A Guide to JSON-LD for Beginners

Posted by alexis-sanders What is JSON-LD? JSON-LD stands for JavaScript Object Notation for Linked Data, which consists of multi-dimensional arrays (think: list of attribute-value pairs). It is an implementation format for structuring data analogous to Microdata and RDFa. Typically, in terms of SEO, JSON-LD is implemented leveraging the Schema.org vocabulary, a joint effort by Google, Bing, Yahoo!, and Yandex in 2011 to create a unified structured data vocabulary for the web. (However, Bing and other search engines have not officially stated their support of JSON-LD implementations of Schema.org.) JSON-LD is considered to be simpler to implement, due to the ability to simply paste the markup within the HTML document, versus having to wrap the markup around HTML elements (as one would do with Microdata). What does JSON-LD do? JSON-LD annotates elements on a page, structuring the data, which can then be used by search engines to disambiguate elements and establish…

How to Uncover Hidden Keyword-Level Data Using Google Sheets

Posted by SarahLively TL;DR Keyword-level data isn’t gone, it’s just harder to get to. By using Google Sheets to marry the data from Search Console and Google Analytics into a sheet, you’ll have your top keywords and landing page engagement metrics together (for free!). It’s not perfect keyword-level data, but in 7 steps you can see the keywords that drove clicks to a page and the organic engagement metrics for that page, all together in one place. The Google Analytics Add-on for Google Sheets will pull organic landing page engagement metrics, and the Search Analytics for Sheets Add-on will pull the top queries by landing page from Search Console. Then, use VLOOKUP and an Array Formula to combine the data into a new tab that has your specified landing pages, the keywords that drove clicks there, and the specified engagement metrics. What do you mean you don’t know which keyword…

The 2017 Local SEO Forecast: 10 Predictions According to Mozzers

Posted by MiriamEllis Maybe it takes a bit of daring to forecast local search developments in quarters 2, 3, and 4 from the fresh heights of Q1, but the Moz team thrives on challenges. In this post, Rand Fishkin, Dr. Pete Meyers, George Freitag, Britney Muller, and I peer into the future in hopes of helping your local business or local search marketing agency be mentally and tactically prepared for an exciting ride in the year ahead. 1. There will be a major shakeup in local SEO ranking factors. Rand Fishkin, Founder & Wizard of Moz My prediction is that the local SEO ranking factors will have a major shakeup, possibly devaluing some of the long-held elements around listing consistency from hard-to-control third parties. I think Google might make this move because, while they perceive the quality and trustworthiness of those third-party local data aggregators to be decent, they don’t…
