Why this Structured Data Training exist
Hey there. My name is Florian. I’m developer of SNIP, the Structured Data Plugin for WordPress that exists since 2011.
In this course I want to teach all of my customers (and non-costumers) what Structured Data is, how it affects SEO, why it is super important for the future of any website and how SNIP can be used to get the best results.
I’ve separated the course into several modules. The first one explains the basics of structured data. I’m going through some questions like: what is structured data, why is it important, what do search engines do with it and many more.
I describe the techniques how structured data can be implemented. Here I guide you through the different formats that exist. In this module it becomes a little technical. But don’t worry. My customers have asked me a lot of questions over the last few years, so I know exactly where most people need help. That’s why I’m sure I can give you the best description so everyone understands it.
In module 2 I’ll create some Structured Data Types that generate Rich Snippets in Search Results. In the end I’ll explain more advanced topics of the plugin that will make your life a lot easier. For example you can create a so called „Global Snippet“ that allows you to create one single snippet and use it on multiple posts, pages or custom post types in WordPress.
Sound’s good? Great. Let’s start. I’ll see you in the first lesson!
In the first module I want to explain the different terms, like schema type, schema class, rich snippets, etc.
