Mark-up help google determine the type of visitor you should receive? Shepherd msg:4611288 1:02 pm on Sep 20, 2013 (gmt 0) This thought is based on the assumption that google assigns searchers and websites to categories such as: searcher: informational, transactional, navigational websites: informational, transactional (ecom) If a website uses mark-up on a page to identify a product (http://schema.org/Product) can/does/should that indicate that the website should receive visitors that have done searches that are transactional in nature?

Probably yes, but Google can also recognise products without having [ ...] markup. schema.org Whether Google thinks the site is a good match for a transactional query is a different matter. Shepherd msg:4614638 11:48 am on Oct 4, 2013 (gmt 0)
Yes, google can certainly figure things out. My thinking is that using the markup removes any gray area.
Whether Google thinks the site is a good match for a transactional query is a different matter. That's interesting, I wonder what signals google could be using to determine if a page/site is a good match for a transactional query. Awarn msg:4614653 12:51 pm on Oct 4, 2013 (gmt 0)
I have not seen Google really be able to handle product mark up well let alone being able to make assumptions from the data. They are too busy crawling blogs.
