Make Your Products 'POP!' On Social Media & SERPs with Microdata! Get More Visits from Social Media when Someone Shares Your Products The biggest validation for your store is when a customer shares your products on social media. What they’re saying is: “Hey, I had a great experience buying from these guys. I want you guys to check it out as well.” However, most online stores end up wasting these opportunities.

Microdata You are here: Home Dive Into HTML5 Diving In There are over 100 elements in HTML5.

Meaningful Markup: POSH and Beyond Back in 1998, I was working as a Marketing Coordinator for an accounting firm. I was responsible for designing and writing content for our client newsletters, amongst a myriad of other print-focused activities. One day, my boss asked me to take a look at our corporate web site and rework the content.

Example use cases: An element whose content is completely presentational (like a spacer image, decorative graphic, or clearing element);An image that is in a container with the img role and where the full text alternative is available and is marked up with aria-labelledby and (if needed) aria-describedby;An element used as an additional markup "hook" for CSS; orA layout table and/or any of its associated rows, cells, etc. For example, according to an accessibility API, the following markup elements would appear to have identical role semantics (no role) and identical content.

About microdata - Webmaster Tools Help The HTML5 microdata specification is a way to label content to describe a specific type of information—for example, reviews, person information, or events. Each information type describes a specific type of item, such as a person, and event, or a review. For example, an event has the properties venue, starting time, name, and category.

The goals are to further understand the way in which semantics are currently added to today’s web, either “formally” (through the use of “semantic” HTML, or microformats) or less formally, though the use of commonly used design patterns. In this article, I focus a little on precisely what the term “semantics” means, and then turn my attention to the nature of the “built in” semantics in HTML.

For this reason the Council conclusions invite the introduction of a European Legislation Identifier (ELI) on a voluntary basis. ELI enables simple and fast access to this information by providing a unique identifier which is recognizable, readable and understandable by both humans and computers: "The process of cooperation within the European Union has increased the need to identify and exchange legal information originating from regional and national authorities at the European level.
