2019 Structured Data for WordPress Training – $199

Structured Data

WordPress is the most used, most popular content management system (CMS) out there. And, its plugins come with a bunch of structured data "help" built in. Sometimes that's good. But very often it most seriously isn't good.

Question: do you know the difference?

Well, you better. Because Google expects you to. That is, if you're expecting good rankings and aiming for the coveted zero positions – featured snippets, answers, etc.

The problem is that more often than note the structured data markup code added by plugins or themes is bloated by default — not a little bit, but seriously (and also dangerously) bloated. For starters, there's code for page elements that are very unlikely to be relevant to your site.

In other cases, your WordPress theme or plugin adds structured data markup site-wide when you really-really do NOT want it to do that! ...anyway, you get the idea.

So, safely getting rid of all this built-in code bloat, while making sure that you also have the right stuff (with spoonfuls of secret sauce) to give you that competitive edge, is a VERY big deal! ...because, the structured data markup "help" that WordPress gives you by default could very-well actually be sinking your rankings!

So, here comes the Structured Data for WordPress Training Session riding to your rescue.

Training Session Run Time: 1 hour, 28 minutes

Within this session our SEN superstar, John Heard, teaches you the advanced strategies for solving the many issues you'll encounter when editing and adding Advanced Schema Markup to your WordPress site.

John shows you exactly how most of the WordPress themes and plugins automatically add obsolete, unwanted and even dangerous, penalty-worthy incorrect markup. Not only do these built-in problems cause critical errors with Google Structured Data Tests and Google Search Console, John says they'll also make you "look like a dodo" for using them.

Course highlights include...

  • How to find and remove unwanted Theme markup.

  • How to add back in only the specific markup that you actually DO want.
  • Which specific schema markup language you should be using.
  • The most important schema markup to focus on for getting rich results/rich snippets or an improvement in rankings.
  • How to get a thumbnail image displayed alongside your search listing.
  • The Ultimate WordPress Plug-in Guide — John's favorite list of plug-ins that can generate your schema markup for you!
  • Troubleshooting your schema markup.
