MSemantic: Semantic SEO for Rich Snippets in Google and Yahoo
By the way: Once you have added GoodRelations to your site, make sure that you regenerate your sitemap, because Google will only take notice of the additional markup if the lastmod attribute of the article detail page has been updated. Otherwise, it may take a long time for Google to show rich snippets for your page.

Not sure Google accepts this anymore. We added this module, told google that we were using it and the GoodRelations markup and got the following decline today:
Thank you for your interest in rich snippets for your website. Unfortunately, we can’t display rich snippets for your site foobar.com because of the following issue(s):
1. HIDDEN MARKUPS
Your content is marked up for rich snippets. But all the values has been marked up under the content attribute. We allow the use of content attribute only when we need values in the machine readable format such as for currency. Please markup the actual content on the webpage.
Here’s an example of the hidden content we found on your site:
Hidden content: <div typeof="gr:Offering" about="#offering">....</div>

Really great Extension, thank you very much! The only thing we had to fix is the stock info. In our shop we turned of the stock feature, the module then shows "out of stock".
Used it in Magento Community Edition 220.127.116.11.

The module seems to display all Configurable Products as "Out of Stock" when displaying in rich snippet mode. Can you recommend a solution for this? Thank you!

I agree nice work... But i found also an error: If you have in your catalog only net prices, you don't have any chance to show price with vat included in the sniplets...
"gr:hasCurrencyValue" => round($this->Product->getFinalPrice(1)*MULTIPLIEDWITHVAT, 2), // 1 unit

First at all - Nice work. Just some observations. For the EAN code there should be a mechanism to link the field to an existing product attribute rather than maintaining it separate. Google product search already requires that on going forward it will probably be used somewhere else as well and should only be kept/maintained in one place. There also should be some flexibly about the stock status. If you have a life feed and a product goes out of stock and a few minutes later that page gets index the status will be out of stock and could be for quite a long time (worst case for ever) in the SERP's depending on the frequency the site/page get crawled.

Works great on 1.6.1 as long as you take youderian advice into account when using custom themes.

Thank you for writing this extension!
Installation seemed to go smoothly on Magento 1.6.1, but I can't find any mark-up in the HTML. Also, when run through Google's Rendering tool for rich snippets, it says none is present.
Apart from installing and enabling the extension, is there anything else I need to do? I HAVE made minor adjustments to the modern theme, but I'm not sure if this is a problem or not.

First of all thanks a lot for this extension...
I Installed it easily via SSH on 1.5.1.
Checked in google rich snippet test tool and It seems to work well on product pages with title, price & reviews, but the product image is not showing up. I tested on multiple products and image is not showing up on all of them in google rich snippet test tool.
Also it doesnt generate any code for category pages, like breadcrumbs or anything, I dont know, is it supposed to be this way ?
The little problem I have is related with configuration, I use 12 number UPC code on my store and this option is not given in "strong identifier type", can you tell me please which one should I use in this case?
P.S. it will work even without submitting the sitemap.xml to the good relations website, right?

Installs a charm on 18.104.22.168 but notice it doesn't seem to take notice of the currency change? hasCurrency value changes, but hasCurrencyValue stays at the default.
Otherwise, works fine!
