However...even if it's perfect, Google just isn't displaying it for most people. Why? I dunno. And for some of us, they've given, and then taken away again, sometimes more than once.

Mine were showing, then stopped. I got them showing again though, but as usual I changed everything at once so no idea what fixed it.
I first added my author page to the "Other profiles" list in G+ as well as the domain to the "Contributor to" list.
Then on my author page, which is linked to from every blog page with the rel="me" code, I link back to the Google+ profile page with pluses on both sides of my name and using the rel="author" code - I read that plusses should be used, was never sure where to added everywhere.
<a href="https://plus.google.com/******************/about" rel="me" target="_blank">+My Name on Google+</a>
No doubt various steps are not required, but it worked so I am sticking with it.
Oh, on another site which also works, I just had a + before my name on the author page.

Indeed I found myself re-reading it in it's entirety, happily identifying various web and search personalities, Google 'penalties', et al as I went. Tommorrow I shall see who and what Lewis Carroll forsaw in Through The Looking-Glass...

For my real estate site I set it up 3 weeks ago. I thought that I was getting the photos but it was only when I was logged in to Google. (Was seeing my Google plus info). I still don't have anything if I am logged out.
