    Re: Business Multi Location Schema Markup Help

    Well, I've never been a big proponent of marking up the address on every single page of a website, simply because it seems like overkill. The exception to that would be if you were marking up different pages that highlight a different product or service that the business offers. In that case, you would also want to mark up who is offering the service and where they are located. It won't hurt to have the addresses marked up in the footer, but it won't necessarily help much either.

    But since that's how everything is currently formatted, you can just leave it as it is. So I would recommend that you mark up the main office location with either schema.org/Organization or schema.org/LocalBusiness and the sales office with the "branchOf" property. But because of the way that schema.org has things set up, you will have to essentially mark them up inversely, like this:

    HTML Code:
    <div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/LocalBusiness">
    
    <div itemprop="branchOf" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization">
      <span itemprop="name">Name of Main Office</span>
    
    <div itemprop="address" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/PostalAddress">
      <address properties here...>
    </div>
    </div>
    
      <span itemprop="name">Name of Sales Office</span>
    <div itemprop="address" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/PostalAddress">
      <address properties here...></div></div>
    Schema also has a "hasPOS" (has points-of-sales) property, which is also an option here, but I think that the branchOf property with the LocalBusiness schema type would be more appropriate in this case.

    Looks better. But I did notice that the phone number is not nested within either location schema, so that's something important that you really should fix. And you can use the LocalBusiness schema type for both locations. You don't have to use the Organization type for one, because LocalBusiness is actually an extension of Organization.

    Hi David,

    I find myself in a bit of a quandary. I'm trying to do multiple schema but decided to use suborganization.

    I run the authentication in Yandex and receive no errors. Conversely, Google's tool throws errors.

    Q. What am I doing wrong?

    Re: Business Multi Location Schema Markup Help

    Hi Callmenicholi. Well, since you have two locations, one really should to be the parent and the other should be the subOrganization. And when you mark them up, you do need to include all of the information about both locations including the name, address, etc.

    So in your case since there are only two locations, you would only need one block of markup, specifying which is the parent and then nesting the info about the subOrganization.

    I hope that makes sense and helps.

    currently, just doing schema markup per page they are really sort of a franchise set up. different addresses and phone numbers same company name same website just structured as


    Home page www.mydomain.com

    www.mydomaian.com/city

    service www.mydomain.com/fixthis/city

    am I on the wrong track

    Looks pretty good Nicholas, from what I could see after taking a quick peek. Although one thing I should mention is that "price range" is usually displayed as $, $$, $$$, and $$$$. This guide might help you to decide which value to use: The New York Times Restaurant Key: Ratings
