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 Martin,

thanks for the updates.

Given the expanding choices available for shop software supporting
GoodRelations have any comparisons been done to help determine the best
option for a given scenario, e.g. type of store, ease of ongoing
administration, whether it will be a new store or adding GoodRelations
RDFa to an exiting store?

Also be interested in hearing of any in depth GoodRelations workshops or
tutorials happening over the next six months.



> Dear all:
> Thanks for your interest in the GoodRelations vocabulary for e-commerce.
> In the following, I would like to highlight a few recent developments:
> 1. As you likely know, Yahoo and Google are now officially recommending
> the use of GoodRelations in RDFa in order to provide rich site data for
> their index. I also heard rumors that Bing is closely monitoring this
> space, but they refuse to comment on it.
> 2. Bojan Živanović is working on a very powerful GoodRelations extension
> for the Drupal Commerce module; it may become available in a few weeks or
> so. He presented an alpha version at the Drupal Devdays in Brussels:
>    http://bxl2011.drupaldays.org/node/293
> 3. There are powerful, free extensions for
> - Joomla/Virtuemart
> - Wordpress / WP4Ecommerce
> - Magento
> available at
> http://www.ebusiness-unibw.org/wiki/GoodRelations#Shop_Software
> They each have 1000+ downloads already.
> 4. Telling the world of your GoodRelations data
> We are finalizing a new service that you can use to tell us and the world
> of your GoodRelations data / store:
>    http://gr-notify.appspot.com/
> It's not yet officially released, but if you operate a Web shop, please
> submit the URI of your sitemap.xml file to that service, and we will make
> sure that your data gets index by all major semantic services.
> 5. If you are offering cars, boats, bikes for sales or rental, look at the
> respective extension module for GoodRelations:
>    http://purl.org/vso/ns
> 6. If you are offering tickets for events, points of interest, or
> transportation (trains, busses, flights,...) look at the respective
> extension module for GoodRelations:
>    http://purl.org/tio/ns
> Best wishes
