GoodRelations - The Web Vocabulary for E-Commerce

This is the archive of the goodrelations dicussion list

GoodRelations is a standardized vocabulary for product, price, and company data that can (1) be embedded into existing static and dynamic Web pages and that (2) can be processed by other computers. This increases the visibility of your products and services in the latest generation of search engines, recommender systems, and other novel applications.

[goodrelations] Google, RDFa, and the Semantic Web

Dear all:

I just I just published a description of how site owners would 
frequently use GoodRelations, at


and asked Google to check that the proposed recipes are compliant with 
all Google
content policies, i.e., that the patterns will not result in any 
decreased ranking or exclusion from the index.

The files

    * http://www.heppnetz.de/rdfa4google/company.html
    * http://www.heppnetz.de/rdfa4google/company-tool.html
    * http://www.heppnetz.de/rdfa4google/product.html

are all fully W3C compliant and should thus also be fine for Google, in
my opinion.

Note that the pattern used for


is particularly important for tools that generate RDFa mark-up for 
simple copy-and-paste.

I will forward any response from Google to this list asap.

Best wishes
