Default Google Rich Snippets

Hi,

Google is now implementing their Rich Snippets across the world.
http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=99170

This looks like a very neat addition to get more visibility in SERPS: ratings, price, stock or even picture.

Has anyone already implemented it on their site?


Thanks

I'm looking into this as well. I'm waiting to finish my upgrade to 4.4.4 with Phil's new template (still under development) and then I'll start playing around.

I have an informational site using a Google Custom Search that searches not only my x-cart site but my 34 advertisers sites as well. Implementing Google Rich Snippets will help my products stand out.

Thanks for the laugh!

Please see this URL: http://schema.org/Product

I had it working on my site using the default x-cart template and I'm now modifying it to work with Phil's new Ability template and Jon's SEO Category Map mod. Almost all of my products are unique individuals so once sold that product can not be replaced. So, I use my end subcategories as product pages with my products in grid format.

Therefore what I'm doing won't apply to other x-cart sites...

Using the format from the URL above I successfully validated using Google's validation tool. http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets

Hope this helps!

Paul

Commentics is a useful comments script which has rich snippets integrated.

I have provided X-Cart integration instructions here.

I am looking into this at the moment. We would need to add a rating/review system as well to work alongside this. Has anybody got any working sites they don't mind showing for us to get some ideas on the best way to display and handle rich snippets?

Thanks.

Phils Free Commentics, works a treat, a lot of features for the comments too, although I kinda use it as reviews for my site.
