Did you implement your Recipe markup correctly? Is your review microformat being recognized by Google? The best way to find out is to run it through Google’s Rich Snippets Testing Tool.
Rich Snippets Testing Tool Bookmarklet
I used Google’s Rich Snippets Testing Tool heavily as I helped readers diagnose Authorship markup issues. One morning I was reviewing an interesting post by John Doherty about Google Author Search. In his post he provides a handy bookmarklet.
10 minutes half an hour of trial and error had it figured out.
Drag the highlighted link above to your bookmarks bar. Then click the bookmark whenever you want to test a specific page. It will create a new tab with the Rich Snippets Testing Tool (or Structured Data Testing Tool as it’s now called) results.
This makes it ultra-easy to validate any page for rich snippets and has already (in my testing of the bookmarklet) revealed some bugs with the Rich Snippets Testing Tool itself.
Structured Data Testing Tool Bookmarklet
But now there’s a new Structured Data Testing Tool geared toward developers. But why shouldn’t they save clicks too!
Running this will give you a more detailed view of structured data on the page with better error messaging. The geek in you will love it!
You can think of these two as the consumer and developer versions of the same product. You can also find the latter bookmarklet on SEO Skeptic. I strongly encourage you to visit there regardless since it’s a fantastic resource for semantic search.
As always, please let me know if you find this helpful and report any incompatibility issues or bugs you might find with my bookmarklet code.
