Today, I am going to reveal some news and give you the very first sneak peek of the new WordPress plugin I am working on, which will be
added to the AuthorhReview.com‘s package (Now, it has its own domain name WPRichSnippets.com). The WordPress Rich Snippets plugin will be release in a few days, so get ready for a whole new markup experience.
This plugin will help you add different types of schema markups to your WordPress website, which tells more details about your site to search engines like Google.
The new Rating Box
Many changes and enhancements has been made to the Rating Box in the new plugin regarding to both; the way it looks and also the way it works. The new box now can handle more details about the reviewed item.

In the new plugin; I’ve made big changes to the way user reviews are presented, and also to how it actually marked up, which will make a big difference. In the WP Rich Snippets plugin, user reviews shows in an additional tab, can be sorted and it’s all schema marked.
Different Types of Schema
The WP Rich Snippets plugin introducing different types of schema that you can chose from, at this point the plugin contains markups for individual and aggregate reviews, and serving Products, Organizations and Restaurants schema markups.

Being making plugins for marking up websites in the last couple of years, I’ve focused -in this plugin- on two main things, ease of use and great functionality. So practically, this plugin will help many types of websites that runs on WordPress in different niches.
P.S. I will be working on updating the website this weekend to get it ready for the new plugin release, so stay tuned!
