Google Adds Document On Rich Snippet Missing Questions

Aug 22, 2011 • 8:13 am | comments (12) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

One of the biggest issues with Google's rich snippets feature is that even if you do code it properly, you have no idea if it will show up or not. So Google added a new document named rich snippets not appearing and answered a bunch of questions.

So when you are like me, and you are wondering why the rich snippet testing tool shows your snippets properly but they do not show up in the search results - maybe, just maybe this will help?

My rich snippet shows in the testing tool:

But even months later, it still does not show up in the search results:

rich snippet missing

Is this helpful to you at all?

Both Googlers Pierre Far and John Mueller posted these details on their profiles.

JohnMu's post is getting the most Q&A back and forth on the topic.
