  • Volusion includes microdata

    I am still wrestling with microdata for condition. 3d cart has told me that ithis is a google webmaster issue and i can contact the sale dept for help. I have not done that but from last inquiries about other isues, it is probably expensive. Here's what volusion provides its customers

    What do you all think?

    Volusion does have some nice features, but I will stay with 3DCart and trust that they will get us covered for Google requirements.

      I also much prefer 3dcart, however it is nice how Volusion breaks it down and shows exactly how it is broken down. Maybe 3dcart will get the hint.

        I hope that they will do that too.

          This is definitely not a Google issue. 3dcart does not provide condition microdata in their product page templates. I'm surprised 3dcart Support didn't hit you up for their Design Services or SEO Services to add it for you.

          Davef if all your products are new, as you stated in this thread, then make the following edit to your HTML:

          Search for:
          itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Offer"

          Which will likely be contained int a <div>, so it will be some variation of this:
          <div class="extra_field" itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Offer">

          It doesn't matter what else is contained in the <div>, only that it includes the term 'itemscope' and that 'itemtype' (Technically, it could also be "Product," but from what I've seen 3dcart is using "Offer."). Directly underneath that, add the following code:
          <link itemprop="itemCondition" href="http://schema.org/NewCondition" />

          Which will tell anything reading your microdata (web spiders for example) that the condition of the item is "New." If you decide later that you want to offer items of other conditions, then you'll have to come up with a dynamic solution, like the one I outlined in the aforementioned thread.

            I admit to having huge gaps in my SEO knowledge but having come from BigCommerce 3 years ago where microdata was dynamically and correctly generated, I am saddened to see that 3DCart has not yet caught up with other platforms to provide good microdata , good shopping feed generators and the ability to edit sitemaps.

            I have microdata problems too and last March asked 3DCart repeatedly for help to resolve but all I was told is that this should not happen and is a Google issue, which is untrue. If anyone can politely steer me in the right direction to resolve the errors shown below, I would be very appreciative. Thanks in advance !

              Hi TMS Clint. I really appreciate your help. Unfortunately, it did not solve my problem. Could you look this over to make sure that I entered the code correctly please? I entered this on the Listing template:

              ****
              <!--START: pricing-->
              <div class="pricingBlock" itemprop="offers" itemtype="http://schema.org/Offer">
              <link itemprop="itemcondition" href="http://scheme.org/NewCondition" />
              <link itemprop="availability" href="http://schema.org/[availability_itemprop]" />
              <h3 class="hidden">[product_Header-price]</h3>
              <div class="clear"></div>
              <!--START: ITEMPRICE-->
              <div class="yourprice price">[product_yourprice]<span itemprop="price" id="price">[price]</span></div>
              <!--END: ITEMPRICE-->
              <!--START: SALEPRICE-->
              <div class="saleprice price">[product_onsale]<span itemprop="price" id="price">[saleprice]</span></div>
              <!--END: SALEPRICE-->
              <!--START: price2-->
              <div class="retailprice">[product_retailprice]<span>[price2]</span></div>
              <!--START: SAVINGS-->
              <div class="savings">[product_savings]<span>[savings]</span><span>([savings_percentage]%)</span></div>
              <!--END: SAVINGS-->
              <!--END: price2-->
              <div class="clear"></div>
              </div>
              <!--END: pricing-->

                Please note that any changes you make will take time for Google to update, we made the changes about 1 1/2 weeks ago and our micro data issue has dropped from 2600 down to 1200 so far.

                  Davef You're missing the itemscope

                  HTML Code:
                  <!--START: pricing-->
                  <div class="pricingBlock" itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Offer">
                  <link itemprop="itemcondition" href="http://scheme.org/NewCondition" />
                  <link itemprop="availability" href="http://schema.org/[availability_itemprop]" />


                  I've not used [availability_itemprop] so I'm not sure of its accuracy. What does the Google Structured Data Testing Tool say when you run it what that change?

                  I accept payment in the form of Tiny Pies. ;)

                    Tiny Pies is awesome! Seriously. I'm definitely going to buy them. I'll keep you posted on the tool. Currently, it says there is no problem. But, then it's reported in the Google feed issues. So, this should take care of it. I'll post results here. Thanks, Eagle Eyes.
