What are Rich Snippets?
Rich Snippets are micro-data that help search engines to understand & rank your post in search results in a better way. In simple words, it is the small piece of excerpt, author name, author rating(if available) that appear below the search results in search engines like Google.
This is how it looks in search results of search engines like Google, Bing, etc.

Note: The inclusion of rich snippets purely depends on the search engine i.e., adding micro-data doesn’t ensures its inclusion in search results.
