Rich Snippets Spam

What is Rich Snippets Spam?

Rich Snippets Spam refers to the practice of using manipulative or deceptive methods in structured data to create misleading rich snippets.

While rich snippets can enhance the visibility of a webpage in search results and provide useful information to users, they can also be misused.

Some websites may attempt to game the system by incorporating misleading or false information in their structured data to generate enhanced snippets.

For instance, a website might include false review ratings or irrelevant details in its markup to improve its visibility in search results. This is considered spam according to Google's guidelines.

If Google detects that a site is using this kind of spammy structured data markup, it can result in a manual action against the site, where the site may be penalized.
