Does Anyone Know Why Google Recommends Microdata Over Microformats And RDFa?

- 1 answer

I have researched a lot about the mark-up formats Microdata, Microformats and RDFa. Google recommend Microdata over the other two mark-ups and I want to know why. Reading a ton of documents and studying these mark-ups leaves me more clueless than before I started reading. Does anyone know why Google recommend this type? Is it something to with HTML5?

Here is a link to the site where I got the information from Google.

Thank you.

I think this is simply because schema.org is Google's own initiative (they created it together with Microsoft and Yahoo). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schema.org.
