Tons of choices out there on Microlancer : https://www.microlancer.com/explore/logos-branding?sort=recommendedI used this guy https://www.microlancer.com/explore/logo-design/3810-original-wordmark-logo for a logo and was happy with the result
The page rank that is shown on the Google Toolbar and such is no longer updated that frequently , the last update took about 10 months or so and was around Dec 2013.
PageRank is directly related to number of quality follow links coming in to you website. I know it’s easier said than done but having high quality sites linking to you website is a good way to bolster your page rank..Suggested Reading : http://infolab.stanford.edu/~backrub/google.html
It’s one or the other I haven’t seen both of them simultaneously .. When I tried just then I got the ones without the head-shot too. Its quite random from what I can see.
One obvious situation when your author snippets might show up is before the review snippets kicks in, during the initial few days of your item being indexed.
@Typps Glad I got you interested in G+ but I don’t think I can take credit for the Rating rich snippet. We had a small issue with that which our devs took care of : http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/-coming-soon-visual-refresh-/120059?page=60#990848
.... Please see the Envato Notes about Compressing images, I can’t find it now but it’s a really good article.
I am so happy see more of our authors on G+. Just quickly wanted to let you know that at this stage we are not planning to adding author G+ brand pages as verified pages to the Marketplace.
One of the main reason for that is the fact that Google has not clearly specified how it plans to use the rel publisher tag yet. They don’t have any clear documentation around it ( the page which used to have some info on it is no longer available ). From what I recall the rel publisher association helps a business create a shared identity by linking the business’ website to the business’ Google+ Page and from the initial plan it looked like they seem to only talk about it as a one-to-one relationship.
You can still take ownership of your item via the author tag as specified here : http://notes.envato.com/authors/take-ownership-of-your-marketplace-items-via-g-authorship/. I hope this help
