This month Patrick Jackson will be giving an introduction to Google Structured Data (also known as schema markup and rich snippets) and some ways you can easily implement structured data on your website.

Schema markup is code (semantic vocabulary) that you put on your website to help the search engines return more informative results for users. Examples include reviews, ratings, event details, enhanced product listings, and even improving how your blog author details are identified on the page.

Some reading you might like to do before MJUG includes this article by Neil Patel on How to Boost Your SEO by Using Schema Markup: neilpatel.com/blog/get-started-using-schema/

After the introduction to the concepts, Patrick will be demonstrating three ways you can incorporate structured data on your Joomla website:

- putting template overrides in to display rich content on various fields and custom fields on the site.

- using Regular Labs ReReplacer to create rules that apply across the site to reformat particular content to include tags

- Using Tassos' Google Structured Data extension to have structured data inserted across your site automatically.

We hope to see you there. Pizza and catchup from 6:30pm. Presentation starts at 7:00pm (also on Facebook Live via fb.me/joomlaau)
