Social structured data and rich snippets are powerful tools for attracting extra attention and clicks when your content is shared or appears in search results.
For the uninitiated, social structured data is essentially the annotations that appear when a link is shared across social networks. It gives a summary of the information so the user knows what they’re letting themselves in for.
It’s a topic we’ve covered before in posts looking at the value of rich snippets and how ‘rel=author’ impacts SEO.
