How To Add Rich Snippets to Blogger
Formats of Rich Snippets
You can use these rich snippets by using three formats.
- MicroFormats and
- RDFa ( Resource Description Framework in Attributes)
I’m not going into deep, but in the above formats , Microdata is recommended by google.
Google Search Engine supports these formats for contents on, Reviews,People,Business or any organizations, recipes, music and events.
For example you are writing a review on any movie or any product or services generally aggregate ratings or Individual ratings are given.
For that you can use this code on your blogger post for giving ratings . Use HTML Editor and paste the following code at the end of your post.
<div itemscope itemtype=”http://schema.org/Product”>
<span itemprop=”name”>Search Engine Optimization Tutorial (Your Targeted Keyword must be placed here)</span>
<div itemprop=”aggregateRating” itemscope itemtype=”http://schema.org/AggregateRating”>
Rated <span itemprop=”ratingValue”>4.5</span>/5 based on <span itemprop=”reviewCount”>6895</span> reviews
The highlighted part can be changed as per your requirement.
