Product Examples

This is an exploratory page to document product examples currently published around the web. Typically, the metadata associated with this content is stored in non-semantic markup and proprietary formats. The purpose of the studies on this page is to serve as background for the design of a simple distributed product microformat.

Clothes

Link to product rather than actual product immediately available for sale. Personally marked-up and used rel-product ideas to link to the shop.

  • Image
    • Thumbnail
  • Product
    • Type
    • Title
  • Properties
    • Colour
  • Link
    • Buy this Online (rel=product)

Mark-up:

<div class="hproduct">
	<img src="#" alt="polo shirt" class="product-thumb" />
	<h3 class="product-type">Polo Shirt</h3>
	<h4 class="product-title">Coxmoor</h4>
	<p class="p-v"><span class="property">Colour:</span> <span class="value">289 Rush</span></p>
	<p><a href="poloshirt/coxmoor/" title="Buy This Online" rel="product">Buy This Online</a></p>
</div>

CDs

Additionally the site has links to products on Amazon.

  • Image
    • Thumbnail
  • Product
    • Title
  • Properties
    • Artist
  • Link
    • Buy this Online (rel=product)
  • Currency implementation

Mark-up:

<div class="hproduct">
	<a href="#" rel="product">
	   <img src="assets/images/timeline/amazon/small-faces.gif" alt="Small Faces Album" class="product-thumb" />
	</a>
	<h3 class="product-title"><a href="#" rel="product">Ogdens' Nut Gone Flakes</a></h3>
	<h4 class="p-v"><span class="property artist">Small Faces</span></h4>
	<p class="product-buy"><a href="#" title="Buy this online" rel="product">Buy from Amazon</a></p>
	<p class="money"><abbr class="currency" title="GBP">£</abbr><span class="amount">6.99</span></p>
</div>


The use of Non-visible property names made it possible to have an invisible property of 'artist'. Having 'Artist: Small Faces' was not in the visual specification of the Ben Sherman site.

Comparison Shopping Engines

These examples come from a slightly different angle. This information may or may not be listed in its entirety on the landing page of the specific product; however, many merchants possess this information and submit it to shopping engines for inclusion in search results.

Existing schema

This section should be moved to product-formats where existing formats in general should be documented.

Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) is an identifier for trade items developed by GS1 (comprising the former EAN International and Uniform Code Council).
