Google Rich Snippets

Google Rich Snippets

Product rich snippets is to provide users with additional information about a specific product, such as the product’s price and reviewer(s) ratings and commentary.

  • Attract potential buyers while they are searching for items to buy on Google.
  • Submit your product listings for free.
  • Control your product information. You can maintain the accuracy and freshness of your product information, so your customers find the relevant, current items they’re looking for.

This is the adaptation of the popular extension “@tik” Google rich snippets 

Installation

To add rich snippets to your site:

1) Download the original extension http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=6485

2) Upload only the first file z-google-rich-snippets-1.xml to your server

3) Unzip and upload the file for your theme:

z-google-rich-snippets-2_Fortuna.xml version 1.2+

z-google-rich-snippets-2_Sellegance.xml version 1.4.3+

That’s all you need.

    where do I install the z-google-rich-snippets-2_Sellegance.xml file??
    not working at http://store.obibw.com

    • Hi. The xml files must be uploaded to the folder vqmod/xml/ on your server. You need to 2 rich snippets files included in the Additional Extensions folder.

  • Hey, for the fortuna one, it doesn’t display category > subcategory on product pages.. the rest of it works, just not the categories…

    • Hi Luke,

      Sorry for my late reply. Do you mean the breadcrumb only shows the product name? That’s the way the SEO works on OpenCart by default.

      To show the entire path you need to use a extension. It’s a limitation of the built in SEO feature.

      • That is what I meant yeah, and thank you for your help!

    • Hi Martin,

      What’s your URL? You can send me a message using my contact form http://themeforest.net/user/luisvelaz#contact

      Did you use the rich snippets files from the theme package? The most recent versions are included in the theme files.

      I’ll wait for your message to check what’s happening.

      Happy Holidays!
