Just a little over a year ago, Google introduced a new feature in their search results called “rich snippets.” A rich snippet is extra information about a website that appears next to it in search results.
For example, one type of rich snippet that Google supports is for reviews. A rich snippet for a review shows the name of who wrote the review, the date of the review, and the star rating given to the product.
Before SEO Ultimate 3.0, the only way for a WordPress site owner to add support for rich snippets was to dig into the theme code and make manual edits.
Not anymore: SEO Ultimate 3.0 introduces Rich Snippet Creator, a brand-new module that makes adding rich snippets to your WordPress site a cinch.
Once you’ve installed SEO Ultimate or upgraded to the latest version, adding rich snippet code is an easy 3-step process:
- Edit the post/page to which you want to add rich snippet code.
- In the “SEO Settings” box, select “Review” from the “Rich Snippet Type” dropdown and pick a star rating.
- Click “Save Changes” and you’re done! If you want, enter your post’s URL into Google’s testing tool and check out your new rich snippets.
No theme edits, no coding, and no fuss — just the ease and simplicity of SEO Ultimate.
In fact, SEO Ultimate makes things even easier. When you install or upgrade to SEO Ultimate 3.0 or later, Rich Snippet Creator will go back through your old posts, find ones that have a category or tag called “Reviews” or “Review,” and automatically add rich snippet code that includes the post author and the date it was published. (You can go back and add star ratings manually later.) You can also disable this behavior if you want using the Rich Snippet Creator settings page in the SEO Ultimate administration menu.
Google’s new rich snippets feature can increase search traffic by making your SERP results more eye-catching, making the Rich Snippet Creator a powerful addition to SEO Ultimate’s toolkit of modern SEO technology. As far as we know, SEO Ultimate is the only WordPress plugin in the world that adds rich snippet support for review-based content.
