      Button
       If users point backs to the search results after reading the author tagged article for a certain period
       of time, Google will add three more additional links to similar articles referring to the same author
       below the clicked link. If the user clicks on the search results with author tagged, and after reading
a post on a site, he hits back button to return to the Google SERP (Search Engine Result Page), then the
original result will show several extended links referring to other content by the same author. But result
only triggers if user stayed on the page for some amount of time. Google will add a new “More by Author
Name” indicating three more additional links to the article. Refer to Snapshot below:




If user makes use of back button very quickly or go back to the search result page fast then no extra links
will appear, as Google is measuring the time that the user spares on reading that article, if Google thinks
that you enjoyed reading the article or was informative then only it will show up extra links. In this case,
engagement is measured in the amount of time user spends on that piece of content. This also confirms
that creating content that actually engages people and gets read will be an important factor in
AuthorRank, as Google obviously wants to show more results from the same author in that event.

Google did, though, confirm that this is part of the authorship feature:

If a user visits an article by an author and it seems like they’d be interested in finding more articles by this
author, when they click the “Back” button to return to the results page, we’ll show more results by that
author.
