Current Service Schemas

This page shows a little of the current markup landscape on services sites as the basis for the design of an hService microformat.

Active Schemas

We're ignoring RFP and contracts-oriented sites because they're not selling services but opportunities, and they're not in common use by a significant proportion of the population.

Problems with Active Schemas

In our view active schemas are too simplistic. Yahoo effectively prohibits service-specific fields, and Google Base permits only service_type as a service-specific field. Not useful if you're selling 5 kinds of garden waste services!

Conclusion

There is a need for a specific microformat dedicated to providing detailed universal structure to services provided to businesses and consumers.
