I've recently started using Schema Pro more to implement schema onto my site, does anyone have any knowledge with this plugin? Can it hurt my site if done incorrectly or is it even the best route to take when trying to implement schema?
Using multiple types of structured data on a page is fine. However, keep in mind that Google may not be able to display all types together, so if you have a preference regarding a specific rich result type, try to focus on that type.
One problem that I commonly see with many schema markups is that they use the typical LocalBusiness type. There’s nothing wrong with that in itself, but it doesn’t tell search engines much about what type of business it is or what it does. After all, a local business could describe a store, a plumbing company, a mechanic shop, a bowling alley, and so on.
Since the purpose of using structured data markup is to help search engines better understand your business, the first thing you should do is select the schema type that best describes your business. And there are many to choose from.
Hi, i also have Schema pro plugin. I have noted results for my recipes are shown in SERPS. Is it too bad not show Recipes Instructions twice inside the post? I have this advice from Google Search Console and also when i Test Rich Snippets.I've never used that one. Why did you go directly to a paid plugin or this specific one, if I may ask? There are a number of free plugins (many with the option of additional features in a pro version) listed at WordPress.org, including the Yoast SEO plugin which does several other things to help with SEO on WP sites:
For me, the benefit of using plugins, free or paid, is
For those reasons, I would always recommend that you use plugins listed at WordPress.org.
- WordPress.org vets their plugins for compatibility and security vulnerabilities and will remove any that do not comply with their standards; and
- You get access to reviews from real world people using the plugin on real libe WP sites.
Note: you probably shouldn't be running a standalone schema plugin if you have another one installed that already adds that feature.
Thanks for your answer my friend! Adding the schema manually should had been a lot of job! I've found Schema pro works very well with Astra theme. Other plugin i'll be testing for another webiste, will be WP Recipe maker!If used according to Google's structured data guidelines you should be fine. I just had a client that used Schema Pro and it didn't work with their theme so I removed it and manually added the schema.
