hCard is basically the same thing as vCard, and the latter is what LinkedIn seem to be using in their code.

comment How does LinkedIn show markup in search results without using schema or microdata markup?
The Schema.org microdata vocabulary is developed and maintained as a joint venture between Google, Bing, Yahoo and later Yandex, so of the available options I think it is the most likely to remain widely supported and stay current enough to be a useful vocabulary. The same is probably true for JSON-LD. It can be tricky to implement as documentation isn't great, so If you're having trouble with an implementation, please post in its own question.

comment Best method to avoid link juice dilution when a page has lots of links
Thanks for the link: I'm not sure what you refer to in your other answer describes a penalty, though. I can see it says "take action to reduce", which isn't the same thing. Have I missed an important bit? Regards PageRank, I think we may be talking at cross-purposes. I wouldn't expect links to reduce performance of the referring page; I don't think that's how PageRank works, not because of any "redistribution" but because a link which gives PageRank doesn't take it from the referring page.

Do you have a reference for "penalty from Google for showing search result pages in their search results"? Webmaster Guidelines recommend against it, but say nothing of penalty. I'm not sure I follow your argument on PageRank, but I think it may be contrary to what Matt Cutts explains here: mattcutts.com/blog/pagerank-sculpting - essentially that PageRank is not redistributed.

comment Will Page Rank affect if we delete index.php from URL?
According to Google, a 301 will attenuate PageRank inflow by ~15%, which is about the same as a normal link. Consequently where a link and a 301 are in series, total PageRank loss is compounded. So in addition to the redirects Bjørn correctly suggests, you'd update your internal links to the new (sans index.php) format and ideally try to get key external links updated too, though some loss from external links is likely unavoidable. I'm not aware of any basis for idea that redirecting every URL is "not good in the eyes of search engine": doing so is standard practice when migrating sites.
