Have you ever done a search on Google or other major search engine, and among the search results, spotted entries with star ratings, price, availability info, etc? How did they do that? The answer is Rich Snippets (also called microdata or microformats, etc.)

What are rich snippets?

"Rich snippets" is a geeky term for tags telling the search engines (or whoever is interested) what is what in your web pages. When a human looks at a web page (or specifically a shopping web page, since we are all Aabaco Stores), it's quite obvious what the product image is, what's its name, price, etc. If you use customer reviews, there may be stars showing the average rating, etc. While the big search engines are pretty smart these days and can deduce some of this info by trying to decipher the HTML source of the page, digging for precise information is like digging for gold in the dark. With rich snippets, your pages will include special markers the search engines recognize so they will say, "aha, this is the price of this item", or "this is the product image", manufacturer, average rating, etc. Basically what you are doing is feeding the search engines the precise product parameters so they don't have to bend over backwards to try to find it.

As a side note, if you provide shopping feeds to Google, you are halfway there because your product feed already includes the essential information Google is looking for. If you don't provide shopping feeds yet, you should check out Yourstorewizard.com's feed service. They make feed generation and submission totally painless for you.

When you order rich snippets from us, we will modify your store templates so the snippets will be part of every product page in your store. When Google or any other major search engine brings up your listing, yours will stand out with the added information. As an added bonus, we will also install canonical tags. Read about canonical tags here.

While Google does not guarantee that the information they find this way will be shown or used in their search results (they are Google, after all, they won't guarantee anything), tagging your pages with rich snippets is considered a "best practice". Kind of like having proper keywords or description meta tags. Order yours today!

A note about customer reviews

Our customer reviews (the latest version) and some of the other vendors' such as Practical Data includes rich snippets for the reviews that are loaded into the store. If you have a third party customer reviews package not set up by us, you should inquire with the company that set up your reviews about rich snippets and their particular reviews system. When we set up rich snippets in a Aabaco Store, we are only able to add the necessary tags to the templates but not to third party customer reviews systems.

And a little small print stuff from Google:
  • It may take some time for rich snippets to appear in search results or Place Pages.
  • Marking up your data for rich snippets won't affect your page's ranking in search results.
  • Google doesn’t guarantee to use your markup.

Questions & Answers about Rich Snippets for Yahoo Stores

Will this feature mess up anything in my store?
No. Rich snippets work "behind the scenes". They are like meta data, such as your keywords or description meta tags; they don't get displayed on your pages. They are attached to parts of your pages, such as where you display the product price, product name, etc., so the search engines can identify those parts for what they are.
