WPSSO Place / Location and Local Business Meta – aka Local SEO for Facebook, Google, and Pinterest

Description

Let Pinterest, Facebook and Google know about your location(s):

Include Pinterest Rich Pin Place, Facebook / Open Graph Location, and Google Local Business / Local SEO meta tags in your webpages.

The WPSSO Place / Location and Local Business Meta add-on can be used in two different ways:

  • To provide location information for the webpage content.

  • To provide location information for an Organization, which in turn may be related to the content (ie. the content Publisher, event Organizer, etc.).

The Free version of WPSSO PLM can add location information to the main entity (aka the primary Schema type) of a blog front page.

If you’re using a static front page, or would like to include location information for the content of other posts / pages, you’ll need the Pro version.
