First and foremost, let me talk about what it is that you’re going to see in this training. I’m going to show you how to utilize structured data in order to boost SEO ratings. We work so hard on how to get reviews. And, we’re utilizing third-party applications in order to accomplish this. Google my business pages, Yelp, other types of review platforms, business pages, or search indexes.

And, we’ll make sure that we’re leveraging those reviews to reduce the amount of friction in our sales processes. Also, it helps out when we’re talking about converting customers online.

It’s also your online asset in order to convert more customers and attract more of your dream customer. So, I’m going to show you this on the actual RazoRSharp Networks website. And, will talk about how structured data works and what it looks like. Structured data is what the search engines utilize to determine what type of information from your website. Is it relevant or important and from a local marketing standpoint, we can optimize this content on a regular basis. So, I’m going to actually take you into the WordPress admin area.

03:15 – Schema & Structured Data For WP Settings

And, I’m going to take you to the Settings tab of our structured data plugin. This is a free plugin that you can get its schema and structured data for WordPress or WP. Then, do a search in the WordPress egos are the WordPress plugin for finding here on WordPress. And, you can find this plugin. It’s how to structure your WordPress site so that you can show up and search a little bit more effectively. If you’re utilizing an HTML site or some other type of framework just leave a comment in the box. And, I’ll steer you in the right direction in regards to similar functionality. But, for the sake of this training, we’re going to be utilizing WordPress. Also, the schema structured data for the WP plugin in order to accomplish that. So, first and foremost, you get that installed.

If you don’t know how to do that, you’re going to go to Plugins will let that load real quick. On your WordPress site, you’ll go to the actual plugins page. As I can see here, everything is running really, really slow. We’ve had some problems either with network connectivity or something like that. So, you’ll come to the WordPress plugin, select Add new, and do a search for the plugin. You’ll find the Login right here, the schema markup Go ahead and I’ve already installed this on this site. And, we install this for all of our customers, because it’s a very powerful plugin. But, go ahead and install that plugin on your site. You would click through that, follow the installation wizard, and get that installed. Now, once you have it installed on your site, you’re gonna have some settings to come in and configure.

General Settings – website Search Appearances – get reviews on your websites

So, you’ll go to the structure data tab, on the Quick Launch menu on the left-hand side. Go into Settings then just start filling out these settings. Your general settings are going to be about your company. So, you might have an About Us page, an overview page, or something like that. If you have a contact page, go ahead and enter it into your contact page as well. For our website, of course, all the content is on our homepage. So, go ahead and slack us website schema on the homepage instruction search boxes as well. Also, utilize breadcrumbs and on the initial settings, make the correct menu that you’re utilizing. Go to appearance and then menus and then you can take a look at what menu you’re utilizing. So, this gives the structure data plugin. And, it’s all the information that they need to create the structure data.

And, that they’re going to provide to the search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, and things of this nature. So, you can structure your website information and data correctly. It can be crawled more effectively. In addition, we go into the Knowledge Graph and we’re going to fill out all the information on our company. What type of company it is. If it’s an organization or a person if it’s a corporation, and airline, there are a lot of different categories. In regards to the organization type, of course, your organization name. And, I’m going to show you how all this pans out at the very end of the training. It’s the actual organization’s legal name, which I don’t have in there currently. So, I’m going to add that the URL contact types contact number URL. I’m going to put in their missing information here.

How To Get Reviews To Show Up On Your Websites – Search Appearances

So, your contact URL for support services, contact URLs, all the important or pertinent information for your company. Again, it’s going to structure the data on the backend of your website and give it the necessary tags. Then, make it crawlable from the search engine, so it can be crawled more easily. You’re putting your social media profiles there as well. And, this is just going to link and make everything congruent on the back end. So, that’s the Knowledge Graph. But, those are the primary settings. It’s just kind of the company’s information links to your social media and your contact information. All relevant and important information when people are searching for your company.

08:24 – Structure Data & Review Aggregation

But, where this module gets started this plugin gets really powerful is in the actual reviews section. A lot of people spend time on reviews gathering reviews from third-party applications like Google My Business. We have Google reviews, Airbnb Angie’s List a booking.com. Regardless, what industry you’re in, you can utilize structured data and this plugin to aggregate your reviews from third-party applications. And, present those reviews on your website so that they begin to show up on search appearances. It means that when somebody searches for your company, your brand and it’s coming up on a search appearance. And, it’s going to show up with the structure data associated with it. As you can see, there’s a star rating. This is the structure data on here. That star rating that reviews the aggregate reviews for the individual sites and things of that nature.

So, that’s what you want to show up your website reviews when people search for your company. It’s because it’s a buying indicator for individuals when they’re doing searches. And, it’ll help the sales process and people are doing research on your company on your local business. It’ll give you an edge over your competition if you show up in search of structured data. That’s pretty properly formulated with your name, address, phone number, your support number, your support links, and social media links. And also reviews your actual real estate on the search page. Or, the SERP is going to be larger than your competition, which will give you more visibility. Again, this works across many different applications. Regardless of, if you’re using Facebook, Expedia, Foursquare, or any of these applications here. You can get that as an add-on.

Ways on how to integrate your reviews – show up your website reviews

Actually, there are a couple of different ways that you can integrate your reviews. You can upload reviews via CSV. If you have a CSV file, that you’re keeping all your reviews, maybe you’re gathering those reviews on your website. But, make sure that they’re optimized for search and they’re properly formatted in regards to structured data. You can also utilize the box, Google reviews, which is what we encourage all of our customers to use initially. Now, if you’re in some third party, I mean, if you’re not utilizing Google reviews very heavily. Maybe, you’re in the travel industry or using Airbnb, or in your in the service industry, news Angeles. And, maybe your local service provider, or Etsy or Expedia or some of these other applications or websites.

I want you to figure out which ones that you’re associated with. And, I would primarily focus on Google first and foremost. But, if you’re utilizing any of these third-party applications, you can utilize the add-on in order to aggregate those reviews.

11:42 – Structure Data Google Review Integration

Now, for Google, you have to select that checkbox. Then, get a Google API key. There’s a link right there and we’ll open that in a new link. This will bring you to the console for the Google API.

Our social media links, addresses, image locations, and things of that nature. We can look at all the rich snippets of information that we’ve just created.

And, our aggregate review results, description, and all information. So, this is what the search engines actually see when they crawl the site. Once we test good with that rich Snippet tool, this is what the page looks like. Again, I’ll utilize this tool and include a link to this tool in the description along with the actual plugin.
