WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup – Structured Data / Rich Snippet / Google Rich Cards / Pinterest Rich Pins

Description

A WPSSO Core add-on to provide Schema JSON-LD / SEO markup for Articles, Events, Local Business, Products, Recipes, Reviews + many more.

Adds comprehensive and accurate Schema JSON-LD markup for Google Rich Cards & Bing — including image objects / SEO, video objects / SEO, local business SEO, organization / publisher, person / author and co-authors, complete and very extensive eCommerce product markup, product variations, product ratings, aggregate ratings, reviews, recipe information, event details, collection pages, profile pages, customized property values, and much, much more (see the Quick List of Features bellow for Free / Pro version details).

Includes the complete content text (along with a description text), comments, reviews, and their replies to the Schema CreativeWork markup and its sub-types (Article, BlogPosting, Recipe, Review, WebPage, etc.) for even better Google & Bing SEO ranking. 😉

Allows you to select a different Schema than “BlogPosting” for all your AMP pages.

Includes special markup and optimization features for Pinterest, as Pinterest does not (currently) read the Schema JSON-LD format — WPSSO Core and the WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup (aka WPSSO JSON) add-on include special provisions to include unique Schema meta tags for Pinterest, along with methods to prevent conflicts between incompatible Pinterest / Facebook Open Graph meta tag values.

Provides complete markup for WooCommerce products and all variations (Pro version) — including product images, product variations, custom product attributes (weight, size, color, material, etc), product reviews, product ratings, and much more.

WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup is incredibly fast and coded for performance — WPSSO Core and its add-ons 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 add-ons are also fully tested and compatible with PHP v7.x (PHP v5.4 or better required).

WPSSO Core Plugin Prerequisite

WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup (aka WPSSO JSON) is an add-on for the WPSSO Core plugin — which creates complete & accurate meta tags and Schema markup from your existing content for social sharing, Social Media Optimization (SMO), Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Google Rich Cards, Pinterest Rich Pins, etc.

The Free add-on works with either the Free or Pro version of WPSSO Core. The WPSSO JSON Pro add-on uses many WPSSO Core Pro features and requires an active and licensed WPSSO Core Pro plugin.

Excellent Plugin

Bought this as a bolt-on to the main one for use with our products (in particular variables)

Great plugin, very complex with lots of features. Support second to none, practically instant response and speedy resolution to any issues.

Couldn’t recommend more – great plugin!

Excelente plugin para SEO

Todo mundo que leva a sério SEO semântico precisa marcar o código do seu blog. Eu acho que o melhor plugin que eu já usei (e uso na versão free) é esse. Ele me livra de ficar marcando todo post que eu faço na mão e tem sido de grande ajuda.

Best Plugin and Support!!

This plugin is heaven sent. I know little about SSO and this has taken care of everything. The support makes this an even better plugin to have. Keep up the great work!

Great plugin and support

After looking into several plugins that work with woocommerce variable products, I’ve bought this one. And I am very impressed. Everything works out of the box, but it’s possible to tweak it just like you want.

I had one issue with a microdata condition setting, the support was awesome. Very quick reactions and in the end the author made a new development version which fixed everything. So I definitely advice this.
