Dear all:

Great news: ANY site owner in the world has now a clear incentive to add 
GoodRelations meta-data in RDFa to his/her page:

As of now, Yahoo will display price and offering details and other
meta-data of any e-commerce Web page if the site owner uses 
GoodRelations vocabulary elements.

Previously, such data was only used within special applications
developed in the Yahoo ecosystem. Now, every site owner can add
meta-data to enhance the search results of offers in Yahoo.

Just go to

http://developer.search.yahoo.com/help/objects/product

and click on the tab "RDFa - GoodRelation".

The tool generates mark-up patterns for copy-and paste into xhtml page 
content.

Thanks to Peter Mika and everybody at Yahoo for this initiative! It will
for sure help lower the entrance barrier for any business to use
Semantic Web technology in general and GoodRelations in particular.

Best wishes
