Authorship Photos – Sayonara, It was nice to know you
In case you are living under an SEO rock or this is the only blog you are reading, John Mueller announced the end of author photos:
We’ve been doing lots of work to clean up the visual design of our search results, in particular creating a better mobile experience and a more consistent design across devices. As a part of this, we’re simplifying the way authorship is shown in mobile and desktop search results, removing the profile photo and circle count. (Our experiments indicate that click-through behavior on this new less-cluttered design is similar to the previous one.)
