The Article Rich Snippet

With the support of the article data type you are able to enhance your search results with important data such as a star rating, a publisher name and logo, your selected article photo and of course the author name!

The Product Rich Snippet

Promoting a product has progressed a significant step further because now you are able to emphasize on your product's reviews and ratings and a carefully selected product image. We are sure you already know the importance of a good review and rating is for a product's credibility!
