I would like to know how one can gain Google+ ownership of a user group page on GDO.
As one of the organizers of Inland Empire Drupal, https://groups.drupal.org/inland-empire, I am unsure how this has occurred without consent. A Google search for "Inland Empire Drupal" shows ownership for an individual who is not even listed as Group organizer. As it is my understanding, there are two options for claiming ownership of a page. One is having an email address on the domain in question and other is placing a related "rel=author" tag in the content. A scan of source code reveals no "rel=" tag so I am clueless. Unless I am wrong, I don't believe this occurs accidentally through a Google crawler.
I have attached a screenshot for historical purposes.
