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] GoodRelations entity types hit ranks #3, #20, and #46 in popularity on PingTheSemanticWeb

Dear all:

Since our recent new vocabularies and data sets are now properly 
included, GoodRelations elements are now among the most popular concepts 
on the Web of Data according to PingTheSemanticWeb:

Rank 3:     gr:ProductOrServiceModel
Rank 20:   gr:BusinessEntity
Rank 46:   gr:QualitativeValue

Only the long established FOAF person and document elements are used 
more frequently:

Rank 1:     http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person      19, 002, 417
Rank 2:     http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Document     4, 793, 253

Additional, more powerful datasets are under to be released shortly.

Note that there is a lot of room for additional growth. There are 
actually more than 19 million business entities in Europe alone, which 
are perfect candidates for gr:BusinessEntity, and they will each likely 
have anything between a few and several thousand instances of 
gr:Offering and gr:ProductOrServiceSomeInstacesPlaceholder.
