WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup – Schema / Structured Data / Rich Snippet / SEO Markup

Description

Comprehensive and accurate Schema / Structured Data / SEO markup for Google — including images, videos, organization (publisher), person (author and co-authors), product variations, product ratings, recipe details, event information, collection pages, and much more.

Customized Schema markup and optimization features for Pinterest — Pinterest does not (currently) read the preferred JSON-LD format. WPSSO and its WPSSO JSON extension include special provisions to provide unique Schema meta tags for Pinterest, along with methods to avoid conflicts between incompatible Pinterest and Facebook Open Graph meta tags.

Select a different Schema than BlogPosting for AMP webpages.

Adds comments and threaded replies to Schema CreativeWork markup and its sub-types (Article, BlogPosting, WebPage, etc.) for better Google SEO ranking.

Include JSON-LD markup for WooCommerce products — including images, variations (weight, size, color, etc), reviews, ratings, and more (Pro version).

Prerequisite — WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup is an extension for the WPSSO plugin, which automatically generates complete and accurate meta tags + Schema markup from your content for social media optimization (SMO) and SEO.

Essential add-on for the WPSSO Core plugin

This is an essential add-on for the excellent WPSSO Core plugin. Adds new fields and options that Google and Bing like for better SEO — even the free version. No performance hits or conflicts that I’ve found. Spend a few minutes to optimize this add-on’s settings. Then watch your SERPs improve. Outstanding plugin.

Insanely good support. 10/10

Same review I gave for the main WPSSO plugin…. This is my first time reviewing a plugin. I’m a mid-level WordPresser (not a pro by any means) and never felt the urge to comment on a plugin as I don’t necessarily always know what the shortcomings may be from a coding standpoint. But my experience with this plugin developer blew me away. I’ve never seen anything like it.

The plugin itself (and possibly some extensions) automatically inserts all the correct markup for every major social media platform. I faced a very particular conflict with the caching system of my host WPengine not interacting properly with Pinterest. This was not a problem with the plugin but JS stuck with it for several days doing diagnostics and updating the WPSSO plugins to work around the caching issue. He communicates promptly and goes beyond the call of duty to make it work for you.

10/10

Crazy good!

This plugin is one of my favorites! JS aggressively develops and improves this suite of plugins, continuously improving and adding features – with great customer support to boot! Highly recommended to improve your SEO for all kinds of JSON schemas!

Great Plugin for Rich Snippet Markup

I have used alot of plugins in my time using WordPress but this plugin is just different in how its created.

Ver slick and professional plugin that is laden with some of the most in depth knowledge in their FAQ etc and i have already seen the benefits of using the plugin and the additional bits and bobs that add extra functionality.
