    Anxious to see what other data types google is going to add.

    This isn’t a tool to help less tech-savvy webmasters (they wouldn’t know about WMT, let alone how to set it up)… it is a tool to discourage the use of open micro formats /schema.org markup to cut competitors out of the loop.

    We have just been using this for products on some clients sites which
    we hadn’t got around to hard coding schema on but I have a question
    about category levels!

    Will google pick up all products regardless to how deep they are in categories?

    example say you have products at domain.com/*/*/* as well as
    domain.com/*/* and domain.com/*/*/*/*/* at different parts of a site.

    So that’s:

    Will google find the products at those 3 different levels if you only do it for say the first example?

    Like what? All I can see being added is more options in what’s listed above!

    For example, adding brand and delivery options to products would be good.

    Its meant to help those with less knowledge of coding, so they too can take advantage of using markup like this.

    Yeah we noticed on a site which we redesigned last week that google didn’t do so well with workout what’s what due to having not re-cached all the pages yet, so we would have to wait for google to catchup on those changes before using the product data highlighter on that site!

    Wonder it the benefit of using google’s data highlighter for a blog type website.

    Can you confirm that it is ok to use this tool to mark up a blog post? According to schema.org, a blog post has the properties of an ‘article’ : http://schema.org/BlogPosting

    I gave it a whirl last night and waiting to see if anything happens. My only concern is that I already have schema in the footer for local business. This schema is verified in Rich Snippets tool. Do you think it ok to use two different methods (html schema and data highlighter )? Or am I playing with fire?

    thank you
