importance of Microdata and rich snippets in HTML5
I am busy with optimizing my website with SEO content and everywhere possible adding tags, titles and name attributes.
When I go to my Google Webtools there is a section about 'Rich Snippets" which should be added to your content by using microdata which HTML5 is using to index web pages in a more understandable way for Bing, Yahoo, Google etc. and build stronger links (please correct me if I am wrong)
I've setup the first articles with snippets and I would looove to know if this any sence in the snippet tree which should be used based on the schematics from schema.org.
So basically I want to know is it worth all the extra work and in the example below, did I implement this correctly?
Your ideas and insight are very appreciated.
Cheers and have a good one :)
