35 Minutes | How Working With Schema Saved Our SEO Project
There comes a moment near the beginning of every earnest SEO project when reality hits. If we think of your ecom platform as a car, you have to drive the car you have right now, as opposed to the one you’d like to have. That fully optimised one will take longer to create than you were initially led to believe.
What do you do when so-called quick wins turn out to be long term nice-to-haves, through no fault of your own, but simply that dev resource is at a premium and you’re down the pecking order because of other departments jumping the queue? What trade-offs do you make to deliver success?
Andrew McGarry and Taylor Laporte discuss how to use schema markup to improve KPIs while you’re waiting on developer resources to become available.
This sessions covers the visibility battle for sneaker brands such as NIKE, adidas, and others while asking why companies don’t put as much brand effort into the quality of organic results as paid media results – and how schema can fix that!
