For most entrepreneurs, how we show up in Google search results is a big deal.
It’s a big deal because we want potential clients who are looking for what we have to offer to find us through a search.
And, we want our search listing to look really good, so that they’ll click on our link and check out our website.
So what if I told you that Google (and Bing & Yahoo!) have introduced a new way to tag your website so that the search engines know exactly what’s important about your website or blog post?
It’s Called Microdata
Technical awesomeness aside, the reason this new microdata language matters to you is that how you use this new format affects how you show up in Google search.
In a nutshell, better placement in search results and more attractive search listings lead to more website visitors and, ultimately, more clients.
That’s that microdata will do for your website, if you use it correctly. 🙂
How Do You Actually Use Microdata?
Because microdata is such a visual thing, I’ve stepped out of my writing comfort zone to produce my first video blog (gulp!). It’s long (~ 30 minutes), but it covers exactly how microdata works.
And, I show you step-by-step how to begin implementing it on your website.
This is my first ever video blog, and I’d love your feedback! Leave me a comment below and let me know what you liked, didn’t like, or suggestions for improvement.
And, if you get stuck at any point with implementing microdata on your website, just shoot me an email. I’m happy to help!
