Im an architect that has always had a little bug about programming (my uncle's profession), so since i have some free time, i started learning C#. I began reading some manuals in August 2011 and started to code my first app in November 2011.

Hopefully i'll get some more app requests so i can get to learn more about coding.

webmasters.stackexchange.com/a/65570/12463 - I added a link to that answer to where I got it, lots of cool tricks in there and don't forget to use the microdata testing tool here - google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets

The only thing I would change is the part about having to reformat/reorganize your content and make compromises about what to tag. Keep in mind that with the itemref and id attributes you can simply pick any part of your html and place it within any microdata item anywhere on the page, regardless of your html nesting, take a look here -> webmasters.stackexchange.com/a/65570/12463

No problem, I'm just glad I figured things out and was able to help at the same time. Just tweak your answer regarding the nesting separation so I can accept it. I don't think there'll be much controversy on what was said

Given what I figured out in my other question, I think it would be important to mention that nesting microdata items is important since it creates relationships between bits of data, but it's important not to attempt to try and match HTML nesting with microdata nesting.

@unor I'm refering to microdata level nesting of items within their appropriate properties

Yeah, I was just testing and saw that even within an item <div itemscope itemtype="something"><span itemscope itemtype="somethingElse"></span></div> I can redeclare this same structure for some other item and as long as it doesn't contain an itemprop attribute in its outermost tag, it jumps out of the nesting. This means somethingElse won't be a child of something, which is helpfull, although not what I'm looking for

By pointers I mean an html attribute that could reference an Item. In the code example I gave, I have a loose (not nested) Organization that I would like to be inserted into my second item Product within it's brand property, but without having to copy+paste or echo again within the Product. I tried to simulate that behavior with the itemref attribute.

@Yes, I have a diagram ready to go for that case, where I implement the markup throughout the entire body tag, within an "Organization" or "Product" item type. I am thinking however that I could declare the "Organization" within the header, but then use it with a pointer later within the code to create the relationship. This would allow me to have less to worry about in regards to containers and what properties are getting linked to what items.

I think there's regulation in place in the US so that Google's and other search engine's modifications don't affect the market too much after an update (it's just hearsay for me, I didn't read it anywhere official, although it makes sense). I heard there was a sort of a crisis there when they changed the algorithm a couple of years back, but again I've got no proof on that, just hearsay. Although I have a feeling this schema business is going to catch on, the rewards will have to be gradual to avoid exploits

Btw I commented on my question regarding a related question I made. I'd love to hear your opinion on it, since it's implementation goes towards the cross-eye you mentioned
