How to Display Business Location Data on Your Website Using a Shortcode

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how you can use Rank Math to display your Local Business location data using shortcodes.

Fortunately, if you’re using the Gutenberg Block Editor, this is even easier as we have a Local Business by Rank Math Block that makes it extremely easy to add Location Data for Multiple Locations, as shown below:

Local Business Block

However, if you’re using the Classic Editor or a page builder (such as Elementor), using the Location Data shortcode is the easiest way to add this to your posts & pages.

To get started, open Rank Math’s Schema Generator, accessible via the sidebar in the Gutenberg Block Editor

Click on Schema Generator

Or from Rank Math’s Metabox which is visible in the Classic Editor typically at the end after the post edit area:

Once opened, you’ll see the LocalBusiness Schema. Proceed to edit – which will bring up the following screen where you can find your location’s shortcode:

The Location ID is the Post ID of the Rank Math Location post that you’ll create for a location:

When using Rank Math PRO’s Local SEO Module to create multiple locations – you can easily auto-generate your KML sitemap for business locations. Learn more here.
