How to Add Software Application Schema ?

Here’s how you can implement a software application schema markup on your website in three easy steps with zero coding skills.

When you select Software Application as the Schema Type for your content, you’ll see additional fields when editing your software content where you can enter your application information.

To get started, edit your content, scroll down to the AIOSEO Settings section and click on the Schema tab.

Complete the fields with your software information as described below:

  • Name – enter the name of your software
  • Price – enter the price of your software (optional)
  • Currency – select which currency your price is in
  • Operating System – enter the operating systems your software works on
  • Category – select the category that matches the type of application

Below the software application fields you’ll see a Reviews form. You can use this optional form to add details of any reviews that customers have left for this product.

Complete the form with the review headline, content, reviewer’s name, and star rating. This form only supports one review at this time in compliance with Google’s requirements.

Please note that the information added in the form only appears in the Schema markup in the source code of your content, it does not appear as content visible to visitors on your site.
