which one do you prefer to update information about your products in PLA? Which one is generally better?


Are microdata heavy load for web pages?


Can't wait for your opinions and experience.

Microdata might still be required as Google needs to cross reference your pricing. So if for example you have multiple prices on a page. The microdata is required to show Google which price is the price they pay for.

So the question is not relevant in terms of versus.

As both might be required.

The online product inventory is if you want to quickly update several fields limited to the below
'sale price'
'sale price effective date'

While the intention of microdata is to cross reference allot more than that.
