Get Started

Get started by adding support for microformats to your website, services, and products.


your website

If you have your own website, read hCard authoring tips and:

  • add hCard to your contact info page along with an "Add to address book" link
  • add hCard+XFN to your friends list or blog roll
  • add your website and contact page to the hCard Examples in the wild page.

your blog

If you have a blog:

your organization


contact info

  • Contact info. Every company or organization has a contact or about page of some sort on their website. Read hCard authoring tips and add hCard to the contact/about pages along with "Add to address book" links for each hCard.
  • Employee directory. If your company has a page listing employees or others that belong to the organization, add hCard to the listings or search results.
  • add those pages with hCards to the hCard Examples in the wild page.


Use hCalendar anywhere on the website that publishes event information.


If your organization publishes its history, mark up the events noted with hCalendar, thus allowing anybody to build a dynamic timeline application with your history.


Does your company make any products that generate HTML?


Wondering how to use microformats in an enterprise scenario?

Any publication of information about people, events, reviews etc. could benefit from being marked up with hCard, hCalendar, and hReview respectively.
