    So for most of my local clients, especially in Law, i set up google authorship so their image gets indexed next to their serps. Is there any reason why this would be bad for some businesses? For example if I set up authorship for a local computer company, a plumbing company etc for their home page serp links.

    I read an article on this issue some weeks back it's here:

    I'll also advice that you ask your clients if they are OK with it.

    All in all, I don't think this should cause any issues.
