What is structured data?

Structured data is an authoritative vocabulary that makes your website easier for search engines to understand. Structured data contextualizes content for search engines, so they can accurately match it to relevant search queries.

How does structured data work?

Structured data works by using agreed-upon methods of defining information to label webpages. Schema.org is the official vocabulary of structured data that is embedded on webpages for context and meaning, and JSON-LD is the format used to embed this schema.org markup. This combination of schema.org markup in the JSON-LD format is the preferred method of search engines for understanding website content.

Why is structured data important for SEO?

Search engines are trying to serve the most relevant links to satisfy queries. With structured data, you are helping search engines target your content to the right people in search results. Also, when your content is marked up with structured data, search engines qualify it for rich results in organic search, which further improves your reputation and visibility, and directs more qualified traffic to your website.

How easy is it to manually add structured data to your website?

It is not easy or cost-effective. If you have a developer do it, it takes hours of work. They have to go through every page on your website and manually add it in. And depending on the size of your website, that could translate to thousands or tens of thousands of labor dollars. Furthermore, when Google inevitably changes the criteria for structured data, you have to repeat the process all over again. It is a never-ending cycle.

How does Huckabuy add structured data to a website?

We supply a small snippet of Javascript code through a tag manager such as GTM to add markup to each page of your website. Our solution requires no ongoing maintenance from your staff. Drop our line of Javascript code into the header of your website and watch it go to work. Huckabuy’s fully automated structured data software provides continuous and effective optimization of your website through world-class markup in the JSON-LD format. When Google changes the criteria for structured data, within a matter of hours, our software detects it and rewrites the script accordingly.

When is the best time to implement structured data?

We recommend implementing structured data immediately because it’s the easiest way to start getting wins and it’s exactly what Google wants. Even if you are considering or preparing for a website redesign, there is no reason to postpone. The implementation can happen immediately and when the redesign is complete, our software automatically repopulates structured data on the new site.

What is the importance of voice search in SEO?

Google’s objective is to rank websites accurately so searchers can satisfy their queries faster and more conveniently. Voice results cater to this objective by improving the user experience. Content that improves the user experience will experience higher rankings in relevant Google SERPs and increased website traffic. Additionally, this is the fastest-growing form of search, so If you want to stay current and reach a wider base of customers, optimizing your content for voice is critical.

Why should you add structured data to your website for voice search?

Search engines are progressing towards full audio browsing capability. Google, for example, is testing a speakable-specific markup type for content intended to be spoken aloud. Adding structured data markup allows search engines to identify content for assistants to read aloud in results. For example, when users search for local businesses, they often look for things like operational hours, contact information, address, and directions. Structured data organizes and classifies this content so that search engines can reproduce key information in voice results.

What is Schema Marketing?

Schema Marketing is a digital strategy that relies on the use of structured data to promote products and services directly on the search results page through embedded rich features like ratings and reviews, product pricing and availability, and frequently asked questions that distinguish your links from competitors and help your target customers satisfy their queries and buying journeys faster.
