SmartCrawl is picking up the pace with new supported schema types. Here is a quick rundown of the plugin’s new schema markup types.
We recently published a detailed tutorial on using SmartCrawl’s schema options feature. See this post if you’re not sure what schema is (tl;dr – schema types help search engines better understand your site’s content, increasing your visibility on search using features like rich snippets, which can improve your chances of more users clicking through to your site).

Note: After adding schema types to your site, you can validate your code and test your schema using this tool.
We have many new schema types to cover, so let’s get cooking with…
Do you run a food blog or a recipe site? Great! Use SmartCrawl’s recipe schema type to tell Google all about it in a pinch.
To add a recipe schema, log into your WordPress site and go to SmartCrawl > Schema.
Select the Types Builder tab from the Schema section and click on the ‘+ Add New Type’ button.
Next, select the schema type you want to use from the Add Schema Type menu (in this case Recipe) and click the Continue button.
As stated in the description, all of the types include the properties required and recommended by Google by default, so there’s no need to mess with any code. SmartCrawl takes care of it all for you.
