Rich Snippets: Coming Soon to a Search Engine Near You!

Search engines not only display content, they spider web pages, gathering information from your pages, then re-work all that information into a listing that searchers see when they're looking for stuff -- and the cycle is complete.

When a person goes to a search engine they have a good idea of what they’re looking for (otherwise they'll be on StumbleUpon, right?). With millions of search results being found and displayed, sometimes it's hard for people to find what they're looking for among all those results.

To help combat that, Google is trying to show searchers more information about their search results. Information about information?

That sounds a lot like meta-data! Yes, yes it does!

Here at Lifetime, we're starting to roll out web pages that will take advantage of Google's "Rich Snippits" to get more information about our products into search results so you can find your information faster, easier, and more efficiently! Very soon you'll begin to see Lifetime's products show up with ratings, prices, and even thumbnails -- right in your search results!

Background: You’ve always wanted to know who on earth Joe is, and even if you haven't we're going to tell you anyway! He was born in Weber County, Utah, USA. He is a descendant of Paiute (Native American) heritage and is a member of the Kanosh (Utah) Band. He is a member of various community, church, and civic organizations, and is actively involved with local, state, and national government. He is concerned with customer service and is striving to educate businesses concerning proper “consumer etiquette”. Joe is a Thawte Web of Trust Notary and is involved with seamless Digital Signatures utilizing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and similar technologies. He is a husband and father. He rides his recumbent bicycle to work every day. He enjoys gardening, houseplants, mobile computing, camping, authoring web sites, working in the yard, and spending time with his family. How does he do it all? We really don’t have the foggiest. Some have suspected he’s discovered the secrets of cold fusion, while others think he may be an android. We may never know for certain.

My favorite Lifetime Products: Lifetime Yard cart, outdoor sheds, camp tables, and picnic tables

Lifetime Products: A “Lean” Manufacturing Leader - Learns from Toyota
Three of our executives--President, COO, and VP of Research Development--recently had the opportunity to visit Toyotas assembly plant in Japan. Their visit was not to see how cars and trucks are built, but rather to learn more about Toyotas Lean manufacturing ways. Lean is a term used frequently here at Lifetime. Basically, Lean is centered on preserving value with less work. Lifetime has been implementing Lean methods for more than ten years however; there has been renewed emphasis the past two years. Some of which include flow of material and plant layout. The concept of Lean manufacturing is growing in popularity around the world but it originally derived from the Toyota Production System (TPS) in Japan. Our executives said Japan, in general, is an unbelievably clean and neat country which is directly reflected in their ...
