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] Magento & GoodRelations - Please update!

Dear all:

If you are running a Magento store and use the MSemantic extension for generating GoodRelations markup (for Rich Snippets etc.), then please update to the most recent version.

This is currently the release "2011-11-24 03:09:45", which you can obtain freely from


Only this version is compatible with the newest Google requirements.

From our Web crawls, we see a lot of shops still using very outdated versions of MSemantic, which will not provide the markup needed for Google.

Note: After installing / updating the module, it can take between 2 - 8 weeks until Google will show Rich Snippets for your pages, depending on the general ranking of your site, and other factors.

So do it now ;-)

And please spread the word to anybody running a Magento store. MSemantic is the easiest, cheapest, and most powerful way to add GoodRelations and RDFa to your store, both for Google Rich Snippets and for Semantic SEO in general. Kudos to Uwe Stoll for developing and maintaining this important initiative.

Best wishes
