Google & Rich Snippets

10/17/11

Recently, I was noticing that certain sites had special listings in Google searches. For instance they had a category break down or breadcrumb of the page. I.E.  - "Buy > Hardware > Hammer > ABC Company Steel Hammer."

So with a little digging, I was able to find the following article on rich snippets:

These rich snippets are not guaranteed to show in the search results, but gives us the chance to have much sharper looking Google search results.

I immediately wanted to implement this on my e-commerce site: ThePlasticBrick.com

To see it in action:

To see the technical specification of Rich Snippets, please refer to the afore mentioned article from Googl.

They also provide a testing tool:
