When you wanted to inform search engines of the page’s main topic, you can mark up links inside your content with About Schema.
For instance, if you have a page on ‘Which is the best electric car of the year?’ — you can mark up a link to the Wikipedia page on the electric car with About Schema since it is an informative resource on the parent topic.
While About Schema refers to the page’s actual topic, Mentions Schema is used to mark up links inside your content to point to the page’s related topics (not necessarily refer to the page’s actual topic).
Following up on the same example we discussed earlier, for the Mentions Schema — you can markup reference links to a related topic, say electric vehicles, and the different electric car models you’ve included inside the article.
PRO TIP: When using About and Mentions Schema, we recommend using links to authoritative pages like Wikipedia and official website links, as search engines have a better understanding of these pages’ topics and could relate to your content a lot better.
