I recently noticed that rich snippet text seems to have disappeared from search results, both in Google and Bing.
Let me be more precise. I'm referring to the information that used to appear in the left-hand sidebar of the SERPs when you searched for certain types of information. My particular interest is in recipes. When you searched for a recipe, the sidebar would show controls for selecting the preparation time, cooking time, calorie count, and various other criteria, plus including or excluding specific ingredients. The searcher could use those controls to filter the results (including out-filtering any hits that aren't in fact recipes).
It's that feature which seems to have disappeared (as far as I can see).
Maybe it doesn't matter. Perhaps nobody ever used it (I certainly didn't). But it's a bit annoying, given that, a couple of years ago, I spent a long day coding my own sites to with the required microformats, all to no good purpose.
This is not really a question. But any comments would be appreciated.
