If so, you need structured data on your site. Structured data is a way of directly communicating with search engines. By using you can tell search engines what your site or page is about. Search engines no longer have to guess whether a product listing is a product listing, you can now tell them it is. By doing this, you enable Google to highlight your site in new ways. Rich snippets greatly enhance the chance someone clicks on your link. Take a recipe, for instance. A recipe consists of, among other things, ingredients, preparation instructions, cooking time and calories. There might even be reviews on your site by cooks that used your recipe. You can show all this information in the search results if you add recipe structured data to your recipe page. The same goes for job listings, restaurant information, movie times, articles and much, much more. chocolate cheesecake rich snippet US It used to be fairly hard to understand and add structured data.
