With Schema.org you can structure your website with metadata and help search engines understanding your content. Think about Schema.org vocabulary as a “lingua franca” for search engines: a universal way used to describe web pages with structured data. Search Engines use that information to enrich the user experience on their results and to generate rich snippets (small data-driven widgets).
One of the latest introductions to the schema vocabulary is known as Actions, which focuses on actionable items on a website. While all the existing Schema.org markup is tailored around describing things – like people, organizations, events, and stuff like that – Schema.org is now expanding to include Actions, Potential Actions, and Entry Points: this will help websites “to describe the actions they enable and how these actions can be invoked.”
What are you going to learn?
In this free 45-minute webinar Umutcan Şimşek will show us how many Actions can be taken and modeled through Schema.org, more specifically representing some of the following use cases:
- Movies that can be watched, songs that can be listened
- Products that can be reviewed
- Events that can be RSVPed
- Reservations that can be confirmed/canceled
- Offers that can be saved
- Hotels that can reserve rooms
- Airlines that can find flights
