3 Easy Ways To Add Schema Mark up To Your Website

I recommend using Json – LD where possible.

FREE Online Schema Generator

We can use one of the online schema generators to create the basic schema markup for your web pages. You need to provide some information like the type of markup you want to create, links to your social profiles, logo url etc.

Type

You can choose from:

  1. Local Business
    1. Select the type of your local business
  2. Person
  3. Product
  4. Event
  5. Organization
  6. Website

“Same As” for adding Social Profiles

Fill out the the rest of the fields. You can add all your social profiles in the fields labelled as “Same As”. This is where the knowledge graph extracts information about your social profiles.

Google recommends adding the following social profiles to your schema mark up

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • LinkedIn
  • Myspace
  • Pinterest
  • SoundCloud
  • Tumblr

Geo coordinates (latitude & longitude)

Once you have entered you logo URL, business description, Address, zip code you will need to enter your geo coordinates for locating your business. You could use a free tool http://en.mygeoposition.com/. You can also insert your google map URL.

Example: Schema Mark up

<script type=”application/ld+json”>

{

“@context”: “http://schema.org”,

“@type”: “Place”,

“geo”: {

“@type”: “GeoCoordinates”,

“latitude”: “40.75”,

},

“name”: “Empire State Building”

}
