Author in Google search results
So I decided to play with the author “box” in Google search results...
Added invisible link to my empty Google profile... For now the author is not shown.

Looks like I’m not alone: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!categories/webmasters/structured-data
Thus the explanation can be:
To increase the likelihood of author information returning in search it is best to follow Google guidelines. I recommend removing the rel=“author” tag from pages not suited for authorship, for example, homepage, category pages, archives as well as any other pages that contain a listing of articles. In a nutshell the tag should only appear on blog post pages or pages with a single-article.
Time to move the authorship tag to Meta?..
