Service Schema Type

If you run a website with pages about specific services – such as a home cleaning service, repair replacements, interior design, etc – we recommend taking advantage of the Service Schema type. Doing so helps search engines better understand the contents of your pages and information about the service business your webpage is about.

And, in turn, Google may present it to its users (i.e. searchers) in unique ways through the use of SERP features (such as rich snippets) in Google Search results – making it easier for you to stand out among your competition and for potential customers to reach you. Fortunately, applying the Service Schema type to any number of pages on your website couldn’t be easier than it is with Rank Math.

How to Add Service Schema Markup to Your Posts/Pages

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 Service 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 Service Schema Type first head over to the edit page for that post, by clicking Edit as shown below:

Or 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:
