Hello
I am writing about my site, IslandJay.com. I am not sure if Semper has the solution for me regarding an authorship issue. My site has been accepted for authorship with google. It works great except for the home page.

If you GOOGLE “Island Jay Buffett”, you will get two results for my site.
The first is for my home page itself, but my avatar is an “icon”
The second is an article I wrote about Jimmy Buffet, which has my authorship avatar.

Clearly, it doesn’t look good to have that icon as my avatar for the home page. Now I am assuming this is all because for the home page does NOT have a Post or Page with an author related to it.

Not sure how to fix this. I did contact my theme developer, UDESIGN, but they said this is more of a SEO Plugin solution. They suggested yours and YOAST. As you are my plug in of choice for almost a year, I am writing you. To me this is a theme issue as I cannot tell google that my home page has an author because the home page does not have a post or page associated with it. They think otherwise.

Thoughts?

Thank you
Jason

I added the code to my themes section and perhaps this helped. Looks good for this.

However, this made me notice a new problem. My site title is not appearing on a google result.
If you google ISLAND JAY, then I come up of course. However, my site title is not next to my site name in the Google results
But if you go to my page, you can see my site title says

Island & Beach Life | Ladies Resort Wear & Men’s Resort Wear

And this is exactly what I have in there for my Home Title and I have my USE ORIGINAL TITLE as disabled.

Thoughts?
Thanks!

Ok, so it was grabbing just the ISLAND JAY from my Setting > General ?
I just changed the title in there to “Island & Beach Life | Ladies Resort Wear + Men’s Resort Wear”
If I leave it as is, do you see any more issues that may develop?

The all in on flavicon doesnt have any setting to adjust the title, etc, but I can see how any plug in could cause an issue here. Do you have any suggestions for a different flavicon plugin?

thanks!

It must be on Facebook WP plug in. Oddly when I disabled it all my User gravitars defaulted to the gravatar logo. Go figure.
Well if you do not see any issues with the way it is, I do not see a reason to “fix it”

I am researching the Google Authorship information for the first time.  I just watched this video on YouTube about it and it cleared up a few things for me but also muddied the waters a bit on a few other things.  One thing the presenter said was that the image used in Google Authorship should actually be a picture of you.  “Google uses facial recognition, just like FaceBook and Google is all about branding.  And you are the brand…”  I’m paraphrasing but that is essentially it.

I did google your site and I do not see any authorship images in the SERP.

Here’s the video name:  “

Everything You Need To Know About Google Authorship in 8 Minutes (Chris Countey)

 

Hope that helps.
