Will not update to correct profile link. (7 posts)

    Hello. When I first installed the plugin, I tried to link to my G+ page rather than my profile. Of course that didn't work. I updated the link in WordPress, but Google is not seeing it. The Rich Snippet Tool says this (links to my page):

    author
    linked author profile = https://plus.google.com/103053892056722489505
    google profile = https://plus.google.com/103053892056722489505

    My profile is entered correctly on the user page:
    https://plus.google.com/117828508641912202446

    It's been that way for several weeks, so it shouldn't be a case of waiting for Google to update. The author page displays the correct profile link: http://www.absurdreviews.com/author/tourabsurd/

    Where am I going wrong?

    Site is http://www.absurdreviews.com

    Let me clarify. This is the complete section that the RST shows:

    Extracted Author/Publisher for this page

    author
    linked author profile = http://www.absurdreviews.com/author/tourabsurd/

    author (extracted from page content)
    author name = Katrina Stovold
    google profile = https://plus.google.com/117828508641912202446
    full name from G+ profile = Katrina Stovold

    google profile = https://plus.google.com/103053892056722489505
    We could not find a link to http://www.absurdreviews.com from the Other profiles or Contributor to section of your Google Profile to verify this page. Learn more.

    I just added the page URL to the publisher field, but this was showing before that. When I look at the code for the home page, I can find the G+ page link in two spots: the publisher field and the badge on the sidebar. I don't know where Google is getting the idea that it's still an author link.

    Help?

    @ groupemedia You need to add a link in the Contributor section of the your Google+ page back to the Author page on your WordPress site

    See step 5 in the "Your 6 Step Checklist" in the sidebar on http://www.authorsure.com

    @Tour Absurd

    Google indicated "Verified: Authorship is verified via email addresses." - firstly remove the email address from the header. Google may be getting confused if you have multiple validation methods

    Your Contributor Link on your Google+ page https://plus.google.com/117828508641912202446/about should link back to
    http://www.absurdreviews.com/author/tourabsurd/

    @groupemedia

    https://plus.google.com/103642590627465788109/about is a Google+ Profile not a Google+ page

    You need to create a Google+ Page for the site http://www.centerserv.com/ and use the URL of this Google+ page in the rel=publisher section on AuthorSure
