Rich snippets or schema markup can be applied to a wide range of content types. Rich snippets apply to an array of qualified content for viewing, reading, listening or other consumption such as reviews, people, products, businesses and organizations, recipes, events, music, and videos. Content types such as products and local business listings are the ones that belong to the Ecommerce category and are typically used for retail purposes.
Web Solution Centre, a goal oriented and customer centric Website Designing Company in Delhi, in this blog will tell you about the various content types on which rich snippets or schema markup can be used.
Reviews: Schema Markup supports both individual and aggregate reviews, with different properties taken into consideration for each.
People: You may have noticed Google and Bing displaying more elaborate and richer information from LinkedIn when you look for certain people (well-known). The same results can be displayed for different websites providing profiles for staff, team members and other personnel crucial to the organization. The support properties, in this case, includes name, title, designation, professional qualifications and contact details.
Product: Products, special offers by merchants, discounts given by various online websites and particular online portals, make the best use of schema markup or rich snippets. Supported properties, in this case, includes name, image, brand, product or offer description, identifiers (ISBN, SKU, etc.) and even reviews, all displayed with price, currency, seller and condition, and quantity.
Recipes: Schema Markup or structured data markup for recipes offer a wide range of properties, allowing owners of websites dealing in culinary, recipe collection or cooking to display everything from the name of the dish, type of dish, reviews, preparation and cooking time to the nutritional information of a particular dish like, fat content, serving size, calories and more.
Events: You can only make use of structured data markup for the future events and not the past. But there is a slight change in the way it is displayed; here the supported properties do not include the complete summary of the event, but the official name of the event. Other properties include tart and end date, duration, ticket details and geographic location.
Music: Only Google supports structured data markup relating to songs and music albums. The supported properties include previews of songs and direct links to buying individual tracks or full albums.
