Call me cynical but this push to get everyone on google plus and “authorship” now benefits the advertisers as displaying their photo in the adds pushes the organics yet further down the page….
Was this the end goal motive behind “authorship” and getting people on it in the first place with carrot on stick phrases like “will be a ranking factor…one day”? I See no benefit for the “user” when they will only display POSITIVE statements, but I do see a benefit to google by pushing organics further down the page. <snip>
