Rich Contact Widget

This contact widget for WordPress comes with enhanced markup for microdatas & microformats, so that search engines can use it in their search results. They can help display contact informations about your business or yourself below your website in search results, and even a map with your location.

The telephone & email are linked so that visitors can click on it and make a call (through mobile or skype) or send a mail from their computer or their mobile devices.

You can also display a static image map of your location, linking to the address' Google Maps page, and display a download link for a vCard.

More informations on microdatas microformats can be found here :
