Bing and GoodRelations

This question is answered

Yahoo was the first to adopt the GoodRelations semantic vocabulary using Search Monkey. Recently Google began accepting GoodRelations semantic markup for showing snippets of data in the SERP's. If I were to use GoodRelations on my site, would Bing be able to use the markup vocabulary? Or, is there another semantic language Bing prefers?

  • Jimmybob,

    Bing currently does not support GoodRelations.  Thank you for bringing this to our attention though.  I will provide this information to the Bing team as a suggested feature for improvements in the future.

  • I only have seen such feature for Bign shopping reustls. Maybe Bing offers such ability but i don't know.

    I am going to explain Google GoodRelations semantic markup. It means that anyone who has a web page with information about a product or service can add a releatively small amount of markup to existing HTML, and have semantic information that both Google and other semantic applications will be able to process.  There is some evidence that doing this has an inherent SEO benefit as well as an improved display of the information in Google search results.

    For example :

    A Results Without GoodRelations will be appeared like:

  • Thanks for the reply Bryaden.

    I understand how GoodRelations works, but what I want to do is use a markup that is Bing approved. To do this I need to know out if there's a semantic vocabulary recognized by Bing.
