    I have my Google+ picture markup thingy on my website for quite some time now. It seems in the past week that the picture has quit showing up and I have done nothing to change that. I have a friend who is having the same issue, but Google’s authorship tool shows it all good. I’m not sure what I need to do to fix this

    That’s really a Google issue and not Genesis or WordPress; many people have seen their G+ image disappear from SERPs even with correct structured data markup re: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets# . Ask in the Google product forums; it’s an issue or service change on their end.

    Google uses a variety of quality guidelines to determine when to show rich snippets, having properly marked up data doesn’t guarantee that they will always appear in search. Also, recently Matt Cutts shared that Google was going to be cutting back on the amount of rich snippets returning in search. He also shared they were going to be tightening up the qualifications. If all elements of authorship are in place e.g acceptable profile image, profile visible in search etc and data is marked up correctly there’s not much more an author can do but to keep writing, good quality content and ensure they’re following Google Quality Guidelines.

    Don’t feel like the lone ranger. Just read this article:

    Almost everyone in the real estate industry got hit across the board. I am sure Google switched their algorithm so that other “types” of sites also got removed. What about your competitors in your local market? Did they also disappear?

    Vegas Agent, I’m responsible for a couple of websites, but one of them is a friend of mine, he is a chiropractor in St. George Utah, only one competitor is still showing, there were about 2-3 on the 1st page of Google, but now there is only 1, our arch enemy!!!!!!

    On my website, (which is geared more towards a national audience, not local) I have lost everything on every page, I’m not sure how I’m going to get it back, but I must have it back

    Believe me, I am upset too! But I really don’t know how we are going to accomplish that. All my competitors are gone for it too.
