What Can schema.Org Offer The Web Manager?

Download to read offline

Slides for workshop presentation given at IWMW (Institutional Web Management Workshop) .

Abstract: Schema.org is a major new initiative supported by Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Bing and Yandex with the aim of "making it easier for people to find the right web pages". It is a simplified profile of microdata, a means of embedding metadata in web pages that is aligned with HTML5. It differs significantly from previous attempts at providing resource descriptions for web pages to aid discovery, such as various metadata schema, microformats and RDFa in that it has support from the major search engines plus W3C, making it both standards-based and with vendor support.

This workshop will investigate relevance of schema.org to UK Further and Higher Education Institutions. For example what might it offer for the description of organisations, events, courses and resources. There will be an emphasis on what practically can be achieved now, what might be achieved in the near future, what is necessary to get there, and what are the pitfalls and misconceptions to avoid.

  28. 28. Schema.org is a joint effort, in the spirit of sitemaps.org, to improve the web by creating a structured data markup schema supported by major search engines. On-page markup helps search engines understand the information on web pages and provide richer search results. A shared markup vocabulary makes easier for webmasters to decide on a markup schema and get the maximum benefit for their efforts. Search engines want to make it easier for people to find relevant information on the web. Markup can also enable new tools and applications that make use of the structure.

  49. 49. Rich snippets not appearing In general, Google won't display any content in rich snippets that is not visible to human user. It can be tempting to add all the content relevant for a rich snippet in one place on the page, mark it up, and then hide the entire block of text using techniques like display:none, value-title, css etc. Don't do it! Google will ignore content that isn't visible to human users, so you should mark up the text that visitors will see on your web pages. http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1093493#hidden

Slides for workshop presentation given at IWMW (Institutional Web Management Workshop) . Abstract: Schema.org is a major new initiative supported by Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Bing and Yandex with the aim of "making it easier for people to find the right web pages". It is a simplified profile of microdata, a means of embedding metadata in web pages that is aligned with HTML5. It differs significantly from previous attempts at providing resource descriptions for web pages to aid discovery, such as various metadata schema, microformats and RDFa in that it has support from the major search engines plus W3C, making it both standards-based and with vendor support. This workshop will investigate relevance of schema.org to UK Further and Higher Education Institutions. For example what might it offer for the description of organisations, events, courses and resources. There will be an emphasis on what practically can be achieved now, what might be achieved in the near future, what is necessary to get there, and what are the pitfalls and misconceptions to avoid.
