Schema Markup for Financial Institutions: SEO for Banks, Credit Unions, etc.

What Is Schema?

Schema markup is a form of micro data which allows Google to create rich snippets for its index.

Why Do You Need Schema?

Schema.org markups help index and rank your website better in Google’s results pages (SERPs). It helps with SEO (search engine optimization), CRO (conversion rate optimization) and CTR (click-through rates).
