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.

Hi Nicolas,

we are building one ;-) In the meantime, you can use



But I must war you - you are just a few weeks to early. We are 
fine-tuning large datasets right now, which will include > 1 Mio 
instances. This will take, however, a couple of weeks from now.

So don't be disappointed if as of today, sindice shows just some twenty 
businesses. Also, their crawling is incomplete.


PS: And yes, please create a description for your own business using the 
annotator tool - five minutes to mark your claims in the Web of Data ;-)
