Hey everyone!

Hope you guys have a good time. I am currently adding schema to one of my websites. Usually I either use "organization" or "LocalBusiness" but since this is a Service Area Business, I was wondering what to add. Any ideas? Should I maybe use the LocalBusiness but without the street name?

Thanks for any help!

BTW great Forum, I am pretty new here but I really enjoy it!

I have a service area client with a bunch of business types in their schema. My gut tells me they should just have one, yes?


They also list out a lot of serviceTypes.

serviceTypeAppliance Repair
serviceTypeHVAC Repair
serviceTypeWater Heater Installation
serviceTypeWater Heater Repair
serviceTypeAir Conditioning Installation
serviceTypeAir Conditioning Repair
serviceTypeHeating Repair
serviceTypeHeating Installation
serviceTypeBoiler Installation

serviceTypeGenerator Installation
serviceTypeGenerator Repair
serviceTypeHome Improvement
serviceTypeElectrical Panel Upgrades

They also have a bunch of zip codes listed (a lot more than I pasted here) under PostalAddress. Again my gut tells me @type should be Service not place and having too many zip codes might be hurting them instead of helping them.
