Setting Fact Check Schema Markup in Your Content

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.

In this article we’ll cover the following:

Setting the Schema Type for Individual Fact Checks

To set the Schema Type for individual content, edit your content and scroll down to the AIOSEO Settings section, then click on the Schema tab.

Now, click the Generate Schema button to open the Schema Generator.

You’ll see the Schema Types that are available.

Click the Add Schema icon next to Fact Check to add it.

You can now edit the schema information.

Once done, click the Add Schema button to add the schema to the post.

The Fact Check schema has now been added to the post.

If you would like to edit any of the schema properties or delete the graph, click the Edit Schema or Delete Schema buttons in the graph card.

When you click on Fact Check as the Schema Type for your content, you’ll see a popup with additional fields where you can enter your fact check information.
