Rich Snippets in Google, getting the most out of it

Images in Rich Snippets sometimes seem elusive: you have set it up correctly right? Why isn’t Google showing the image you prepared with so much care!

Sometimes it’s just as simple as ratio’s or pixel count. Google prefers images of at least 50K pixels, and prefers the image in three different ratio’s: 1×1, 4×3 and 16×9. See for more information on Google’s preferences this article.

To give a user full control over the snippet images, I’ve added a new tab in the recipe editor, which allows a user to manage the images manually. This is not necessary! Zip Recipes will automatically generate the required images in the correct ratio’s and pixel size. If you image quality is too low, you will see a warning about this.

This feature takes the guesswork out of the rich snippets, and is now part of both free and premium versions of Zip Recipes.

 

 

F.A.Q.

If your license is activated, you should be able to update from the WordPress plugins dashboard. If this doesn’t work, there’s probably a configuration issue on your server. We’ve listed several of the most common causes.

Sure! Just go to your account, then click “view licenses”, then “view upgrade”. There you have options to pay the additional amount.

The download link you received in the initial e-mail is valid for 24 hours. After the link has expired you can log in to your ZIP Recipes account to download the plugin again. When logged in to your account you will see a section “your purchases”. 

Clicking on the ‘View Details and Downloads’ button will take you to a new page. On this new page scroll down to locate the ‘Products’ section. In the products section you can click on the plugin hyperlink to download the plugin.

To install the plugin, you can follow these instructions on Really Simple SSL

When getting a ‘this email is not authorized to renew license’ error, try clearing cookies from your browser. That will likely solve the issue.

If you click the download link after you have purchased a plugin, you should download a zipped file which you can upload to WordPress. If this is not the case, you are probably using Safari. This is easy to fix. Go to:

Safari > Preferences > General > Open “safe” files after downloading: uncheck.
