|Google has withdrawn its authorship program from showing into the Search Results|
Google had started the authorship program 3 years back when it started supporting the rel='author' tag & later started showing author photos in the search results. Now, since June 2014 Google stopped showing the author photos & later in August 2014 stopped supporting the rel='author' tag altogether.
Reasons stated were :
- Low adoption rates by authors & webmasters.
- Low value for searchers.
- Minute difference in clickthrough rates
