Boost your organic visibility with structured data

Why you should rewatch this workshop!

Studies indicate that ~80% of all searchers click on an organic search result that’s on the first three pages of Google. So, everyone that wants to grow traffic to their website should optimize their content for search engines. 

But… when you’re on that first (or second, or third) page, you want to be more visible than your competitors. You can do this with rich results: search results that show a lot of extra information like prices, reviews, images, FAQs, how-to’s, knowledge panels, and much more.

But how can you get rich results? It’s not as hard as it may sound, and Yoast SEO can help you with it. Jono Alderson tells you all about it in this workshop.
