Rich Snippets, A must for eCommerce Now

Post by ChipWV » Sun Dec 30, 2012 3:01 pm

I'd really like to have rich snippets added. I feel it is a "must have" for an eCommerce site at this point in time.
A tutorial for integrating into AC 7.0x would be really helpful while we wait to upgrade to Gold,
but this should be something built into Gold. I read a few post from people wanting to add it into
their current site, but I can't find any successful implementation. There are so many files that need to
be touched to include the appropriate snippets, that it would be easy to make a mistake, especially around
all the conditional code.

You've been talking about better SEO in Gold, this is part of that equation.

Rich Snippets have been added to our SEO Manager for Gold, but I'm not sure what sites it is installed on- I didn't do that part of the plugin. You can contact Brad for info.

Thanks so much for this!

I'll reiterate for those not familiar, the rich snippets will help your page stand out in the search results pages. Also, I believe the search engines will reward those sites using rich snippets with a higher listing in results pages. It was the search providers that formulated the rich snippets standards so that websites could provide more granular information to the crawlers. For e-commerce sites this means review ratings, price and stock level will be shown in the search results on Google, Bing, Yahoo, and others.

Thanks
