Google Rich Snippets WordPress Plugin

Have you ever seen …

that cool stuff that “pimps” search results on Google? This plugin helps you to generate this search results by using structured microdata. According to the website search engines including Bing, Google, Yahoo! and Yandex rely on this markup to improve the display of search results, making it easier for people to find the right web pages.

This plugin automatically pre-installs seven shortcodes that are ready-to-use. But it‘s also possible to create new shortcodes with your own microdata markup that you need for future purposes. This can be done very easy with the built-in Shortcode-Generator.

It works like this:

  • Set up your own short code or just edit the pre-installed ones
  • Define the HTML-Markup that you need for the microdata
  • Save your settings and use the generated shortcode in your posts, pages or custom post types.

Supported snippets

On their support sites the Google-guys wrote that the following snippets are supported:

  • Reviews
  • People
  • Products
  • Businesses and organizations
  • Recipes
  • Events
  • Music

(I’ve tested all snippets with the rich snippet testing tool. And they all seemed to work except the recipe ones. This one doesn’t work even if you use their own example.)

Use the built-in Shortcode-Generator

Or just use the built-in Shortcode-Generator to generate cool shortcodes like buttons or boxes on your own!
Or… do you want to display your Google+ profile picture in the search results?

Please note: Google says that there is no guarantee that a Rich Snippet will be shown for your page on actual search results.
