Arrow Rich Google Search Results module released

Hello, X-Carters!

I am glad to announce release of Rich Google Search Results module

http://www.x-cart.com/sites/default/files/modules/rich_google_search_180x180.png

Rich snippet is a way to get more potential customers from Google search results pages. It's said that the usage of this technique might boost your websites click-through ratios up to 30%!

It's a known fact that if customers see informative and eye-catching information from the page, they are more likely to click through. Compare these two snippets:

Usual Google search results:

Impact of Rich Google Search results module on the search result:

If your results are more attractive for visitors, they are more likely to click through your links. Consequently it may improve your rankings.

The key changes in appearance are:

http://www.x-cart.com/sites/all/themes/xcartcom/images/checkmark.png Path to your store page is displayed as a chain of breadcrumbs instead of a simple URL

http://www.x-cart.com/sites/all/themes/xcartcom/images/checkmark.png Product price is shown directly at the search results page

http://www.x-cart.com/sites/all/themes/xcartcom/images/checkmark.png If your product has any options or variants that modify the product's price, it will be shown as a range of the prices

http://www.x-cart.com/sites/all/themes/xcartcom/images/checkmark.png Customer star rating is shown directly on the search results page

http://www.x-cart.com/sites/all/themes/xcartcom/images/checkmark.png Indicates whether reviews are available for the product

http://www.x-cart.com/sites/all/themes/xcartcom/images/checkmark.png Indicates whether the product is in stock


Rich Google Search Results add-on can be purchased on our official website

Thank you for purchasing it, much appreciated! Yes it was out a bit earlier, but I had no time to announce it till today, unfortunately.

Thank you very much. Here are answers to your questions:

1. This module is not included into GoldPlus edition. However, it can be purchased separately and easily installed into X-Cart GoldPlus

2. It works with Advanced Customer Reviews if it's installed and enabled. Otherwise, it uses the built-in Customer Reviews module.

P.S.: some more useful information in our online manual for this module:

Hi Rocky, Can you provide either here or in the manual tips for using in 3rd party templates. I can hunt around in an x-cart template and find what I need but it would save me time and be helpful to others. Thanks! Paul

Thanks for the suggestion!

We will add it to KB soon, but anyway the basic instruction on patching 3rd party skins is:
1) Take all patches from the x-rich-gsearch-results.patches/skin/common_files/ directory.
2) Apply these patches to 3rd party templates as closely as possible.

Please, let us know if it helps.

Hi Tony!

Thank you very much for your suggestions. I'm leaving on vacation for a week and hopefully the upgrade pack for 4.5.3 will be available when I return. I'll report back when I've installed and successful.
Have a great day! Paul

Hi,

I purchased this mod and have installed it. Using Google's Structured Data Testing Tool I can see that all the expected attributes are being picked up from my product pages except the rating is not being displayed. Review comments are being displayed but not the rating out of 5 stars.

Does this mod display ratings for everyone else? If so can anyone suggest what I look at to correct it?
