Hi Martin,

thanks a lot for the "heads up" ;)

also thanks a lot for the hint with setting up a custom search. I'll  
investigate further search overtime.

re. your given examples:
2 and 3 go somehow in the right direction. However, both are at the  
end very concrete service with a price tag. I was rather looking for  
how to describe rather broad services of a (IT) company, e.g.,  
developing web sites or doing Android app development. Usually, at  
those services you wouldn't put a price tag at your website, but  
simply describe the services themselves (maybe as a responsible person  
at the company, mention some categories + link them to Wikidata  
entities or refer to an intended target audience).

Maybe, I'm also getting the definition of "product or service" at  
schemaorg:service wrong and I need to find another way of how to  
describe. So maybe this use case wasn't really on the roadmap of  
schema.org before (?)

Cheers,


Bo/T
