Google+ %#@$^&

Last Update: September 25, 2014

I've just about had it with Google+ - and everything else! I got up at 2:37am just so I could get in here to WA and find what I've missed. First off I got into my Yahoo email to check things out. Replied/liked some of what the fine people here at WA had to say, then cleared everything else so I could spend the remaining free time on my sites.

I tried to sign in at WA and got "504 Error, Gateway timed out" HUH?! I could access everything else, just not WA. I looked it up and in a nutshell 504 errors have to do with the servers (blah, blah....blah)! 3:00 am is way too early for this crap!So I go back to my email etc. Figured to give it some time and try again. Still no go. Finally I just re-started my computer and Lo and Behold we have contact (Yea Me)!

I go fishing about and backtracking looking for overlooked stuff and found the bit about Google Authorship (you know, how to get the little G+ sign up with your profile & stuff), so I did that. The 1st time I guess I did it wrong, so I did it again. V..E..R..B..A..T..I..M. still no little "Good Girl You Did It" sign! So I look on the profile About me page. Now on the left side where it names my sites with the word "verify" along side them, I figure maybe I must verify these first, so I click on the word "verify" and it says Error sending email to...(my sites)"! I know they are there! They are listed on my "Contributes to" page! GRRRR!

I know that I set up the WP/WA email area correctly 'cuz I checked! I tried the Rich Snippet tools and ...MORE HOOPS TO JUMP THROUGH!

Something is missing somewhere for me. Well, I can make a novel out of this post by complaining and getting nothing done, or I can make ANOTHER pot of coffee and get to it and find where I screwed up. Good thing I like coffee...See Ya's later!!! (an emoticon would come in handy right here)

Coffee + chocolate = the only thing to worry about today. Google authorship = no worries (didn't even worry about it)

Coffee I'z gotz... Chocolate...on my way! I thought it was necessary to have the authorship to verify my sites. At least that's what my G+ account kept telling me! Lies! All Lies! Never trust the internet! Now, about that chocolate...

Sorry to hear Theresa. I hear ya on the authorship madness. I also had this issue and it was extremely frustrating so I basically ignored it. It's really important anymore and is much more of a headache than anything else as far as I'm concerned.

Whenever these things happen, I like to get my mind off things by doing something completely different.

Kristy's right. More coffee! I'm not sure whether you should worry much about authorship. This is the best post I've ever read on the subject by our own Robert Prescott. Now breathe. You CAN do this. If I can do it, anybody can do it!
