Updates to rich snippets

Monday, April 16, 2012

Today we're announcing two updates to rich snippets. First, we're happy to announce that product rich snippets, which previously were only available in a limited set of locales, are supported globally. Users viewing your site's results in Google search can now preview information about products available on your website, regardless of where they're searching from. Here's an example of a product rich snippet:

Second, we've updated the rich snippets testing tool to support HTML input. We heard from many users that they wanted to be able to test their HTML source without having to publish it to a web page. This is now supported by the tool, as shown below.
