In this knowledgebase article, we’ll walk you through how you can use Rank Math PRO to import JSON-LD Schema Markup.
What is JSON-LD Markup?
JSON-LD is used in the page in such a way that it does not impact the existing HTML structure and tags. Web- developers use JSON-LD as it follows the JSON syntax and is simple to implement. JSON-LD helps to create an overall better web by annotating the elements on a page and structuring the data which is further used by the search engines to organize and connect data easily.
How to Import JSON-LD Schema with Rank Math
Before importing Schema from HTML code please ensure that you’ve enabled the Schema module from Rank Math > Dashboard > Modules section. The Schema Module is available in the PRO version and we recommend installing the Rank Math PRO plugin and make the most of the Schemas supported by the plugin.
If you’re using the Schema Markup for the very first time, we recommend you to go through our massive guide on Configuring Schema Markup with the help of the Rank Math plugin.
