JSON-LD for SEO
Get more organic search traffic from Google and show the product details directly in the search results. Use JSON-LD and Schema.org markup to enrich your snippets.
The JSON-LD for SEO add-on provides the organized and structured data for your store using Schema.org & JSON-LD markup. If you use this markup, search engines like Google can pick up this data and present it in an enhanced way. As this type of structured data is often used for Rich Snippets, the add-on provides the most effective way to get such snippets for your store. And this leads to increased searchability of your store, products or blog across the web.
Thanks to the add-on your search results can be supplemented with:
Brief store description;
"out of stock" or "in stock" labels;
Links to social networks.
Why do you need Schema.org data? Marking up your products, company, website, and blog with structured data in the Schema.org vocabulary makes your site instantly comprehensible by search engines. This means that they can tell exactly what every part of your site is about.
