The topic of structured data has a rapidly growing audience looking into options beyond “rich snippets”. But some webmasters, if not most, are not sure what to do next. Many have questions like “What are the benefits of publishing structured data?”, “Does it influence rankings?”, and “can its impact be measured?”.
The case study presented in this slide deck will answer these types of questions by telling the success story of a website that was semantically optimized by using schema.org and other protocols.
Details are provided on what was optimized, data showing semantically-enriched webpages generated substantially more search engine-referred traffic than non- or less-enriched control groups did, and insights gained by re-using structured data to measure its impact on search.
