The Person Schema can be used to organize and present information about individuals in a standardized format, making it easier for search engines to identify and extract key details. This can include information such as the person's name, job title, and contact information, as well as additional details like education, awards, and publications. By using the Person Schema, websites can provide users with more accurate and comprehensive information about the people behind them.
How to markup Joomla Pages with the Person 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 Person Content Type from the respective dropdown.
Next, click to save the Structured Data Item. Once the page reloads, a new section called Person 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.
