Posted by Prashant on September 16, 2011 in Google

Next time you search on Google for a particular iOS or Android app, you will be able to get the review of the app right inside your search results page. Google has added rich snippets for app stores for iOS, Android and CNET. Google’s Product Manger ‘Alejandro Goyen’ shared on Webmaster blog that “Rich snippets help users determine more quickly if a particular web page has the information they’re interested in.” He further continued writing that “Before you install a software application, users might want to check out what others think about it, and how much it costs. We are pleased to announce that starting today, you’ll be able to get this information right in search results.”
