Do you have a number of articles published on your website? You can add a schema markup to highlight them in search engine results too!
Schema Pro has an article schema type that allows you to add schema markups to pages like these. Let us see how this can be done using Schema Pro.
1. Create a new Schema markup by going to Schemas tab in the Schema Pro interface in WordPress dashboard. Click on Add New.
2. Select the type of schema as Article.
3. Select pages / posts you wish to use this for. You can add display rules and also exclude pages and posts you want to exempt this schema on.
You can refer to an article to know more about how you can target specific pages and posts.
4. You can then complete the setup and proceed mapping the required properties with fields that you already have on your website. Mapping is done by default. However, we recommend you to check the mapping and make sure your required fields get the right values.
Lets take a look at the list of Schema Properties you need to fill for the Article schema markup
- Article Type: The type of article it is. This can be either general, a blog post or a news article.
