Google Authorship Question

I checked the structured data testing tool and everything is fine. The size of the pic is fine and it is a sharp headshot.

But lately, my photo is not showing up in the SERPS.

Is there anything I can do to help my chances of Google using the photo more often?

    Remember that Google makes it very clear that while setting up authorship makes a page eligible to include authorship data, it's not guaranteed. So if the info is showing up in the structured data tool than i don't think there's much more you can do.

    How long have you been implementing the authorship? It can take time and it is at Google's mercy when to show it in the SERPs.

    It took me about 6 months before Google started showing my headshot in SERPs. I honestly forgot all about it until I noticed a surge in traffic and realized that I was now included in Authorship.

    My photo was prominently showing for months. Then, all of a sudden, about 10 days ago, it stopped showing up.
