Did you know that All in One SEO Pro lets you add Schema markup for fact checking of claims by others?
This means that search engines can display rich snippets for your fact checking like the example below.
You can’t force Google to display search results like this. It happens on a per search basis depending on whether they feel it’s the best way to display the results.
In this article we’ll cover the following:
Setting the Schema Type for Individual Fact Checks
