Implement 'Rich snippets' for Google
You can find information on 'rich snippets' at http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=99170
HTML5 microdata adds a lot of functionality and allows search engines and scripts to recognize content and functionality. Naturally this affects SEO in many good ways. This includes rich snippets that Google is currently pushing.
Its only a matter of time before Google will start to punish websites that do not use schema.org / html5 microdata.
There are other suggestions for rich snippets. This suggestion goes further and requests full implementation of html 5 microdata.
Released in v4.2.1
See here for comments by CS-Cart administrator that Rich Snippets are still under development: http://forum.cs-cart.com/topic/36318-cs-cart-421-release-candidate/page__st__40__p__187088#entry187088
This is not completed. CS-Cart 4.2.1 only implements a few tags out of many. This request is for full implementation. Most of CS-Cart does not have rich snippets implemented.

Has this not been deployed already?
How do you get the latest version of these rich snippets onto the site?
We'd like to offer you our "Google Structured Data" add-on that works on our site successfully. You can find it on the following page http://www.cs-market.com/cs-cart-addons/cs-cart-google-structured-data-add-on.html.

Yes, I think would be better if this is implemented by the creators, not external developers. Hope cs-cart team can develop this feature.

Much more costless addon that handles microdata + rating snippets
Agree it should be in the core functionality
This type of functionality should be built in to a cart . . . we shouldn't need a 3rd party.
