Google removes author photos from search results

- Shared publicly  -  Jun 25, 2014
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.)

There's also a great analysis of this decision @ Search Engine Land.
