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

Description

Provides location / local business information for your website, business, and/or content.

Let Pinterest, Facebook and Google know about your locations — WPSSO PLM includes Pinterest Rich Pin / Schema Place, Facebook / Open Graph Location, and Google / Schema Local Business meta tags in your webpages.

How Do I Use It?

The WPSSO PLM extension can be used in two different ways:

  • To provide location information for the content of the current webpage.
  • To provide location information for an Organization, which in turn is related to the content (for example, the content publisher). To assign location information to an Organization, you will also need to use the WPSSO ORG extension.

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.

Prerequisite — WPSSO Place / Location and Local Business Meta 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.
