@Freshegg team have been doing some experiments with Google Plus profile photo and how fast it was reflected on search results. Some key takeaways:
- Changing Google Plus profile pic immediately changes your Google search result
- Non-photo ("Are you sure people will recognise you in this photo? It doesn’t seem to have a face in it.") images are removed within a day
- Images that violate the search engine’s content policy, are removed within hours
- It takes 2-3 weeks for the "headshot"/proper photo to re-appear in search results
- You can absolutely put someone else's face there and get away with that:
