, part a little test I was doing a few years ago, just to see if I could – The result, I did!
