Breaking News: GoodRelations data now shows up in Yahoo!

Dear all:

I can report on the first confirmed page with GoodRelations + RDFa rich
meta-data that shows up in Yahoo with additional details:

URI: http://tr.im/yahooproduct2

Screenshot attached. The price of $ 34.99 comes directly from the RDFa
markup, as described in the recipe at

http://www.ebusiness-unibw.org/wiki/GoodRelations_and_Yahoo_SearchMonkey

Thanks to Peter Mika, Evan Goer, and Kevin Haas for their hard work in
fine-tuning the parsing & processing. Theoretically, there should also
be the product image next to the search result; we are currently working
on fixing that, too.

But the good news is: There is now a crystal-clear, easy-to-communicate
incentive for any webmaster in the world to add price and product
descriptions using GoodRelations in RDFa to all pages.

Please spread the word!

Best wishes

Martin
