[resolved] Sharing in Google Plus shows "author" instead of "title" (9 posts)

    Whenever I share a post from my blog (www.meridiano180.com) in Google Plus, G+ shows my name instead of the blog's title. This happens when sharing posts, but not when sharing the homepage, or a tag...

    Any ideas on what may be happening? Thanks!

    I am also having this issue.

    @xerop what theme are you using?

    @xerop, I think this is a google issue since the share counts are changes.

    Can you tell me if that happens only in some posts or all of them?

    @raafaelll, in all posts I've tried so far, and it's a lot of them... so yes, I think it's in all posts. What do you mean, the share counts?

    @xerop the +1 counts.For me it get's my name, but that only happens sometimes.

    Did you try this: https://developers.google.com/+/web/snippet/

    That worked! Thanks!!

    The theme included a itemprop=name within the author block below the post, making G+ mistake names - taking the author's name instead of the posts'

    Thanks!

    I don't know too much about this, but I have the same problem, does anyone can help me? What do I need to do here: https://developers.google.com/+/web/snippet/ to fix this?
