I am glad you guys like it :)

@imangm

A while back Google used to show authorship image along with Individual rating , personally i have not come across authorship image + Aggregate rating

On the marketplace we have aggregate rating so the chances of seeing the authorship image + the stars together is very slim . But Google has been playing around with various formats for these so we can never be sure :).

I think it is still beneficial to claim ownership because

1) before the reviews data kicks in , there is a possibility of your items showing the authorship image ( immediately after you launch an item , you will need to get a few reviews in before the review stats are published ). I would really appreciate it if any of you guys who have activated G+Authorship test this out on you new item before the review data is shown and post the screenshot of the search result if you can _

2) You still get a byline and the trust signals can still flow in to the item.

Hope this helps ..

When i use the rich snippet tool it shows that it worked, but how will i see them in the actual search results?
I don’t see any when i use it, a little clarification might help :)
Thanks

I think it needs some time before the index is updated?

@IngeniousArtist my take is that they look at a lot of things like the domain, activity of the author , niche relevance, etc .

You might also want to remove the . at the end of the /118279810279616059097?rel=author.

Looks like Google eventually pics up the authorship image for items too, it also adds sitelinks to item pages with this ( but the review snippet goes away )

Awesome, didn’t really care too much for g+ authorship but in the end I caved in after reading this thread and setup my g+ profile, set up the profile links and yada yada. A week later, got my custom link, opted to have it and voila, my items are now showing with aggregate ratings on them!

I don’t know if being a little active on g+ helped but I’m hooked now and will likely be much more active on there. It did happen immediately after receiving my custom URL though, which had a phone number verification process. Not sure it’s related at all but it’s something to think about when your aggregate rating isn’t showing.

SaijoGeorge, your a champ! Many thanks for this :)
