I keep trying to connect Google Authorship with my WordPress account because it impacts CTR, but I can’t figure out how to make my authorship show up. What can I do?
The easiest way to get authorship to appear is to install WordPress SEO by Yoast (http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/) and ensure the Google section of your profile links to your Google Plus profile. You'll also need to link back to your own site FROM your Google Plus profile.
What have you done so far, where is an example URL, and why do you think it doesn't work? Bear in mind that Google actually approves sites before they get authorship - it doesnt happen automatically just because you have the right markup - so if you're site is obviously spammy or just not getting any traffic, don't expect it to get authorship either.
