Rich snippets are a type of on page mark-up. They are the extra bits of text that appear under search results. Think of them like bacon bits for search engines. That extra pop of flavor that differentiates you from the plain old potato next to you. Are they necessary? That depends. Do you want your listing to stand out? If so, rich snippets are a great way to get your content noticed!

As a fan of bacon, I like your statement: " Think of them like bacon bits for search engines." I am getting hungry now! :p

Do you think that the rich snippets will automatically be included in the content creation someday in the future, instead of manually adding code?
