I've been playing around a bit with hCard which allows you to input an address in a format that shows what part is the city, telephone # etc (See below for example)
However, as far as I can tell there's no way to tag business hours, so I'm interested if there's a known way in which I can make that clearer to Google. Also, I'm interested how Google recognizes that a comment on a particale website is a review? G maps sometimes pulls reviews from other sites, does anyone know what signals they rely on for this?
I meant in terms of citations...when G scans different websites it looks for signals to determine if there's anything on other webpages that supports the info they already have. By making sure your address shows up on many other websites G will use those as citations...my question is if there's a particular format or way of tagging that will let G know when they scan a web page that they're actually looking at business hours (as opposed to some other number)

In Japan the map data from review sites contains extra detail data if it is filled-in on the review forms of the respective review sites. Google Japan has about 4 sites that they use, and they appear to follow the format differently for each. I was digging around for examples of sites that pulled business hours and showed them in the snippet, but I wasn't successful. That doesn't mean they aren't there. ;) I think Google has just set itself up to scrape the data of that particular review site. So, if you can find business hours listings from a review site, then you'd want to check their forms.
