Structured Data in terms to Search engines and Websites refers to formatting the information on website/webpage in a way that a Search Engine Understands. The Major Search engines such as Google / Yahoo / Bing use the Structured Data to filter the search results and display relevant results based on search queries. This gives the users the result they are really looking for and creates a good user experience.

All webpages have a specific meaning and reason to be up there on a website. Search engines are intellegent but they are not humans and hence they have a limited understanding of the content it finds on a web page.

For example: Consider an word “plane”. We can understand by the context of web page what the word plane means. If it means an Air Plane or a Flat surface. But the Search engine can not interpret the actual meaning in this context. Hence the search engine may not display relevant result for a query with word plane. Hence we use Structured Data Markup on web page for explaining the search engines what the context is all about.

You can use the Google Webmasters Tools to create the markup but has its own limitations as there are over 100′s of caregories to choose from but google has about 10 Categories only. https://www.google.com/webmasters/

I can help you create structured data markup on your website.  I am an expert in Creating Structured Data markup from Toronto / Mississauga.

Google-Authorship-Toronto

 

 

 

Above is a screen shot of what Google Authorship is and How the results on SERP’s look like using Google Authorship. Why would you not want Google Authorship ? Well some website owners donot want to have the Google Authorship done, but there are Advantages of having Google Authorship.

1) Gain More Real Estate on Search Results page. Thus more visibility.

2) Get your Personal picture appear besides results. Your Picture next to the article will generate trust and confidence. More likely to be Clicked than other results. Also personalises the result.

3)Helps reduce and combat Plagiarism When you, as the original author, APPLY authorship markup to your website / web page , the scraper’s will be identified by Google algorithm and your content will be given priority over the scrapers in the search results.

4)Quicker Indexing: SEOmoz published the article, “Google Authorship and the Fast Track to Better Rankings: A Case Study, by Jeff Sauer [February 11, 2013] indicating, “The sooner that you connect Google+ authorship to a new domain, the sooner you will be indexed.”

So there is no second thought on implementing Google authorship markup on your website. You got to do it now. It is cumulative. The earlier you do it to your website the better.

Note: It is very frustrating as the process is very confusing and the profile picture does not show up for naive SEO professionals who do not have enough experience. Its better to do the Google Authorship the right way instead of feeling frustrated.
