Hi,

I purchased this mod and trying to install.

I'm having hard time with 'patching 3rd party skin' part of the installation guide (at http://help.x-cart.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:Rich_Google_Search_Results).

I am using Phil's Smart Template. Is there any patch instruction for this template?

Thanks in advance.

Status report on this mod, pelase?

Is everyone happy with the results?
Are you seeing better metrics and conversion with vs. without?
Has Google picked up the advanced customer reviews stars?
If anyone has this successfully operational, please PM me with product names that I can search for. I promise I won't blow your site's metrics and I won't click through.

3 Questions for Alexander and/or Tony:

1. if I install this into 4.5.4 gold plus, what is your upgrade policy for future x-cart versions (i.e. will the 4.5.5 upgrade include patches for this mod and do you test for compatibility going forward?)

2. Also, what does this mod do to site performance? Does this make a feed that is uploaded to Google, or does Goog have to find the snippets and then index it?

3. Are there circumstances where Google does not display the rich code? Or conversely, can you guarantee that Google will display the star ratings and price of my products in the results?

I like the "idea" of the star ratings and price delivered to Google. But it has to work. Sell me.

@ carpeperdiem: Personal comment on this
I have this for a long time now but not the QT mod - I coded this myself into my stores to correct places where the code belongs. There is no feed to submit - SE will find the tags and it's up to them to index it or not. I don't think this feature is aimed at better sells or conversion - it is to make it easier for customers to see product info in search results as well as ratings instead of going to merchant page... so easy to compare search result right there on that same page.

This doesn't affect site performance - it is simple info included in the html source - it is already available on the product page in XC anyway.

There is no quarantee that SE will display these tags or on which products will display them. This is up to SE to decide. As long as you have them and they are properly formatted - SE will index them at some point.

I have installed this mod on couple carts, I have coded my own on others... both ways work and both ways end up showing the info needed in proper format. I don't think you will make a mistake buying the mod - it will do what it's supposed to do I think. As for licensing and other techinical info - not my place to answer that

Thanks for this, Steve.

As a coder, if you can roll your own, what benefit does the site developer have with this mod vs. having you just code it? Is it really more than a hour of work? I guess so...

I've received a few "just do it" PMs.

This mod will install on unmodified stock skin out of the box so easy to install. If you have 3rd party skin or very customized stock skin then all changes has to be manually applied. I can't say that one way is better than the other - I made my changes directly in the template files as needed; the QT mod has the these changes in separate templte files and refrences them in the templates they apply...
