Dear all:

sears.com and kmart.com, together the the third largest discount store chain in the world, have just turned on GoodRelations support in RDFa! This complements the already impressive list of major adopters of GoodRelations semantic SEO technology, following BestBuy, overstock.com, and CSN stores!

a) sears.com - ca. 15 Million items (ca. 0.5 billion triples)
Example: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_07180844000P
Sitemap: http://www.sears.com/Sitemap_Index.xml

b) kmart.com - ca. 250,000 items
Example: http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_024W434912980001P?prdNo=1&blockNo=1&blockType=G1
Sitemap: http://www.kmart.com/Sitemap_Index.xml

Plus, sears.com also uses www.productontology.org classes for describing the items.

This is a great move in terms of leading edge use of Semantic Web technology for e-commerce.

Best wishes

Martin Hepp
