Want to have your website link covering the largest real estate on the Google search page? Then consider rich snippets. Rich snippets are ways of tagging blocks of information so that search engines can classify and ultimately find the information faster. For example, an article would be tagged with the “article” property, a name tagged with the “name” property, and so on.
This information can be added to every part of your website through code. This may be great for some, but most will probably want to take advantage of the free WordPress plugin that adds rich snippet capability to posts & pages.
