Organization – Local Business

In schema, this property is part of Organization. Here is the full list of properties http://schema.org/LocalBusiness.

The properties in this Itemtype are more specific that can be used as well according to the business that you want to mark up. You can add as much properties as you like that are applicable to the local business.

Let take a Pet Shop as example.

My Pet Shop

At Pet Shop, we understand how important are pets in the family.Our products are high quality and 100% Australian.
300 Green St

Phone: +61 78725485
Opening Hours:
Mon-Sat 11am – 2:30pm
Mon-Thur 5pm – 9:30pm

In this case, we would need to use 2 “itemptypes”:

LocalBusiness: which contains properties to markup basic information about the business.

  • Name

<div itemscope itemtype=”http://schema.org/LocalBusiness“>
<h1><span itemprop=”name”>My Pet Shop</span></h1>
<span itemprop=”description”> At Pet Shop, we understand how important are pets in the family.Our products are high quality and 100% Australian.</span>
