  • Business name
  • 番地
  • 電話番号
  • Contact page link or email address
  • Link to Google Map with directions to your establishment
  • Google Map showing your location

  • Corporation schema
  • Organization schema
  • Local Business schema
  • Restaurant schema
  • Many more!

Google Maps Structured Data

The integrated Google Maps features allow you to enhance your location structured data by displaying a business map on your site with full schema support. Your business location, including the business address, will be displayed on a map (with the correct map schema), as well as in text with the correct location microdata.

Multiple Locations

Business Profile supports multiple locations. This powerful feature works great for businesses that have several offices, for delivery services, for restaurants with multiple locations, etc. Business location schema is added to each entry and you can showcase your details using the Gutenberg schema block, via the location shortcode or with the included widget. For help getting started with this, you can visit:

The multiple location structured data for your business also syncs up with the Five Star Restaurant Reservations to automatically offer a dropdown in your reservation form, so people can pick which location they want to book at. You can choose separate orgnization schema, corportation schema or local business schema for each new location you create, so each schema shortcode and each page’s contact info is uniquely optimized with SEO and search results in mind.

Is there a shortcode to print the contact card?

Yes, you can use [contact-card]. The documentation includes all of the shortcode attributes.

It asks me for a Google Maps API Key but I don’t know what it is or how to get it.

Google now requires that you have your own API key to display a map on your website. The documentation includes a walkthrough to help you generate a Google Maps API key.

Google Maps shows my business in the wrong location

Unfortunately, in some cases Google is unable to find the right latitude and longitude to match your address.

In some cases, you may be able to get it to properly locate you by tweaking the address. Sometimes Google just needs a bit of help. Once you’ve got the right coordinates you can go back and restore your original address, and save the form without touching the coordinates again.

If you’re unable to get Google to recognize your location, the best thing to do is to leave the Google Map out when you print your contact card. You will also want to hide the Get Directions link, because Google will guide your customers to the wrong location.

There’s not much I can do about this, unfortunately. Even if you were able to manually set the latitude and longitude, Google would still show bad directions, because it uses the address, not the coordinates, for this feature.

What’s the Schema Type?

This allows you to let search engines like Google know exactly what kind of business you run.

That way, when someone looks for a real estate agent or a restaurant in your area, they’ll know to include you in their search results.

You may not find a type that’s a perfect match for your business. Choose the option that’s most appropriate for your business, and fall back to a more generic type, such as Local Business, if you need.
