If you have posts or pages on your website with content about movies – consider marking them up using the Movie Schema type so searchers can explore movie information such as the title, director, image and more – in search engines.
This can even lead to you earning a movie carousel rich snippet on Google, which is currently available on mobile devices. Fortunately, taking advantage of Movie Schema on any number of pages on your website couldn’t be easier than it is with Rank Math.
How to Add Movie Schema Markup to Your Posts/Pages PRO
Before we begin, you’ll need to ensure that Rank Math’s Schema Module has been enabled on your website by navigating to Rank Math > Dashboard in your WordPress admin area.
In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through how to use the Movie Schema type on a post or page, as well as the various available settings for it – let’s get started:
1 Edit Your Post or Page
To add the Movie Schema Type, first head over to the edit page for that post by clicking Edit as shown below:
2 Open Rank Math In The Gutenberg Sidebar
Click on the Rank Math SEO icon in order to open the SEO settings for the page.
Or alternatively, click the three vertical dots in the top right-hand corner of the edit page and select Rank Math in the Plugins section – as shown below:
3 Navigate to the Schema Settings for This Post/Page
Click on the Schema tab and then click on Schema Generator to navigate to the Schema Settings for this post/page.

The Schema Builder will then show up with the various options as shown below:
We will now discuss each option in the Schema Builder.
Movie Schema Type Setup & Available Options
1 Movie Name
Enter the name of the movie here. You can make use of variables if you have already mentioned them in the title.
2 Movie Director
Enter the name of the movie’s director here.
3 Review Location
This option lets you know where the information for the Schema should be added. You can add it above the content, below the content, or both above and below the content. You can also use the shortcode and choose a custom location.
If you chose the shortcode option in the above setting, then you should paste the shortcode from this field into your post where you want the review to be displayed.
5 Date Created
Enter the date and time when the movie was created with the help of the date and time picker.
Enter the rating score for your movie. You can also add the minimum and maximum rating scores for the movie.
7 Pros and Cons
Enter the positives and negatives of the movie you’re reviewing in the Pros and Cons fields. When you add these lists, ensure that you’re adding only one item per line.
And, that’s it! Once you’ve finished adding all of the details regarding the movie this post or page is about in their respective fields in Rank Math’s Schema Builder, simply click on Save for this Post.
Then, simply update the page as you normally would after making a change or click Publish (if this is a newly created post/page). And, as we recommend doing whenever making adjustments to Schema Markup, we then recommend you proceed to validate this page’s Schema with the help of Google’s Rich Results Testing Tool.
