The Rich Snippet or enriched fragments are the references of a content that is found in web search engines. It is an appetizer that users can see before clicking on the page, which often guides them to the answers they are looking for. Search engines use the Rich Snippet to display results to users.

Rich snippets came to enrich the results and improve the user experience in search engines, but in reality these search engines are not obliged to always show them and although everyone wants to get to position in them, it also has its disadvantages but before I want to explain better what are the Rich Snippet and how they improve the SEO experience.

What are Rich Snippets?

This is data that shows the summary of the description of the websites and these are only shown in search engines. It shows the description along with the URL of the account and can add a small featured image. This allows you to increase the visibility of your article.

They are data that summarize an extract of some content on the web, search engines usually associate it in the first position because they are very well aligned with the user's searches or because they consider it to be quite organic and useful content. Normally in this space we find quick answers to the questions we are looking for, and it is common to see a recipe, steps to do some detailed repair or a great reference photo.

Learn to optimize your content to appear in the first places and to properly relate them to your content to improve the user's SEO experience with your page and in turn take advantage of being considered by Google as useful and well-categorized content.

Types of rich snippets

The snippet displays small data from a website but there are two ways to appear on one: with a rich snippet or organically with a fisher snippet.

βœ”Rich Snippet: It is a snippet that shows the description of a website but also shows other data such as a small image, the url and the short description of the content. This can be created by editing the HTML code of an article or directly from tools such as wordpress.
βœ”Fisher Snippet: Google decides it for the engagement or because it considers it quite useful for the user (SEO), but it has a disadvantage, it may be so well explained in that extract taken by google or it is so organic that people receive all the information without even opening the link.

Appearing in both helps to anticipate the user to the content that they will find when entering and help them make the decision to click. Both are quite positive for a web page because they help generate traffic to the web in one way or another.

Advantages of rich snippets :

βœ”There are more chances to capture the reader,
βœ”Helps you highlight content,
βœ”you can show the reader that other users have found the content useful,
βœ” Provides the opportunity to position themselves as experts in some topics thanks to the author photo option.
βœ”It will be much larger than normal search results and invites the click.
βœ”The user already associates that content as relevant.

Disadvantages of rich snippets:

✘If it is very well explained, the user can read all the content without entering your page and can decrease your CTR.
✘If it is not attractive enough, it can make the user not click.
But without a doubt, its advantages are greater than its disadvantages, because if you know how to do them correctly, the most important information will be when you click on your page and you can also be considered content that is adding value to the community.

Types of Rich Snippets
