Hi

 

I have read a lot about how Drupal 7 / Drupal Gardens have a lot of semantic RDFa like ability built in. I want to know how to utilise this in a Drupal Gardens site like optimising search to take advantage of Google's rich snippets and Yahoo's semantic capabilities.

 

e.g. For a music Drupal Gardens site to come up if a search term is used that is similar to the genre of the music in the music site, like funk, soul etc.

 

I am still experimeting with Drupal Gardens and I am still considering whether Drupal release 1.0 is worthwhile for me. Information on this topic is hard to come by from the searches I have made through forums of Drupal and the likes.

 

Please reply to my thread with whatever useful information anyone can provide.

If you have the RDF module enabled for your site, there are a number of default RDF mappings which get applied to user and node content. At the time of this writing, the following namespaces are being integrated in some manner:

 If you're comfortable reading PHP code, you can glean some information about how core modules are mapping Drupal fields to RDF by reviewing implementations of hook_rdf_mapping(). At this time, I don't believe that there is a way to create custom RDF mappings in Drupal Gardens. Best, Jonathan

Thanks Jonathan

That's great to hear. If I understand correctly, does it mean that any node or tag that you create as a user in Drupal Gardens will have corresponding rdf/rdfa tirples in the html of the DrupalGardens site?

Essentially, I would like to use DrupalGardens in eCommerce. Do you know if  the good relations namespace, "gr" is being integrated as well?

Many thanks for your reply

The Drupal Commerce team was talking about integrating Good Relations, I do not know how far they got. Bojan Z presented about it at Drupal Dev Days I believe.

Here is the last issue I saw about it, http://drupal.org/node/962666
