Hi all,

I've noticed that when I use google's rich snippets testing tool
(http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets), if I use the
older data-vocabulary.org vocabs I get a preview rich snippet, whereas
if I use schema.org, even by copy/pasting in some of their examples, I
do NOT get a preview.

I would rather use schema.org since it has more extensive
vocabularies, but I was wondering why this might be and if others are
noticing this as well?

Hi,
at present this problem is still not resolved and this is a big
stopper for people who want to adopt schema.org vocabularies.
How can one know whether the problem is only with the rich snippet
testing tool or with the actual search engine too?
Is Google already really supporting schema.org vocabularies? At least
for recipes?

Best,
Francesco

Ciao Guha,
could you suggest a publication date of Google rich snippets testing
tool with support to schema.org vocabulary?
Thank you.
Best regards

Schema.org formats are being parsed correctly by Google but the testing tool UI/preview for some of those types are lagging behind.
The testing tool does show preview for Events marked up as schema.org which you can see here -

Within 2-3 weeks we should have support for other rich snippets types marked up as schema.org also - recipes, reviews, etc.
Thanks

Thank you, but it seems there are some problem parsing other
documents, like <http://genitoriprecari.it/> (shema.org/Event is in
"Prossimi eventi" widget in the sidebar). Maybe there are some errors
in my code, but it seems ok to me…
If I open <https://sites.google.com/site/pravirgupta/
events_schema_org.html?attredirects=0&d=1> Firefox 5.01 asks me to
download it…

Hello -

Can you give us some idea when the UI of tool will be updated to
display rich snippets of other marup types.

Thanks

Yes, curious if schema.org is dead on arrival, or is this still the
right approach for pursuing rich snippets with Microdata.

If it is dead, it is awfully active after dying!

Its definitely not dead but they do need to be more active on updating it the Rich Snippet testing tool. Saying that though, even though Schema.org is a collaboration between Bing, Yahoo and Google.... it only seems to be Google that has the tools for testing it?
