Google Publisher Coming To Search Results With Google+ Logo?

Google+ iPhone AppAs you know, authorship in the search results is a big deal. In fact, I am missing my face big time in the search results. But now, it seems that Google was testing Google+ company logos in the search results.

Here is a screen shot:

Google Publisher Logo

Note, this page doesn't have rel publisher code on it. It did however have a verified Google+ page and web site linked in the Google+ profile.

I spotted this via siegemedia.com and reported it on Search Engine Land last night.

I can no longer see this coming up in the search results. It worked for me last night.

So it is either a weird bug or a feature Google was testing.

Personally, I like it but hey - it is not my search engine.

I have found with a few clients that if you verify their G+ page and associate it with their website in Webmaster tools you can achieve this result. I have also found that this helps to improve information found in the knowledge graph.

do you believe Google when they said they have no intention of supporting "Publishership"? http://searchengineland.com/no-publishership-isnt-coming-soon-to-google-search-to-join-authorship-158747
