How Google ‘Rich Snippets’ Can Increase Web Traffic

If you were wondering that How Google ‘Rich Snippets’ Can Increase Web Traffic? Well, let me explain it to you as you might already know that Google has always said they want to provide you the best and the most accurate results and that is why they are always introducing new features and algorithm updates (Panda/Penguin/Venice) to provide better user experience.

As a result every popular brand and online marketing experts are unable to cut corners. Now, the game has changed it’s not about quantity of backlinks it’s about quality and developing trust and providing quality content to the readers. There are so many factors that determine the ranking of your website for instance Bounce Rate and CTR or better known as the click-through rates and that is exactly what matters these days, now that is exactly why many people are using rich snippets to tackle these issues.

What rich snippet does is that it basically provides only a small overview of the content that the user will most likely see on the website. Rich snippets don’t have any direct influence on increasing rankings, nevertheless they add considerable worth the default search results and may also drastically increase your website traffic. There are different types of snippets like Google author bio, star ratings & reviews, these work very well for e-commerce sites there are some other snippets as well for the complete list visit this link.

As i have mentioned earlier Rich snippets can increase the CTR (click through rate) significantly by enhancing the visual aspect of your website’s listing in Search Engine, giving you more details about the content and author,not only it will increase your online visibility but also helps in building trust. They help verify precisely what the person is searching for, and whenever they click through to the web page, these are most likely to spend more time on your website and read the content, this decreases the bounce rate and will increase time on site.

So these were some benefits of using rich snippets, now let’s talk about 2 most popular ‘Rich Snippets’ and how to utilize them:

Google Authorship Snippet

It is by far the most popular rich snippet these days. This snippet makes it possible for the users to see the author’s name, and author’s Google+ profile picture, the total number of people you have in your circle and also the link to the content that the author has published on his website or anywhere else on the Internet. Content marketing as i have discussed in my previous posts is gradually becoming foundation for Search engine optimisation. Guest posts with links back to your website are the best way to improve rankings.

Below are a some basic steps to create your Google authorship profile for guest posting:

  • Create a Google+ profile. A Google+ profile is actually a requirement for using the Authorship markup. This is how Google recognizes a real user and owner and not another individual with the exact same name.
  • To link back to your Google+ profile from the guest posts make use of the rel=”author” tag. Generally, many website owners require the author to create a contributing author BIO page on their website and include link back to your website there.
  • For most of the blogs that accept guest posts, the author BIO of the guest authors and their Google+ link will show up at the top or bottom of each and every post.
  • Visit your Google+ profile and update the contributor section to add the url of the website or blog where your guest post will be or is published.

After adding the link now you have to Verify it whether or not the connection was successful and you can check it with Google’s Rich Snippet Testing Tool. Just enter the url of your guest post once it is live. The tool will show you whether authorship markup exists and if it’s working properly or not.

If you have followed the instructions carefully this is how your posts will show up in search engine results:

Google Ratings and Reviews Rich Snippet

Another productive way to utilize rich snippets is for user ratings and reviews. The objective of the review rich snippet is to improve appearance of the search engine listing and also to provide users with information regarding particular products or services, for example the star rating — 1 to 5 stars — as well as the name of reviewer(s).

There are several kinds of rich snippet code you can include within the HTML to display different reviews. The easiest, and least complicated to set up is aggregate voting, as shown in the example above. This enables the user to vote for products or services by giving a score, either out of 5 or sometimes 5 or 10.

Link Building For Small Business, Post-Panda/Penguin

There are thousands of articles on Post-Panda/Penguin updates and how these updates have changed the overall SEO strategies.Although the statement is almost accurate because google is cracking down hard on all spammy links generated through softwares. But still they haven’t been 100% successful in getting rid of the spam links and content.

Google will continue to roll out different algorithm updates and they do it almost daily, these updates don’t last for a couple of hours, it takes days and sometimes week to completely roll out the update.

What Types Of Link Building For Small Business Still Works?

Guest Blog Posts:

Guest Posting still works but try to post on sites that are in relevant niches and also thorougly examine the website’s backlinks, it is very crucial that you analyze the backlink pattern otherwise you might end up wasting your time and effort by publishing your post on a website that later gets penalized.

Product/Service Reviews:

Reviews still work wonders but try not to be biased, create a video review and a article with the complete details of the products and the provider along with Pros and Cons. Try to get in touch with people who are already using the products and get their feedback and if they have some concerns try to solve them that’s another good way to get backlinks.

Forum Posting:

I am not talking about profile, forum posting is also a good technique of getting extra backlinks, you can easily find forums realted to the products or services that you are offering and you might even find some threads related to your products.

Inform people about your products and services, offer them support and assistance and try to be active poster on forum but only post useful content, you use signature link to promote your products.

Social Media:

Interact with people on social media sites, see what they have to say about your products and services. encourage them to spread the word, you can use HootSuite for managing social media profiles from one dashboard.

Publish Interviews Of Industry Experts:

Publish interviews of industry experts on your blog by doing this not only you’ll be providing the readers quality content but also people will use the interview and curate content and you will receive a link in return.

Create A Infographic:

Create a unique and informative Infographic, you can hire someone to create a decent inforgraphic for your business. People love to share and re-publish infographics. No one wants to read text, provide them with facts and figures which are easier to digest and fun to read.
