Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! team up on schema.org

Major search engines, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! have teamed up to help create some standards so webmasters can help better define the information contained on their website’s pages.

Lack of standards, it could be said, has been a problem for some time.

But this new site, supported by the major search engines, gives clear cut information on how to define data/text by adding simple HTML attributes to DIV and SPAN tags.

Definitely worth a look if you’re creating HTML5 sites.

You can find the website here: schema.org

Search result woes when wanting hosting provider reviews on Magento

1

I’ve been looking for a host for a Magento eCom site that I will eventually need to move.

While I can find many hosting companies that seem to offer “Optimized Magento hosting” at attractive prices, I’m having a bit of a struggle finding real reviews.

I’ve found some great info over on the Official Magento Boards, but searching for content on blogs or reviews, in my first hour, I’m coming up quite blank. The forums on the Magento site are probably the way to go. I needed some support before on a plugin we used for shipping and got a great response.

Most of my frustration here is due to the fact that there seems to be so many “ghost” sites out there that are tweeked for SEO for these search terms…. and mostly serve up very general info and tons of adds….

Maybe it’s something that I’ll blog about on here. The hosting provider we go with and what the experience is.
