Improve SEO With Whisper’s Microformats and Microdata

Microformats and microdata are simple ways to label content to describe a specific type of information —for example, a review, an event, a product, a business, or a person. Each information type describes a specific type of item, such as a person, and event, or a review. For example, an event has the properties venue, starting time, name, and category.

Microformats and microdata are very important for SEO. They tell search engines more context for the type of information on a website and the way the site should be indexed and ranked. They also help search engines to create “rich snippets“, which display more information on the search result pages than traditional listings.
