What is Schema, and how will adding it to your website help drive results? Thrive Creative Group breaks down all you need to know about the benefits of Schema


Schema helps search engines understand the content present on a page. It’s a structured data vocabulary that helps search engines understand if there is a survey, list, or image, helping bring up the relevant search results. These visible and prominent results are called ‘rich results’ powered by Schema.

  • An increase in CTRs can result from an extensive rich snippet due to schema. 
  • Click-through rates, time on site, and bounce rates are factors to judge your SEO.

Provides Extensive Rich Snippets
