In recent years, search engines have become more user-friendly by including smarter, context-sensitive results, such as local search and Google's new Knowledge Graph. While these changes are great for searchers, they often make it hard for even top-ranked search results to grab a user's attention. Rich Snippets are one way to make your website's search results more eye-catching and boost your click-through rates and conversions.

"Rich Snippets” refer to extra information which enhances a search result, telling you more about the website’s content before clicking on it. The most common form of snippet is the 5-star rating, but there are many others that can augment results for blog posts, products, apps and more.

In this presentation, Wayne Eaker of Zengenuity will describe what Rich Snippets are, explain what types of search results can be improved with them, and give a non-technical overview of how you configure your website to support them. He will show some real world examples, and demonstrate tools for creating and testing your own Rich Snippets code.
