Workshop 3: How to use internal linking to rank higher with the right content

An internal link is any link from one page on your website to another page on your website. And these links are needed to rank the content on your website in Google. Besides that, internal links connect your content to each other which gives Google an idea of the structure of your website, and that helps to rank with the right content. But that’s not all, also your users use links to navigate through your site. So a decent internal linking structure can also highly improve the UX of your website. And although this might sound difficult, it’s not if you have Yoast SEO and know how to use it. Our own CEO, Marieke van de Rakt, will explain it to you in this workshop!

Workshop 4: How to stand out in Google’s search results?

It’s no secret that it can be hard to rank high and stand out in Google. But what a lot of starting (or longer existing) businesses don’t know, is that there are solutions for this problem. One of the ways to stand out is by getting a rich result or a rich snippet. These are search results that show a lot of extra information (e.g. review, images, price, ingredients), but also FAQs, How-tos, or knowledge panels.

For every business, there’s structured data available and for all of them, it’s beneficial to add it. But to manually add structured data is very difficult and requires coding skills. That’s why we’ve made it easier with Yoast SEO. Taco will take you by the hand and explain step-by-step how to add structured data with the help of Yoast SEO so that your search results can stand out!
