  3. Definitions @MatthewJbrown
  4. Semantic Search Engine Optimization (Semantic SEO) is the use of techniques from the Semantic Web technology stack for: 1.sending detailed information about the meaning of your page content to search engines and other data consumers, 2. in a way that can be easily processed by computers. Good definition of Semantic SEO: http://bit.ly/kUW0fJ
  5. Structured Data = Data organized by a markup language and a vocabulary. Can be organized and searched by machines. Linked Data = Publishing structured data so it can be accessed at a URI Semantic Web = The web of globally accessible, interlinked data entities RDF = Resource Definition Framework. This is a data model that establishes entity relationships using ‘triples’ Other notable parts of the ‘Semantic Web Technology Stack’
  6. http://www.seoskeptic.com/seo-semantic-web/ Great overview of the Semantic Web here Example of RDF triples describing entities. This is how semantic web data is defined.
  7. Schema: A specific vocabulary So what’s schema.org? Microdata? RDFa? Good primer here: http://www.seomoz.org/blog/schema-examples
  8. Choose your weapon. Which language and vocabulary fits your situation?
  9. There are many languages and vocabularies for structured data. Schema is just one.
  10. Current Status of “semantic SEO”: Google, Bing, Facebook @MatthewJbrown
  11. @MatthewJbrown
  12. OUCH! Google is doing more displacing of organic results. Deal with it: mark up your data
  13. Rich snippets are everywhere now, even spammy ones
  14. There are more options everyday to increase SERP real estate
  15. Rich Snippets can take up 30 days or more. Don’t panic. Study at: http://bit.ly/P6pF4n
  16. Track CTR changes for keywords that get rich snippets to measure ROI
  17. Google Knowledge Graph
  18. Look for what markup gets into Knowledge Graph
  19. Knowledge Graph Carousel (for ‘multiple’ searches like albums)
  20. There are multiple sources in the carousels as well
  21. Markup type: (Keep a running spreadsheet)
  22. Google Plus Knowledge Graph – Great article at http://bit.ly/PrA7Sy
  23. Open Graph @MatthewJbrown
  24. Just about every ‘entity’ under the sun is in Facebook’s graph
  25. Straight from Facebook at TC Disrupt: http://tcrn.ch/OolpA4
  26. Open Graph: Huge graph of semantic data. HUGE.
  27. Guardian’s FB traffic eclipsed Google traffic at one point: http://bit.ly/GFo3sg
  28. http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraphprotocol/ Wonder why services like Socialcam and Viddy suddenly exploded?
  29. Open Graph Schema Protip: Use Open Graph Markup in addition to schema, etc.
  30. Using OG can control how your snippets, images, and description appears in Facebook and other networks
