Structured data is a standard way to annotate your content so machines (search engine bots) can understand it. As Google stated in 2012, “structured data is becoming an increasingly important part of the web ecosystem used to allow websites to highlight specific types of content in search results, marking up content using industry-standard formats and schemas.”
Additional evidence of the use of structured data is displayed in this image screenshot of Google’s SERP Patent. The Abstract for Maintaining Search Context reads, “…wherein the links are all of the same entity type.”
Google’s search engine result page (SERP) patent refers to a process of using “entities” within specific areas of SERP page layout for various types of search context such as local pages, knowledge graph, ecommerce etc.
Vocabularies organize knowledge and are building blocks, whereas ontologies are more complex. We like the video produced by Spry Inc. describing ontologies, here’s the basic summary…
“An ontology is a model which represents knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain. An ontology also captures the relationships between these concepts. An ontology is a form of knowledge management, it captures the knowledge within an organization as a model. This model can then be queried by users to answer complex questions and display relationships across an enterprise.”
Ontologies capture data in a way that allows these relationships to become visible. We can use ontologies to define things that search engines (machines) want to understand. We can build your ontology, and you gain a serious competitive advantage.
Organic search results are being displaced by content-rich displays known as knowledge panels commonly referred to as the Knowledge Graph. This is a shift from searching over documents such as web pages, to searching over data now assembled as the Knowledge Graph.
Internal data quality is imperative. Knowledge Graphs contain information about entities and their relationships to one another. Google wants to recognize a search as a distinct entity rather than a string of keywords.
When you want your Brand and brand messaging to be accurate and “findable” in search results, search engines need to be able to understand what entities are on your web page/s. Search engines extract entity information from your content. We align and map from your website to external ontologies and vocabularies used by search engines. These are trusted sources such as Freebase, Wikidata, Schema.org, Google product taxonomy, Linked Open Vocabularies and Linked Open Data.
