Must For SEO!

This plugin is a must if you care about SEO. It has also responsive support. What else you need?

The Worst Plugin Ever

this thing sucks… the markup it outputs is full of errors… i.e. availableLanguage should be one of English, ENG, en, en-US, while your Language Object is not loaded, and the app adds a link instead of a language name, and the same happens for all second degree (or lower) children, so either you fix this in your App, or stop selling it. I bet people giving good reviews have no idea what a schema.org markup should be. I even watched your videos, and even there you get a markup with errors, and give it as good, but without showing a result from Google SD Testing Tool (or other tools). Please stop intoxicating the internet with junk (talking about SD with errors)! Fix that App, or take it out of the market, please!

You have to pay (and really a lot) if you want functionalities

After watching 4 or 5 video tutorials I realized that the plugin doesn’t automatically read any of the informations provided in the wordpress database unless you buy the premium version. And it allows you to manage just 10 pages in the free version…. it’s really annoying.

My website’s schema now goes to 9000!

Before this plugin, I used to think Schema markup was a bunch of independent snippets pasted around your website for an added search engine visibility boost.

This plugin takes Schema markup to 11, to a point where I had to re-learn how it’s actually supposed to work. It took me a few hours to get everything setup as their video tutorials suggest, but they were very clear and easy to follow along with. There were some wonky errors on setup (like not being able to define a City as a service area since I already attached it to my business address. I got around this by setting it as an Administrative Area, hope that was correct).

After a bit of troubleshooting on my own, the schema on my homepage (haven’t setup all pages yet) is error-free and chock full of interesting microdata…or metadata, whichever is more correct! Now hoping/waiting for the Knowledge Panel social icons to show up under my business when searched for in Google.

Now, to be fair, I just set everything up on one page. We’ll see how many pages I can work with before the free version blocks me. I don’t think I’d ever pay $37/month for this service, but if they came down in price for an entry level package (something like websites under 50 pages, $5/month), I could see myself subscribing for the convenience. Also, I would like to see a knowledge base in text in addition to the videos. When trying to figure things out, it was a lot harder to sort through 5 videos on one topic and then scrubbing through each rather than searching and finding an article covering my question.

Anyhow, great plugin overall – thanks for all your hard work!
