Overview

MSemantic: Semantic SEO for Rich Snippets in Google and Yahoo

MSemantic: Rich Snippets and Semantic SEO with GoodRelations

Hot news: Please see our instructions for proper lastmod attributes in Google sitemaps in the overhauled installation instructions!

This free Magento extension adds rich data-markup to your shop pages so that search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing can display richer item previews in the search results ("Rich Snippets") with information about prices, availability, delivery options, images*, etc. This typically increases Click-Through-Rates (CTR) by up to 30 %.

At the same time, your shop will be more accessible for browser extensions and mobile applications.

For more information about GoodRelations and Semantic SEO, see http://purl.org/goodrelations/

Note: After installing the module, it can take between 2 - 8 weeks until Google will show Rich Snippets for your pages, depending on the general ranking of your site, and other factors.

Important 1: Please submit the URI of your sitemap (e.g. http://www.la-mousson.de/sitemap.xml) to the GoodRelations Notification Service at http://gr-notify.appspot.com. This will help search engines to find and update your products more easily.

Important 2: Please subscribe to our newsletter, where we announce new releases

Important 3: Please see this page for installation notes

Important 4: Please post bug reports, feature request and general usage questions to our Google Group (not in the reviews section)

*not right now, but very likely to be activated soon

MSemantic: Semantic SEO for Rich Snippets in Google and Yahoo 2.9 5 85 85
Dear MSemantic users , a powerful update is out! March 1, 2012
It appears I need to enter EAN codes. We already have an attribute where we have inputted our EAN's, is it possible to have the extension pull from this attribute instead? February 22, 2012
Once again, thank you for releasing this extension for FREE! Unfortunately, it appears the releases in early February didn't completely fix the inventory bug issue - configurable and bundled products are still appearing as out-of-Stock due to Magento's default inventory qty for them being listed as '0', even when all associated products are in stock! While the team will hopefully resolve this bug in a future release, here's a temporary work around for those of you who really need to have this display correctly. We're going live with a new site shortly, and need this correct. In your database, go to the cataloginventory_stock_item table, and browse to the configurable or bundled product desired. Change the 'Qty' field to something positive and it will now show in-stock in rich snippets! Two downsides to this: - You need to do it manually, and isn't practical for large shops - If you mark the product out-of-stock, then in-stock again, the quantity is reset to 0, and you'll need to manually update it again. Hope this helps a few people temporarily until this bug is resolved. February 20, 2012
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. For more information, see http://wiki.goodrelations-vocabulary.org/FFAQ#Why_is_Google_not_showing_rich_snippets_for_my_pages.3F Martin Hepp January 31, 2012
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: URL: http://www.foobar.com/union-jack-half-pint-mug.html Markup Type:shopping Hidden content: <div typeof="gr:Offering" about="#offering">....</div> January 24, 2012
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 1.5.1.0. January 19, 2012
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! January 13, 2012
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 January 7, 2012
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. December 30, 2011
Works great on 1.6.1 as long as you take youderian advice into account when using custom themes. Cheers December 29, 2011

Hello,

the extension didn't work together with BCP - Better configurable products, so I had to uninstall it again. I have uninstalled it with the Magento Connect Manager refreshed the cache and index, and also changed the template files back to the old version.

But I still have in the admin product view a tab named Semantic Web. How can I get rid of this?

Thanks.

Uninstalling

Any solution for the uninstall problem yet? Having the same problem.
Now when i try to install a different Rich Snippets extension (Template-Master) i can't get it to work since it's still conflicting with Msemantic. I also still have the tab "Semantic Web" when adding a product.

I have uninstalled it using Magento Connect, but it doesn't seem to uninstall the whole thing.

Please help.

Regards,

Nick

Hi there,

The add-on works great, love it!
When i activate the add-on and look in Google Structured Data Testing Tool. The results are promising.

I've have i think one small problem.
I;ve got products with custom options. When i active the this addon my custom attributes dissapear.
When i look in my (frontend/*theme*/default/template/catalog/product/) view.phtml

And change the following line
<?php if ($_product->isSaleable() && $this->hasOptions()): ?>
<?php if ($container1_html = $this->getChildChildHtml('container1', '', true, true)): ?>
<div class="container1-wrapper"><?php echo $container1_html; ?></div>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php endif;?>

into:
<?php if ($container1_html = $this->getChildChildHtml('container1', '', true, true)): ?>
<div class="container1-wrapper"><?php echo $container1_html; ?></div>
<?php endif; ?>

(removing 1st if statement).

then my custom attributes are showing. But now i'am seeing 2 times the cart button.

I hope you can help me out. Caus i really love the add-on and would like it to work.

Thanks in advance,

Regards,
Raymond
