May we introduce to you our free structured data code creator, the Schema Markup Generator
How to Create a Structured Data Code for Rich Results on the SERP
When added to your web page, Schema Markup can provide major benefits. Most notably, using structured data allows search engines to properly read/understand the context of your page. As a result, search engines can pull snippets of content from your page and place it within your organic result on the SERP. These rich results increase a page’s SERP visibility and are visually more enticing. This, of course, is exactly what any site wants as it draws the user to its organic result on the SERP and increases the chances of garnering a click.
Yet, the technical aspects of implementing structured data markup have acted as a barrier for many thereby preventing sites from benefiting from it.
Enter the Structured Data Markup Generator.

as you work your way through the fields.
Click ‘Validate’ to send your script to Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool
, then click the green arrow button to validate your code.
