How many schema types do we support

Currently, we support 16 schema types in our plugin which you can use as per your website content.

Here is the list of Schema types with a short description:

  1. Article: Adding Article schema to your blog, and article page can enhance your appearance in Google Search results with rich snippets.
  2. AudioObject: Markup your Audio content with structured data to make Google Search an entry point for discovering and listening audio. You can provide details such as the description, thumbnail URL, upload date, and time duration.
  3. Blog Posting: Adding BlogPosting schema to your blog, can enhance your appearance in Google Search results.
  4. Course: Mark up your course lists with structured data so prospective students find you through Google Search. You can provide details including the course name, who are offering it, and a short description.
  5. Event: Mark up your organized events so that users can discover events through Google Search results. You can add all types of events through markup — from performances by famous artists to a neighborhood salsa class. Adding markup to your events makes it easier for users to discover and attend your event.
  6. LocalBusiness: When users search for LocalBusinesses schema on Google Search or Maps, Search results may display a prominent Knowledge Graph card with details about a business that matched the query. When users query for a type of business, such as a restaurant, they may see a carousel of listings hosted by restaurant listing providers.
  7. NewsArticle: Adding NewsArticle schema to your blog, and article page can enhance your appearance in Google Search results.
  8. Product: Add markup to your product pages so Google can provide detailed product information in rich Search results — including Google Images. Users can see price, availability, and review ratings right on Search results.
  9. Q&A: Q&A Pages are web pages that contain data in a question and answer format, which is one question followed by its answers. For content that represents a question and its answers, you can mark up your data with the Q&A schema markup.
  10. Review: A review snippet is a short excerpt of a review or a rating from a review website, usually an average of the combined rating scores from many reviewers. When Google finds valid reviews or rating markup, we may show a rich snippet that includes stars and other summary info from reviews or ratings.
  11. Recipe: Markup your recipe content with structured data to provide rich results and host-specific lists for your recipes, such as reviewer ratings, cooking and preparation times, and nutrition information. Your page is eligible for different features depending on how you add structured data to your page:
  12. Service: Services schema markup is the most specific class to define a service a business offers.
  13. SoftwareApplication: Mark up SoftwareApplication information in the body of a web page to better display your app details in Google Search results.
  14. Tech Article: Adding TechArticle schema to your blog, and article page can enhance your appearance in Google Search results.
  15. VideoObject: Markup your video content with structured data to make Google Search an entry point for discovering and watching videos. You can provide details such as the description, thumbnail URL, upload date, and duration.
  16. HowTo:  HowTo is “an instruction that explains how to achieve a result by performing a sequence of steps.” You can use HowTo structured data to mark up articles that come in a how-to form, but that are not recipes. If there is an element of consumption, it should be a recipe.
  17. TechArticle: Adding TechArticle schema to your blog, and Techarticle page can enhance your appearance in Google Search results with rich snippets.
  18. Event: Event Schema is the number one solution to enhance your event posts with the right structured data. Google Structured data for the event is one of the most important aspects of the search strategy. It gives you a highly visible position in the Google search rankings.
  19. JobPosting: You can improve the job seeking experience by adding JobPosting structured data to your job posting web pages. Adding structured data makes your job postings eligible to appear in a special user experience in Google Search results.
  20. Book: Book actions make Google Search an entry point for discovering books and authors, enabling Search users to quickly buy the books that they find directly from Search results. As a provider of e-books, you can provide a feed of data to Google using the structured data schema.
  21. Event: Mark up your organized events so that users can discover events through Google Search results and other Google products like Google Maps.
  22. WebPage: Every web page is implicitly assumed to be declared to be of type WebPage, so the various properties about that webpage, such as breadcrumb may be used.
  • You will find this option in the WordPress dashboard -> Structured Data -> Schema Types -> click on Add schema Type and select the option as per your requirement like below the screenshot.

    1. Hi Asen Stoyanchev,

      Our support developer has already contacted you regarding your website URL access to debug the issue at your end. Could you send us the details so that we can fix the issue as soon as possible?

  5. Your plugin says at the WP repository that it supports 33 different Schema types, then the link to this page, where it shows only 16. Will you be adding FAQ schema as a type? Your answers to similar comments above don’t make it clear…

    We have a site that is not using any FAQ schema plugin right now, and just has multiple FAQ pages using manually created FAQs, with an H2 for the question, and the answers in plain text.

    Will this plugin be of any use to us, or shall we just add the FAQ schema manually?
