Today, I spent a few minutes integrating the Google Rich Snippets for Reviews on WPKube blog.
For those who don’t know, Rich Snippets are markup tags that webmasters can put in their sites that will give users convenient summary information about their search results at a glance.
It is a new presentation of snippets that applies Google’s algorithms to highlight structured data embedded in web pages.
Here’s a short video explaining, what exactly Rich snippets are and how they work.
Use AuthorhReview plugin for adding the rich snippets for reviews in WordPress.
AuthorhReview is fantastic plugin coded by Hesham Zebdia of FamousBloggers. Every setting of this plugin can be set on the options page of the plugin. It won’t take you more than 5 minutes to install and set-up the plugin.
Add hReview and AggregateRating support based on schema.org, increase search traffic by making SERP results more eye-catching. This plugin supports only the editorial ratings submission (edito/author rating), this means customers and site visitors are not involved in the rating process, this means rating reflects only the author opinion.
Here’s step by step guide on how to install & configure the AuthorhReview plugin.
Step 1: Navigate to Plugins > Add New > search for “Author hReview” or if you’re familiar with installing plugins in wp than you might want to download it from the WordPress directory and upload it manually.
Step 2: Activate the plugin and configure the plugin from widgets area. Configure the options from the plugin Options Page and put a nice widget either in sidebar or footer.
Step 3: You’re almost done. All you have to do is to complete the settings on the your Review posts.
