Whether it's A capella or ZZ Top [*], if you know someone with a website for a band / group of musicians , point them to our information on adding event markup to thier website. There are three ways to do it, so there's almost always a variation that'll work for them.
Very excited to share this with the world: If you have business website, whether it's a national chain or a local business, we're announcing support for schema.org structured data markup to help us surface the correct business info in Google search.
What kind of info? A selection: - Customer service (and other) phone numbers - Business opening hours, locations - Restaurant menus (yummy)
This info tends to be on what's called a "location page" like a store locator for a chain or the contact us page for a small business. To help you build the best user- and search-friendly location pages, we're also publishing detailed guidelines along with our code examples:
+Pierre Far Thank you for the excellent advices. We will optimize the places pages of our clients. But one question: those places pages are done years ago. When G+ startet we told everybody to publish a G+ business page. Now they have 2 pages for 1 purpuse: to be found... That means duplicate work ending in duplicate content. How to merge those pages?
1. Go to http://www.google.com/cse/create/new 2. Expand the advanced section near the bottom 3. In schema.org type restriction field, start typing the Type you're interested in. The auto-complete helps you. 4. Click create. Done. You have a volcano search engine.
It gets better: you can restrict by both language and country. The possibilities are endless.
Seattle math teacher Dan Finkel is in the New York Times with a cute puzzle: "Consider this simple game: flip a fair coin twice. You win if you get two heads, and lose otherwise. It’s not hard to calculate that the chances of winning are 1/4. Your challenge is to design a game, using only a fair coin, that you have a 1/3 chance of winning."
So the odds of winning are still 1/4 + 1/16 + 1/64 + ... = 1/3.
