    Alright guys, I could seriously use some advice or help here.

    I have tried almost every wordpress plugin that will display rich snippets on my site in google as I am ranking on the first page and am attempting to get a higher CTR. None of them work at all after waiting weeks.

    The sites around mine are using rich snippets. I then just copied the code directly from their site and placed it on my page with my own words. Waited 2 weeks and it still will not show! When I check the validation tool on google it shows up but never in the search results?

    Help? What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks guys!

    Are the sites showing rich snippets new ones? I found that mine showed for a few weeks and then disappeared, as did everyone in my niche --- I concluded that the removal was done manually, and maybe the other sites just haven't been "looked at" yet?

    No, neither my site or the ones showing rich snippets are brand new. Yet when I copied his code, mine still will not show.

    Mine weren't working either. Until Google re-crawled my site. Now they're showing up just fine. ;)
