WordPress, WooCommerce, Google Tag Manager and Schema App: Where to start?

Tutorial

Schema App provides you with multiple ways to approach the deployment of your structured data. But sometimes it can be hard to figure out where to start! In this post, we’ll give you guidance on how to use Schema App in these different scenarios:

  • WordPress
  • WordPress + WooCommerce
  • All other web platform/CMS (Eg: Joomla, Drupal, Shopify, Squarespace, etc.)

You use WordPress and want to add structured data to your site

If you want to use Schema App to create and manage customized schema.org markup, the Schema App WordPress Plugin makes deploying your structured data easy. Once you’ve created your structured data in the Schema App Editor, the WordPress plugin retrieves the data for the current URL of the page shown.

The Schema App WordPress Plugin works as a standalone product to automatically markup your WordPress Pages using the data that you input into WordPress.

Installation

Deploy your WordPress structured data by setting up the Schema App plugin. You can install the plugin after registering for Schema App.

  • Register for Schema App
  • Download the Plugin on WordPress from Plugin Repository.
  • Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  • Go to Settings > Schema App
  • Enter the setting and your Graph ID. Your Graph ID will be in the email with your credentials, or in http://app.schemaapp.com/wordpress

You use a CMS other than WordPress and want to add structured data to your site

If you are not using WordPress and want to save time on implementation of Schema.org markup, we have good news. Schema App now integrates with Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager allows you to automatically pull JSON-LD from our Cache, automating the code deployment. However, because Google Tag manager loads the JSON-LD asynchronously, this solution only works for Google Search Engines, not Bing, Yahoo, or Yandex. Stop cutting and pasting code, and contact us for an API key.
