The Fact Check Content Type is ideal for situations when you have content which reviews a claim made by others. This element enables Google Search results to show a summarized version of your fact check when your page appears in search results for that claim.
How to markup Joomla Pages with the Fact Check Schema
From the main menu choose Components -> Google Structured Data. Click on Items from the left sidebar and then on the New button to create a new Structured Data Item.
On the next page, you will need to prepare the Structured Data Item. Enter a Title (it can be anything) and select the Fact Check Content Type from the respective dropdown.
Next, click to save the Structured Data Item. Once the page reloads, a new section called Fact Check appears below where you can map each property with page data.
To read more details on how the mapping works, visit the respective section in the How to Add Structured Data to Pages guide.
Fact Check Schema Properties
Here's a table of the properties you can define in the Fact Check Content Type.
|Title||The title of the claim which is being reviewed. It is recommended not to exceed 75 characters. If you leave it blank, the current item's title will be used instead.|
|Publication Date||The publication date of the claim.|
|Claim Author||The name of the claim's author.|
|Claim Author Type||Choose if the claim's author is an Organization or a Person.|
|Rating||Rate the validity of the claim choosing a textual representation from the list.|
|Claim URL||The exact URL of the claim.|
|Multiple Fact Checks||Does this Content Item contain more than one Fact Checks?|
Fill in the anchor name which immediately directs the user to this specific fact check.
This should only be used when you have multiple fact checks in this item and they can be directly accessible with distinct anchor names.
