    When I set my Google Authorship up my SERPs didn't change until the site was crawled again. You can force Google to fetch your site in WMT. The only issue I had was getting my image to show on my website, mine was showing in the SERPS but not on my site, then I realized I had to set up an account with Gravatar.

    I've tried to setup google authorship on 2 sites now without any luck with the image showing. They do make it clear that they don't promise to show it but my next step in trying to get this to work is to make sure the google+ accounts are more active in hopes this will make the google gods happy and show the picture.

    If your sites are Wordpress sites, then you can get a plug in to enter your Google+ info a little easier. One thing that I've found is that 9 times out of 10 Google will not: show an Authorship picture that is not a picture of a face, and show Authorship of a Page you have created in Google+.

    You have to picture on your personal Google+ profile and link to that.

    Hope this helps.

    I realise that this thread is old, but I'm actually having an issue with this.

    A guest contributor that I allowed on my blog seems to show up with the rich snippet:



    I on the other hand:



    The markup is correct as it's showing up with my face on the "Structured Data Testing Tool". I've heard it might be the image, but I've changed that to no effect. (I changed it a month ago)

    Still doesn't seem to be working.

    Thoughts?

    Unfortunately Google disappear author image and Google+ circle count from SERP. So if anyone out there has problem sorry to say but its not working on now at all. But still, you will see your author name in SERP.
