Structured Data – The 80s Hair Metal Edition Matthew J. Brown - Moz - @MatthewJBrown
Remember REO Speedwagon?
Remember 10 blue links?
THAT WASN’T VERY METAL
So now we’ve got SERPs that ROCKKKK
Structured data allows big sites to buy ‘beachfront property’
And also allows smaller players to snatch up real estate
Almost 75% of the Top 100 sites in Alexa contain structured data markup Over the Top 1 Million sites in Alexa, that drops to 20% Big sites: Ahead of the game bit.ly/HQraE9
But the game changes all the time
The (updated) basics
Schema.org, Twitter Cards, Authorship, Open Graph (all of these and more covered by @ipullrank here: bit.ly/11cwNBU)
Open Graph Tags https://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/
Keep a lookout for new Open Graph actions: bit.ly/Zxop33
Yandex is using Open Graph create interactive “Islands”
Gmail is supporting ‘Actions in the Inbox’ with Schema.org
Twitter Cards: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards
Keep a lookout for new channels using data markup (Pinterest’s Rich Pins: bit.ly/12oiJoe)
“If your site has very few pages, or very few pages with marked-up structured data, it may not be picked up by the rich snippets system.” Schema.org Step 1 - RTFM! bit.ly/1aFaoV2
Schema.org Step 2: Prioritize bit.ly/xWKwcU
Schema.org Step 3: Competition
Schema.org Step 4: Validate - bit.ly/1aFaoV2
Schema.org Step 5: Keep track of changes to this WMT page: http://bit.ly/105kY02
Schema.org Step 6: The rich snippets Hail Mary: http://bit.ly/yZ8vkb

It’s not just about links anymore
Go all in with markup
What did we learn from the 80s?
Sometimes, the party is over
Google is the grunge of search
They’re taking over lots of the good stuff
Displacing entire verticals
Sometimes without structured data
Have a plan to survive
Our brave new mobile world
Mobile + Desktop BFFs
Plan for mobile/table traffic
Use authorship to maximize domain authority
Put G+ and Author Rank to work
Can I be an “entity in the knowledge graph”? YES. http://www.greenlaneseo.com/blog/2014/02/optimize-now-entities-relationships/
