Now all of those bits and pieces of microformatted content such as reviews, events, etc. can start to (perhaps) rise in the Google rankings. If something is marked up as a review and it’s from someone you know that should be higher in your desired results as some random result.
As I said towards the end of 2007, I’m looking forward to the advances I thought would happen on the web – I just didn’t think I’d see some of them this quick.
