What is microdata and structured data?
Structured data helps search engines properly categorize content, pages, and information. As search engines index content, structured data pairs names with values. Microdata is one type of structured data, which uses code standards outlined at schema.org
that is able to be used with HTML5. Microdata
is a new HTML5 standard for marking up visible page content with structured data.
How structured data enhances results displayed at Google and other major search engines:
The structured data markup code within pages of websites helps Google's algorithms have a better understanding of the types of products, information, services, and content listed within your website. Google uses the structured data to feature pages from your website within search results so that they stand out, compared to websites that don't utilize structured data.
New search features have been made available at Google and other major search engines because of the enhancements provided by structured data.
