    The good news is that this is already achievable through our theme engine. Some spots were enhanced for even better support in 2013.4+. At AmeriCommerce, we used the theme engine to apply these schema tags to all of our new responsive themes (“Base”, “DejaVu”, etc.) Rich Snippets are a theme/html concern vs. a feature, they are just a basic HTML tags from schema.org. Unfortunately, due to the possibility of quality issues, we are not able to automatically insert these tags in customers’ themes because everyone’s themes are laid out so differently (an inherit part of the power of our R3V Theme Engine). There is a high chance that by making assumptions about our customers’ theme/html, visual anomalies will occur. The good news is that it is easy to mark up your existing pages with the tags, click here to see how http://support.americommerce.com/entries/22565644-Adding-Schema-org-Rich-Snippets-to-your-products ! Even better, you could simply install one of our new themes on your store. Our new themes have many benefits beyond baked in rich snippets, like being responsive across tablets and mobile, and greater support for custom layout across more pages and widgets.

    With Google officially supporting this, it is only a matter of time before all ecommerce platforms include it. AmeriCommerce should be first! ;)

    It's now official, Google, Bing and Yahoo are now supporting "a common vocabulary for structured data markup on web pages" via http://schema.org - http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/06/introducing-schemaorg-search-engines.html

    Adding schema.org info to AC sites is a pain. Due to specific areas of code being off-limits to customers (IMG source URL, Product Review info, ), there's only so much markup we can add ourselves. Here is yet another source recommending the addition of microdata to websites: http://www.websitemagazine.com/content/blogs/posts/archive/2011/11/18/step-up-your-e-commerce-seo-game-with-product-microdata.aspx?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter

    I gave this 3 votes as well!! I actually do know a few ecommerce platforms that now support this but I won't mention them hear as I'm loyal to AC. But they have to get this implemented. This will mean improved indexing,

    We had manually coded this into our product pages, however this is extremely useful and beneficial for All AC customers

    This has been implemented in only two other carts that I know of and is, indeed, a great idea. I also gave it three votes! Even though I suspect that Google will stop using this in the near future, due to their ever-improving semantic search capabilitiesn further separating themselves from their competitors, it certainly would be a great selling point from Americommerce's perspective. I really don't think it would be all too hard to implement, either. There aren't very many product-specific fields in the schema.org platform and most of them could be created on the fly from information people are already entering into the various product fields in Admin.

    I would like this, too. Or at least open up the areas that we can't get to, like reviews and such, as mentioned. I would like to get going on this and get the edge asap. Thanks!

    I just started learning about this but I'm surprised people were talking about this in 2010. Aren't we moving forward?

    This is highly relevant to the future of SEO. Adding this as standard fields in the backend would give your product a huge lead in SEO implementation. None of my competitors have implemented this yet so this would give your customers a jump on the next level of SEO. Rich snippets – Products https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/146750 To be a leader in your industry means you do what it takes to be at the leading edge. Having your current client’s votes for what they want, can give you an idea of what they want but does nothing to entice new customers or stay ahead of the competition.

    With the update of Google Hummingbird, this has become even more crucial. Just to clarify, rich snippets are what is awarded by Google. The markup standard is schema.org. This would allow us to get markup on pricing, reviews, breadcrumbs, etc.
