Google structured data / rich snippets

Permalink
Hi Team,

I have been looking into the new snippets and structured data that all search engines now seem to be using. I was wondering if their is any plans to incorporate this in with the page attributes and the basic content block?

From what I understand most of this goes in you H1 tags like meta descriptions, but also on you page properties at guess?

I am still looking into how these all seem to work, as I am doing it for a surgeons site which is very complex, with medical codes and all sorts!

ast it seem their are a couple of standards? which one to use best with concretet5?
Microdata (recommended) (so I guess this one?)
Microformats
RDFa

I tried to add the following code using the thml button on a basic content block, but it seems to disappear after saving and can't find it in edit?

would it be possible to add these as properties to a content block where you just set the options?

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/MedicalCondition">
  <h1><span itemprop="name">Stable angina</span>
    (<span itemprop="alternateName">angina pectoris</span>)</h1>
  <span itemprop="code" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/MedicalCode">
    <meta itemprop="code" content="413"/>
    <meta itemprop="codingSystem" content="ICD-9"/>
  </span>
  Stable angina is a medical condition that affects the
  <span itemprop="associatedAnatomy" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/AnatomicalStructure">
    <span itemprop="name">heart</span>
  </span>.
  The most common causes are
  <span itemprop="cause" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/MedicalCause">
    <span itemprop="name">atherosclerosis</span>
  </span>


I was thinking about trying this as a custom block, but not having much luck my self!

Thanks for any advise or update on if its to be added in?

Regards
Carl Lee

Hi Team...

OK I have created a block for this option using your basic_test download block.

Please find attached a copy and running live available at the URL
http://austingraces.com/index.php/body-contouring/arm-reduction-arm...

Now I have a couple of issues I could do with some help with before I publish this on the market place?

1. Every time I change the folder name basic_test to seo_snippets It does not appear in my block list for install any ideas? ( ps. I am new to this so any help welcome?)

2. How do I attach a CSS file to style the add and edit menus?

3. IS it possible to change the text areas into TinyMCE style in the bloks edit add menu?

4. Have I coded this right anyone? I hope so it seems to work?

5. How do I code in the stars/ranking any one?

Check what this does for SEO?
