Rich Snippets: How to Make Your PrestaShop Store Rank Higher

Google is a behemoth when it comes to product searches, and we all know it!

With the sheer amount of people, a mouth-gaping 63,000 per second,  searching for products and product reviews on Google, getting to the top of the SERPs should be a priority.

Luckily, Google itself offers a vast range of features and tools that, when used effectively, reap unprecedented results. One such way is rich snippets. This Google feature, although not widely used by many eCommerce sites, help set your product pages apart from the competition. And this is what exactly an online business wants: to differentiate itself from others in the same industry.

Before you wonder what exactly are these, we’d like to pop that bubble.

What Are Rich Snippets?
Rich Snippets, as they are commonly known, are bits of structured data that help search engines to easily understand your site data and organize that information in a user-friendly way. They are integrated into your website and make your pages appear in the SERP of search engines along with extra features.

The type of information can vary: consumer opinions, people, ratings, products, prices, establishments, recipes, events, music, 5-star ratings, etc.
