Hi, I'm looking at doing this with my website, specifically with the products and product reviews. http://www.schema.org/Product

It's one heck of a lot of work, from the looks of things, and also something that it would be easy to mess up.

website is magic kitchen dot com. We sell gourmet frozen meals, as well as another menu of diabetic meals. The question is this- we're not an information site, we're just an e-commerce site.

Do you see value in doing this mark-up? Thanks in advance.

At the moment this form of markup can get you an extra line in the snippet that shows your price and stock level.

If you have reviews on your products it also shows the star rating. And that's a big bonus as it makes you stand out.

So I'd say it's of more value if you have reviews on your products.

In the future the information you mark up will help the bots understand more about your products. I'd expect other benefits from it. e.g. Automatically being added to comparison shopping sites.
