A few months ago, I had GWT acknowledgment for 200 pages on one site. I thought (knew) that was low.
So, I added authorship to 30 more pages. Over a few days, GWT gave me credit for 230. That seemed just right.
Then, over the next few weeks, it dropped. 228, 225, 222, 218 and now today, 211. What's going on? Why do you lose credit for authorship over time? This is exactly as I expected, since I started out with over 300.
Is some special Google massage required to get them to report the ACTUAL AND TRUE number? Please tell me what it is. I am about ready to dump it all, and never look back. We spend hours and jump through their hoops, then get kicked in the teeth. Why bother?
