Get Rich Snippets for Rich Results 

Rich snippets are Google search results that show extra data like ratings or reviews. While it isn’t a ranking factor it can still help with the SEO of your website. Studies by the Search Engine Journal show that users are more likely to click on rich results vs non-rich results. Rich snippets allow for more of your webpage’s content to be viewed. This helps users determine if your web page is relevant to their search. It also increases organic click-through rates, which means people are stay longer on your website and less time bouncing out. Here are several types of the most common snippets to be aware of:

Use Structured Data to Get Rich Snippets

Structured data is a type of standardized code format that communicates information about your business’s web page content to search engines. It must contain two important factors to be successful: Schema and the format. Schema is the vocabulary that tells the search engine about the entity elements on your page and the format is the type of markup code that communicates schema to the search engine. These formats are JSON-LD, microdata, and RDFa with JSON-LD favored by Google. An example of creating structured data for a Rich Snippet would be:

Say you have a recipe for chocolate chip cookies on your bakery’s website. You could add structured data for the recipe:

  • Cooking duration
  • Nutritional information
  • Ingredients
  • Instructions, etc. is a site dedicated to the universal vocabulary for structured data. You can use the website to help you write and test your structured data snippets, regardless of format. Additional tools like Google’s Structured Data Markup Helper can generate the markup code instead of writing it from scratch and Google’s Rich Results Test tool to see which rich results Google generates from your markup code.
