  1. Looking for guidance on how to use rich snippets on my Thematic child theme, beyond what I've read on Google Webmaster Tools, and not interested in a plugin solution.

    Thanks.

  3. Hello helgatheviking,

    This from Google yesterday: "Today, we’re announcing that your use of Rich Snippets can help people find the web pages you’ve created that may reference a specific place or location. By using structured HTML formats like hCard to markup the business or organization described on your page, you make it easier for search engines like Google to properly classify your site, recognize and understand that its content is about a particular place, and make it discoverable to users on Place pages."

    My question is do we write additional css for these or apply current css to them? Here's an example where the basic info. for an organization is presented first as an unordered list - then (below the map) using hCard microformat, exactly as presented in Google's own example:
