The Most Powerful SEO Tools Available
There is a built-in SEO tool for optimizing your pages and posts. The SEO tool analyzes your post and pages, and lets you know exactly what you need to change or fix for the best SEO optimization.
When you have videos on your site that are hosted by YouTube or Vimeo, Google does not index them as part of your site. When someone does a search and finds your video, they are directed to where the video is stored (which is YouTube or Vimeo, and not your website). That means you lose out on any SEO benefits.
The last thing you want is to send interested prospects away from your site. Hi-Fi’s Video SEO Sitemap feature gives Google the details of all videos on your site so they can be indexed correctly. The Video SEO feature applies the proper object & schema markup and Open Graph tags, so that Google sends visitors to your site instead of YouTube or Vimeo.
It also displays a video thumbnail in the search engine results, which means higher click-through rates and more traffic. You can even select the video thumbnail that’s displayed in the results.
Google Authorship gives authors credit for their work and is an important feature for any website.
- For searchers – provides credentials and builds trust
- For Authors and Publishers – builds credibility and branding
- Improves SEO
- Helps Google identify duplicate content
- Having an image next to the search results can also improve click through rates.
By associating your Google Plus profile with your content, Google will know what it belongs to you.
Hi-Fi has a built-in Authorship feature that makes setup easy. Learn More About Google Authorship
Social Open Graph Metadata
Open Graph makes it easy for social networks to recognize your content. It enables you to integrate your web pages into the social graph – and connect user activity on your site – with user activity on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
By adding the Open Graph metadata to your website, your pages show up richly across social sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus in user profiles, search results and in News Feed. The Open Graph tags also allow you to control your brand message throughout the social web.
In addition, social shares from your site send signals to search engines, connecting shared links from your site. Learn More About The Social Graph
