Google: No Snippets For You...

no soup for you gifA Google Webmaster Help thread has one webmaster upset Google is not picking up his markup and showing rich snippets for his site in Google's search results.

Google's Zineb responded that Google doesn't show rich snippets for all sites, even if there are markup on the page. Back in December, Google reduced the rich snippets displayed in the search results significantly. So you shouldn't be surprised if rich snippets do not show for your site, in fact, you should be surprised if they do show.

To lay it on even worse, Zineb from Google told the webmaster they have "some quality issues on your site." Tisk tisk.

Someone needs to make an animated GIF of Matt Cutts saying "No Snippets For You!"

GWT claims that none of my pages have markup detected, yet thousands of my products show ratings... I think Google's code is still a little buggy. If you have markup then manually check the SERPs for it. Don't trust GWT at the moment.

It's a crapshoot. I've got rich snippets on results from my newer and smaller sites, but they disappeared about a year ago from results for my largest, most authoritative, and consistently highest-ranking site. Google Authorship is a work in progress (a.k.a. a public beta), so what you see today may be different from what you see six months or a year from now.

If Google would not show the rich snippets for all site, why did they ask for it in the first place?
