This means that search engines can display a carousel of your movies that list the title, director, image, and star ratings.

In this article we’ll cover the following:

Setting the Default Schema Type for all Movies

To set the default Schema Type for your movies, click on Search Appearance in the All in One SEO menu, then click on the Content Types tab.
