    I would really like to do everything possible to get our product pages showing up with review stars in search engines, and get the other SEO benefits of proper schema markup. We only have “buy now” buttons on our product pages, so I’m assuming all schema markup needs to be added (we don’t use WooCommerce, etc).

    I am trying to grasp how schema markup works – I have been going through plugin documentation and searching through previous support topics for this plugin. I’ve also been researching google’s docs:

    https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/review-snippet

    So far, it seems these are the needed steps:

    1. Set default schema markup settings to “product” and other default settings.
    2. On product page, use custom fields to add product specific markup such as low price, high price, and default image.

    But I’m not sure about several details relating to schema markup:

    1. I’m confused about Reviews Summary. Should I include this shortcode (along with review shortcode) on product pages for the best schema benefits? Also, should I use the “schema option” in the reviews summary shortcode?

    2. If it’s not necessary to use the Reviews Summary, is it recommended to use schema=”true” in the shortcode of for the reviews?

    3. On the Google “Review snippet” page, I see schema requirements such as ratingCount. Does you plugin automatically add these required values?

    4. I did find the “adding additional values” function in your plugin documentation. Do you have any suggestions for what values are best to add for the best schema benefits? For example, one of our products is a course. Should I add a separate schema type for this product (and set to “course” instead of “product”)?

    5. We use Yoast SEO and have breadcrumbs disabled, but are there any other Yoast settings I need to be concerned about?

    I know I’ve asked a lot of questions. I’m just trying to determine the best method for setting up this plugin to get the best schema markup benefits. Maybe you already have these suggestions detailed somewhere else?

    Thanks for any clarification.
