A set of new templates for Google Custom Search Engine is launched today that take advantage of rich snippets markup to provide customized results layouts for specific structured data, announced Google.

"Templates that we now support include: People, Product, Recipe, Organization, Review and Review Aggregate," Google stated.

"Your markup can enhance the display of structured information in addition to enabling the powerful metadata features, such as Sort by Attribute and Restrict to Range that we released last year. For example, there's a Review template that will show ratings and expand on-demand to display reviews within a result as shown in the screenshot below," Google explained:

This specific treatment is used when you use hreview and hreview-aggregate Microformat markup on your pages. Template rendering changes are automatic if you use the Element.

Try these out at demo search site. For more information on markup that you can use for Google.com and Custom Search, please refer to documentation.
