What is Structured Data?

Structured data refers to kinds of data with a high level of organization, such as information in a relational database. When information is highly structured and predictable, search engines can more easily organize and display it in creative ways. Structured data markup is a text-based organization of data that is included in a file and served from the web. It typically uses the schema.org vocabulary—an open community effort to promote standard structured data in a variety of online applications.

How to test your Structured Data

Google created the Structured Data Testing Tool (SDTT) which can help you develop, test, and modify your structured markup and rich snippets.

Does Structured Data & Rich Snippets help with SEO?

Absolutely! There is no question that structured data that produces rich snippets "bling" that improves (SEO) SERP click-through rates (CTR). Virtually every SEO expert on the planet will tell you that organic click-through rates are a major search engine optimization ranking factor. Thus, structured data has a very high correlation with search engine rankings.

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

SEO is a marketing discipline focused on growing visibility in organic (non-paid) search engine results. SEO encompasses both the technical and creative elements required to improve rankings, drive traffic, and increase awareness in search engines. There are many aspects to SEO, from the words on your page to the way other sites link to you on the web. Sometimes SEO is simply a matter of making sure your site is structured in a way that search engines understand.
