WPSSO Place / Location and Local Business Meta for Pinterest Rich Pins, Facebook Open Graph, Google Rich Cards / Knowledge Graph / SEO

Description

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

Let Pinterest, Facebook and Google know about your locations:

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

Select a Job Location for the Schema Job Posting markup (WPSSO JSON Pro extension required).

WPSSO PLM 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 need to use the WPSSO ORG extension along with the WPSSO PLM 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.

WPSSO PLM is incredibly fast and coded for performance:

WPSSO Core and its extensions make full use of all available caching techniques (persistent / non-persistent object and disk caching), and load only the PHP library files and object classes they need, keeping their code small, fast, and light.

WPSSO Core and its extensions are fully tested and compatible with PHP v7.x (PHP v5.3 or better required).

WPSSO Core Plugin Prerequisite

WPSSO Place / Location and Local Business Meta is an extension for the WPSSO Core plugin — which creates complete & accurate meta tags and Schema markup from your content for social sharing, social media / SMO, search / SEO / rich cards, and more.

The WPSSO PLM Free extension works with either the Free or Pro version of WPSSO Core (Main Plugin).

The WPSSO PLM Pro extension uses many WPSSO Core Pro features, which requires an active and licensed WPSSO Core Pro plugin.
