In SEO perspective wrapping contents with <div> tags is not an issue but large amount unwanted coding will increase the bytes of data which may increase the PageSpeed. Here an extract from this source: Compacting HTML code, including any inline JavaScript and CSS contained in it, can save many bytes of data and speed up downloading, parsing, ...

They're using microformats, specifically hCard and hCalendar. Along with RDFa and JSON-LD, this is an alternative to microdata. See Google's Rich Snippet spec for people here, and here's my public LinkedIn page viewed with Google's structured data testing tool, showing a preview Rich Snippet and the extracted structured data.

Microdata (Note) can only be used on HTML elements as defined by HTML5. According to HTML5 (CR), the svg element is not in the HTML namespace. WHATWG’s HTML spec explicitly mentions that Microdata doesn’t work for svg (quoted on 2014-01-02): Currently, the itemscope, itemprop, and other microdata attributes are only defined for HTML elements. This means ...

Your questions seem to be: Can I specify itemprop="url" on li? Can I specify itemprop="name" on a? The answer to both of these questions is: No, you should not do that. Microdata defines special parsing rules for elements like a. Schema.org’s url property expects a URL as value. Microdata defines that you have to use a, area or link for specifying ...

Another problem with a code-heavy site is it takes the search engine spiders longer to crawl your pages. Even if bloated code does not affect page load time (from the visitor's perspective) the longer crawl time can negatively affect how the search engines rate your site. (It's not a major signal but every little bit helps.) From SearchEngineGuide.com: ...

I dont think anyone can give you specific advice on why respnsive design is so hard to code, but there are usually two approaches. A. you design for the smallest possible screen and work your way up (mobile first), or b you start with the largest possible screen and work your way down. You can get very elaborate with things, and its a matter of user ...

Not all Schema markup is displayed in rich snippets in search results and this is the case with the Schema you have implemented. There is still value in marking up what you can on your website with relevant Schema though and for some websites, it is not always possible to have rich snippets displayed (depends on the type of content your website provides). ...

Having a duplicate set of navigation links isn't going to change how Google sees your site much. In fact, when Googlebot encounters a second link to the same destination in a page, it generally ignores it: PageRank is only passed to the first link Anchor text only counts for the first link Having duplicate navigation is very common. I've worked with ...

div elements mean nothing. Consumers interested in the meaning of your content simply ignore them (that is, after extracting possible attribute values, like those used by RDFa, Microdata or Microformats). For these consumers, it wouldn’t matter if a div is a parent or a child of another element (so do whatever you like more). However, if it’s possible for ...

Note: This snippet on its own is not doing what you want because you didn’t specify any vocabulary. Here in my answer I’ll use the schema: prefix as specified in the RDFa Core Initial Context. (Not needed if you have a vocab on a parent element.) The author property takes one name. And it expects a Person (or Organization) type as value. And it doesn’t make ...

To clarify the terminology: Microdata is a syntax. Schema.org is a vocabulary. (And such a vocabulary can be used with different syntaxes like JSON-LD, Microdata, and RDFa). Your two example snippets are correct. And your observation is also correct: BlogPosting doesn’t define any new properties. […] can I use the properties from other item types like: ...

Sure, cross-domain is fine. Using .mobi was very popular for a while, other sites just use "m.theirdomain.com", it's essentially up to you. Keep in mind that multiple domains for the same site does increase the maintenance overhead, but that's ultimately your decision.

Max, Google does support structured data for Organization markups, but they don't support rich snippets for the type. If you change schema.org/Organization to schema.org/LocalBusiness in your markup, you'll see the testing tool results change and the rich snippets displaying. So the error message you're seeing is in regards to rich snippets, not the ...

Although their documentation doesn't say so, using the rel attribute is supported by Google, so both should work. The 'in-URL' ?rel= syntax exists for blog users, who may not have access to edit the page's HTML tags, but the HTML5 separate attribute version is more 'correct' so I'd recommend: <a href="[profile_url]" rel="author">Author</a>

Whatever you mean by “schema markup”, the answer is “No.” Generated content is plain text and cannot contain any markup or have any markup associated with it.

SiteNavigationElement has a problem for me, and for some other people as well, like we can see in the question posted by @bybe in a comment. we can say that the problem is lack of scope. Is SiteNavigationElement referred to a single item of the navigation system, and so it is read as: an Element of the Navigation of the Site. Or it is referred to the whole ...

This link describes what Google is expecting in terms of a product listing, items in bold are required. So from looking at your mark-up you have the name property of product in the wrong place as it comes after the image property, I would move this above the image and I think it should validate OK. <span itemprop="name">Blackforest Cake BFC1 ...

I know this is three years old, but I came across it looking for the same answer today, for Office 2010 anyway there is an option to save as "filtered HTML" without the extra Microsoft code : About using filtered HTML When you save Web pages or send e-mail messages in HTML format with Microsoft Word, additional tags are added so that you can continue ...

This depends on the actual content (there is an important difference between, e.g., a hash and ASCII art) and the context (editable vs. presented content). So after choosing the appropriate element (and possibly WAI-ARIA), HTML5 offers the following options: The language tag zxx (IETF BCP 47/IANA registry) can be used for "no linguistic content": ...

There's no specific recommendations for WCAG 2.0 or even in HTML5 (yet). You can probably wrap it with a <code> tag (like Joel Etherton suggested). ASCII art is different though. WCAG recommends that you provide the user a text description and a way to skip it. See H86.
