Do you want to remove price and stock information from Google searches? E-commerce has had a significant impact on our shopping habits. Instead, we can search for our desired product on Google and order it from a plethora of stores online. Platforms such as WooCommerce have allowed everyone to create an online store and sell their products to customers all over the world. With this rise in online stores, search engines like Google also decided to up their game to provide their users with the best matching results. With the user intent in mind, Google has introduced rich snippets. Rich snippets, also known as rich results, are highlighted search results that include valuable details such as reviews, price, list, tables, and so on.
What Is Schema Markup? How Does It Help You Get Rich Snippets In WordPress?
Search features, such as rich snippets and featured snippets, draw attention of Google users away from the plain old links. One way to get rich snippets is through structured data — or schema. This is markup that can be added to a website to help search engines provide more detailed results for users, appearing in the form of a rich snippet. Google loves rich snippets — and so do users — especially on the search results for recipes and products. Marking up your content with structured data can be a great way to beef up how machines can read your page. Many assume that because they added the code to the website, Google will automatically begin to feature rich snippets.

This is how search engines rank specific pages within its search results.
