What is Schema.org Markup?

Schema.org structured data markup is information that is provided to search engines that enables them to display rich search snippets.  These rich snippets in search results give searchers more information about your website, organization, or content.

This structured data markup has become very important to search engines. Currently, Google, Bing and Yandex support the newest JSON-LD markup that we generate.

All in One SEO Pack outputs structured data markup on Posts, Pages, Categories, Tags and the search results page.  We also support custom post types and custom taxonomies via our API using a filter.

Structured Data Markup in All in One SEO Pack

All in One SEO Pack outputs the JSON-LD markup in the HEAD of your pages, posts, categories, tags and search results page.  You can view this by looking at the page source code, where you see the green All in One SEO Pack line you’ll find code wrapped in script tags like this type=”application/ld+jsonclass=”aioseop-schema“>{}.
