    Question Business Multi Location Schema Markup Help

    Hi

    Looking for bit help. One of our website design clients who we are doing some local SEO on, we recently added some schema markup on his website.

    Mcintyre Masonry Ltd | Stonemasons in Scotland

    In the footer of all pages we have listed his address, he has 2 offices which we added in schema format. But Im not sure if this will confuse Google having both on all pages and whether I have added it right for multiple addresses?

    Hoping you guys and girls can help out

    It could get confusing for Google, she's sensitive.

    Industry best practices would be to create a page for each location, and have your schema on those. Currently on the contact us page you have both addresses with embedded maps.

    Hi Blake

    thanks for your reply, on contact page we didnt use schema markup, so you think keep contact page as it is, remove schema from the footer on all pages, and just add schema on an actual individual location page?

    Re: Business Multi Location Schema Markup Help

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Moved your post to help and support which is where posts need to go that link to and are about a specific listing.

    I agree with Blake plus you'll find lots more detailed advice under this hashtag.

    Re: Business Multi Location Schema Markup Help

    thanks for everyones comments, what im thinking about doing, comments welcome

    remove the scehema from the footer

    i have already location pages

    Stonemasons in Edinburgh | McIntyre Stonemasonry
    Stonemasons in West Lothian | McIntyre StoneMasonry

    move the schema address + add map onto these pages

    Ideally would like to keep the contact page as it is, these not done in schema format

    what do people think? am i best removing 2 address from contact page too?

    Re: Business Multi Location Schema Markup Help

    Hi RFK. I would assume that one of those locations would be considered their "main" location, so the other location could be considered one of their branches. If that's the case, you could always use the "branchOf" property to specify the difference between the two locations.

    Hi David

    thanks for your comments, the west lothian address is their main base, main office, the edinburgh one is simply a sales office they use from time to time when needed

    so are you saying, just keep it all as it is but add branchOf into the edinburgh address in the footer and that should all be good?
