Rich snippets are a way to provide additional information about a webpage to search engines, like Google, so that they can better understand the content and context of the page. This information can then be displayed in search engine results, making it easier for users to understand what the page is about and whether it’s relevant to their search query.
Think of rich snippets as a special kind of metadata that gives search engines a sneak peek at what’s on your webpage.
For example, if you have a recipe website, you could use rich snippets to provide information about the ingredients, cooking time, and nutritional value of each recipe. This way, when someone searches for a specific recipe, the search engine can display all this extra information in the search results, making it easier for the user to decide if your recipe is the one they’re looking for.
We have built Elegant to automatically add the most essential rich snippets to your web pages.
We have included the logo of your Elegant application in the rich snippets markup to specify the image Google Search uses for your organization’s logo in Search results and in the Google Knowledge panel using rich snippets.
Google Search uses the schema.org markup to recognize the image to use as the organization’s logo. This ensures that, when possible, the image appears in search results about the company. Markup like this is a strong signal to Google Search algorithms to show this image in knowledge panels.
We have set the default page schema to
Organization to signal to search engines that your website is for a company.
You can change it to a personal website by simply updating the
NEXT_PUBLIC_APP_TYPE environment variable to
Person in your .env file.
We will automatically add your social profile URLs to the rich snippet data included on all pages of your web application.
URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item’s identity. E.g. the URL of the item’s Wikipedia page, Wikidata entry, or official website.
Simply include your social handles in their corresponding .env environment variables.

Google Search is an entry point for people to discover and watch videos.
While Google tries to automatically understand details about your video, Elegant automatically provides information, such as the description, thumbnail URL, upload date, and duration, by marking up your video with
VideoObject. Videos can appear in Google Search results, video search results, Google Images, and Google Discover.
Elegant automatically includes the
Article rich snippet tag in all of your blog posts.
Article structured data to your news, blog, and sports article pages can help Google understand more about the web page and show better title text, images, and date information for the article in search results on Google Search and other properties (for example, Google News and the Google Assistant).
