There are two methods which can solve this problem.

First Method:

2. Now Press Ctrl+F and find for the words “hfeed” and “hentry”.

3. Now replace the words with “h-feed” and “h-entry” respectively.

4. Now save the template from above top.

5. Now check your Authorship markup warning using this Structured Data Testing Tool.

This method should solve your errors effectively. In case if it doesn’t work, follow the second method.

Second Method:

1. Go to Blogger DashBoard –› Select your Blog –› Click on Template –› Edit HTML

2. Now Press Ctrl+F and find for the words ‘timestamp-link’ and ‘published’, like the below code

<a class=’timestamp-link’ expr:href=’data:post.url’ rel=’bookmark’ title=’permanent link’><abbr class=’published’ expr:title=’data:post.timestampISO8601′><data:post.timestamp/></abbr></a>

 

3. Now carefully change the above highlighted word published to ‘updated published’, which should look like

<a class=’timestamp-link’ expr:href=’data:post.url’ rel=’bookmark’ title=’permanent link’><abbr class=’updated published’ expr:title=’data:post.timestampISO8601′><data:post.timestamp/></abbr></a>

In second method, in th 3rd step we have changed ‘published’ to ‘updated published’ but we didn’t do anything with ‘timestamp-link’. Now we have to change ‘timestamp-link’ also if the above code doesn’t work.

So from the 3rd step of second method, remove ‘timestamp-link’ from the code and replace it with ‘updated’. By this the code should look like below

<a class=’updated’ expr:href=’data:post.url’ rel=’bookmark’ title=’permanent link’><abbr class=’updated published’ expr:title=’data:post.timestampISO8601′><data:post.timestamp/></abbr></a>

Save the code and test for Authorship markup warning using this Structured Data Testing Tool.

var obj0=document.getElementById(“aim12044767716157745897”);
var obj1=document.getElementById(“aim22044767716157745897”);
var s=obj1.innerHTML;
var r=s.search(/x3C!– adsense –x3E/igm);
if(r>0) {obj0.innerHTML=s.substr(0,r);obj1.innerHTML=s.substr(r+16);}
