How to know installation is ok.


1. See above

2. Test the product page with Google Structured Data Testing Tool

http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets

if it doesn't display snippets then the module is installed incorrectly

Default Re: Rich Google Search Results module released

Some of my products display reviews and pricing in search. Some do not. It also depends on the search phrase...

Data point: Google knows your IP. Repeated searches from same IP may deliver results that are VERY different from another IP. Google also "knows" you. If it determines you are male, it may not display products targeted to women, etc... NOT just adwords.

It is difficult to test this as a "real" customer because google knows way too much about your browsing history and tries to serve content FOR you. In this case, google, please don't do me any favors, ok?

The module works. For those who think it doesn't you can implement the required changes yourself directly from the Google Rich Snippets pages - it is explained how in details.
The fact of the matter is - Google offers many services which may or may not help merchants and/or customers but at the end it is Google's decision whether to grand access (show results) to these services for any particular merchant/customer. It is not the module or developer's decision - it is Google decisions after you are compliant with their requirements. You may be 110% compliant and Google may never show your pages this way...

As others said - Google knows about you more than you do and for good or bad modifies what you see based on what they know (or thing they know) about you...

Is the module making W3C compliant code?
I messed with W3C validation last week and the RGSR code tossed errors.

Quote:
Line 148, Column 41: "itemscope" is not a member of a group specified for any attribute
<div id="page-holder" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product">

Error Line 148, Column 50: there is no attribute "itemtype"
<div id="page-holder" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product">

You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document type you are using does not support that attribute for this element. This error is often caused by incorrect use of the "Strict" document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the "Transitional" document type to get the "target" attribute), or by using vendor proprietary extensions such as "marginheight" (this is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect instead).

This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no supported attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error message for further information.

How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute, (Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or check that they are both allowed in the chosen document type, and/or use CSS instead of this attribute. If you received this error when using the <embed> element to incorporate flash media in a Web page, see the FAQ item on valid flash.

My doctype is: Doctype: XHTML 1.0 Transitional

Hmm... ???

This doesn't matter and will not cause improper page rendering. Many meta tags or attributes will show like this since the validator first doesn't know about them and second they are not part of the XHTML 1.0 Transitional spects. As long as you know you did not make a mistake you can safely ignore these

Hi Alexander,
In my case there is no error showing in google rich snippets testing tools. I have around 12000 products & google rich snippets just shows 2868 products in the list !
->markup is valid. This confirmed by google rich snippets team also.
-> products page ranking is good..for many products my site results is at #1 place in google search results
-> I have checked all products which has got rating & reviews but none of them is showing rich snippets !

Also this list products crawled is decreasing every week !

I am in touch with Danila Struchkov regarding this issue but not getting any clue for this issue.

So that means even if everything is setup correctly it's depends upon google's decision to show your site or not.

I guess you are using schema properties defined within page instead in meta tags. W3C will show you error but according my experience google like this way. You can simply ignore W3C validation error as it will not going to affect page ranking & yes such warning are because of XHTML 1.0 Transitional as Microdata (that implements Rich snippet) are a part of HTML5 specification which is not supported by XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

In brief, it is better to leave these warnings, because they do not affect either the appearance of your pages or your SEO:
