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] Content Syndication and Affiliate Marketing with GoodRelations

Dear all:
A much frequently discussed scenario for using GoodRelations is to 
include offers / product information related to a given topic into Web 
pages. The gain of GoodRelations over existing techniques is that we can 
apply very precise filters of what items should be shown etc.

Now, with the LESS [1] framework, there is a very nice infrastructure 
available for that. In combination with the public SPARQL endpoints [2] 
maintained by OpenLink Softare, which collate a significant amount of 
real e-commerce data, it was surprisingly easy to generate a dynamic 
template that can be pasted into existing Web pages in seconds.

Of course, the content of that template will be always up-to-date.

Check here for the full example & how-to:


Best wishes
