Resources of a Resource
Resources of a Resource or ROR is an XML format
which creates new opportunities for web content providers to describe their
content as classified objects. As a result, automated indexing processes, based
on search engines discoveries, can avoid guessing about the meaning of each
publisher's web-based content.
What is ROR?
ROR (Resources of a Resource) is a rapidly growing independent
XML format for describing any object of your content in a generic fashion, so
any search engine can better understand that content.
RORweb.com is the official ROR website.
ROR promotes the concept of structured feeds (which is related to the concept of
structured blogging) enabling search engines to complement text search with
structured information to better understand meaning. ROR information is
typically stored in a ROR feed called ror.xml placed in your website's main
directory. Unlike Google Base, ROR feeds can be easily accessed by all search
engines: at http://www.your-website-name.com/ror.xml
You can think of your ROR feed as a powerful structured feed for describing all
your objects to the search engines: products, services, reviews, discounts,
images, events, schedule, podcasts, anything you want.
The current object types and attributes of the ROR format can be found here. We
are working with several companies and individuals in defining new object types
and attributes for everyone to use. If you want to participate in this effort
(i.e. submit a schema, suggest new types and attributes), please contact us at
the email address above.
As we expand the ROR format, our goal is to re-use existing data structures and
formats as much as possible.
