Schema for Retail: Enabling Rich Snippets for Products #SEO #guano

SEO Guano
If you're a merchant, you can give Google detailed product information that we can use to display rich snippets (for example, price, availability, and review ratings) right on our search results pages.
Using markup to enable rich snippets lets you:
  • Attract potential buyers while they are searching for items to buy on Google.
  • Control your product information. You can maintain the accuracy and freshness of your product information, so your customers find the relevant, current items they're looking for.

Google Now relies on structured data compatible with in emails to work. This lets Google understand the fields in your email and construct a Google Now card with the relevant information for the recipient. Only some card types are supported by Google Now.
Schemas in Gmail support both JSON-LD and Microdata and you can use either of them to markup an email. There are two ways of adding semantic markup to your email - you can author the markup yourself or use the Markup Helper to get you started by adding markup to an existing email.
