Schema WordPress Plugin for JSON-LD Structured Data

Google Structured Data has become an important SEO addition to every website since Google recommends the implementation of Schema.org markups to help its search engine to understand your content better, which leads to a better presentation in search results.

What is Schema?

Structured data refers to kinds of data with a high level of organization, such as information in a relational database. When information is highly structured and predictable, search engines can more easily organize and display it in creative ways. Structured data markup is a text-based organization of data that is included in a file and served from the web. It typically uses the schema.org vocabulary—an open community effort to promote standard structured data in a variety of online applications.

Structured data markup is most easily represented in JSON-LD format, which stands for JavaScript Object Notation for Linked Data.

Schema WordPress Plugin

Recently, I’ve been working on a new Schema and WordPress related project to bring an automated and easy way to implement JSON-LD markups to WordPress.

I believe that JSON-LD format will be the most popular among other types or schema (Microdata and RDFa that I’ve used in the past for AuthorhReview and WPRichSnippets plugins), hence Google recommend it since it’s easier to implement for developers and even non-novice people.

But, there will still someone out there who prefer to get this done for them, maybe in a form of an easy to setup and use WordPress plugin that does the job and gets updates.

Supported Structured Data

The plugin now supports Knowledge Graph, Site Search, and Schema for Article. I will be adding more cool features and schema types as we go.

Knowledge Graph

The Knowledge Graph is a knowledge base used by Google to enhance its search engine’s search results with semantic-search information gathered from a wide variety of sources.

The Schema plugin allow you to provide marketing information for your site for broader reach and recognition in Search results.

Site Search

Make content searches easier for your users by telling the Google crawlers that users can search your site directly from Search results.

Schema for Article

This has been added today, this feature will automatically insert schema for Article to every post.

Download The Schema Plugin

The good news is, I’ve released a new Schema WordPress plugin over at wordpress.org, which adds Schema in JSON-LD format in a very easy way, it’s a set it and forget it plugin.
