Let's first define what microformats are..So microformats are tiny or small groups or patterns of HTML that usually serves as publisher about the things around the world like events, people, reviews and tags in web pages, and blog posts. In Addition, microformats are the fastest and simplest method ofr way to provide pieces of information on our website.


Please note the difference between the two examples below that i myself discovered. One has microformats, and the other doesn’t. Which one do you think is more benefecial or useful? and which one are you going to click?

Take note the difference between the one with microformats and the other withou microformats.
