Microdata / Rich Snippets Addon / Module?

Post by rotem13 » Sun Jan 01, 2012 7:22 am

Hello,

I wonder if there any addon for adding microdata/rich snippets for product pages.
like:
http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ ... 2F97019743
or
http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ ... %252523B1H
or
http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ ... Pittsburgh
this kind of addon can be very useful at Google.

Anyone?

Why would you need an addon, since Google pulls the info directly from your page anyway? Google doesn't even mention needing a script or code of any kind.

of course you need..
you need to add code to the <header> section of each page.. and Google pull he data from there.

Sorry, I don't see anywhere in the links you mentioned where Google provides anything of the sort. If you dig into it, there are examples of how to markup the text, but nothing about any code that goes in the <head> section.

Can you provide a link that illustrates where this can be found?

I understand that there are certain markup tags that you can use to help promote the use of rich snippets, but it's not a 'script' in the way that AdSense is, as an example. So it's not an 'addon' or a 'plugin'. It's just a way of formatting various bits of information.

Some of it could be added into the Site Head section of the AOM control panel, other parts could be used with original content in custom boxes. But it's not a 'thing' you need to plug into your site. It's just a way to format existing information, mainly. You could easily do it right now, it appears.

You are right.
but because all of the product pages has the same format someone can write a script
that will automate that ... like I see people does with mata tags.
Its too much word to do it for each product.. so I thought because rich snippets is very useful
for Google and can easly be automated that someone already create a script for that.
I personally will be ready to pay for such script.
I also think that it can be very powerful feature for associate-o-matic.

I echo this request, it would be nice if you could add rich snippets to product pages.
For example:

Code: Select all

hproduct
availability = In stock
fn = HP Officejet 6000 Wireless Printer
identifier
type = SKU
value = C9295A#B1H
price = 79.99
review hreview-aggregate
item fn = HP Officejet 6000 Wireless Printer
rating
average (normalized to 5.0 scale) = 3.5
average = 3.4
count = 74
This will increase CTR in search engines.

Thanks
