    does anyone else use the shopp plugin? if so, maybe you can help. I think shopp is great but their support leaves a little to be desired and i submitted a support ticket with the issue below… they moved it to the community forum… and i still havent got any help.

    ============================================================

    so the question is, what’s the best way to go about adding microdata to my products?

    Tell me if this makes sense, based on the test product I setup here (http://www.guitarstorage.com/shop/test/), to get the Product Name (Test Product) to be “mircodata’d”, would I go into the /theme/shopp/product.php file and edit line 1 to go from this…


    shopp('catalog')

    to this?

    shopp('catalog')

    And then since my description is typed out in the product editor’s “Summary” field, to add the DESCRIPTION MICRODATA, I would then edit that field to change it from this…

    Blah blah blah

    to this?

    Blah blah blah

    And I have no clue how I determine which product image I want to select to get microdata’d. Any suggestions on that?

    Please advise. Thanks in advance!

    What are you trying to achieve with the micro-data?

    Explain why it’s important.

    I’ve been doing SEO professionally since 1998 (can easily prove it).

    IMHO you’ll get far more benefit from getting back-links than spending time on micro-data.

    At best you “may” get a 3-5% boost from micro-data, while back-links can put you on page-one in a matter of months and keep you there for a long time if done correctly.
