This plugin inserts Rich Snippets into the VirtueMart product detail. Rich Snippets are standardized structured data which can be easily read by other programs. For example Google can read them and show product information like price right under the search result.
Google will display these information on the search result page:
Note, that some information will be there only if you use it. For example stock info will be there only if the product has more than zero products in stock. The count of reviews and ratings will be there only if the product was reviewed and rated.
In the plugin settings you can set the default brand. This information will be displayed when product manufacturer is not set. Google doesn't display this information anyway so you can ignore it.
More important is the configuration of the product price which Google shows. You can define Price Type (e.g. with or without TAX or discount) and also you can set how many decimal points should the price have in Rounding price field. We suggest not to set more then 2 decimal points, because Google will then panic and display it wrong :)
All other information such as name, availability, description, URL, image, currency, rating, reviews and so on are generated automatically.
The plugin will work only if Joomla plugins are allowed in VirtueMart. Go to Components / VirtueMart / Configuration / Shop and there is option "Enable Joomla Plugin" (see the image).
You can test if Rich Snippets Plugin works at Google's Structured Data Testing Tool.
A: Our plugin provides information about the product image, but sadly, Google doesn't display it.

Rich snippets is a great tool for search engine optimization (SEO) because you tell google robots what they are lookign at; in a nice and structured way. It then tells users what is on the page they have Googled and if it is relevant.
Google has Structured Data Testing Tool where you can see how it will be displayed when Google index your web and all information about it. Let's take for example this product - Rich Snippets plugin for VirtueMart.
