    Re: Schema local business creation

    Hi Robert
    Plenty of threads around this on the forum e.g. http://localsearchforum.catalystemar...ch-engine.html

    You can test what you implement;
    Google Structured Data Testing Tool

    I'd love to have Linda's tool mentioned in her local seo training.

    Actual detail with some good examples; LocalBusiness - schema.org

    Re: Schema local business creation

    Hi Bill and Happy New Year!

    Here is the code that I have on my website which is in the footer area seeing how that is the ideal place to place your NAP Code seeing how the footer is present in all pages of your website.

    You can just edit the code to reflect your business info and you may want to see if there is a category for "Plumber" on Schema.org but you are a local business so this code will suite your needs exactly.

    Here you can take a look at my site to get an idea what you can do with the NAP info with some creativity and CSS Styling. http://www.pcmedicsoncall.com/

    PHP Code:
    <div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/LocalBusiness">
       <
    span itemprop="name">PC Medics On Call</span>
       <
    div itemprop="address" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/PostalAddress">
         <
    span itemprop="streetAddress">449 Purdue Drive</span>
         <
    span itemprop="addressLocality">Wilmington,</span>
         <
    span itemprop="addressRegion">NC</span>
         <
    span itemprop="postalCode">28403</span>
       </
    div>
       
    Phone: <span itemprop="telephone">910-200-0150</span>
       </
    div

    Bill,

    The code that I placed in response to your inquiry above is HTML Code not PHP!

    The forum would not allow me to add the code to the site using the other declaration tags because it would keep formatting it as it would look on a website so I was forced to use the PHP Code tags in order for it to display the code without formatting it.
