Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Wrong G authorship (owner is first comment-writer)

  • Hi,

    This is the problem:

    The authorship of some posts is the first comment-writer instead of the author. When the author replies he becomes the owner of authorship again.

    WordPress version: 3.5.1
    WordPress SEO version:1.4.7

    What I did:

    1.) I set up the Author-Meta-Tag and Google Publisher Site settings in the plugin and followed Yoast instruction from the help pages and blogposts (

    I expected the plugin to do this:
    The Plugin should put the Authors Name in each post, and enable google to find the authors name automatically, so that the g+picture and authorship is on every search result.

    Instead it did this:

    Only some post have a g+picture in googles search results.
    Sometimes another person has the ownership of my posts. (First comment writer)

    You can see that here (Google search results)

    Home someone can tell my, what I did wrong!?


    PS: The Googles snippet testing tool cannot find the authors name automatically on the website, when doing the emailvarification. Everything else seems fine.
