    I have built a site for myself, as well as my uncle... Both are for business that service our local areas... I have been studying/learning/reading all I can about Local SEO, ORM and anything related to Offline Marketing for local businesses.. I was pretty quick to make sure the NAP was on each page of our sites; on my uncle's, there is a block with NAP on each and every page, as well as in the footer....

    I just read about schema structured data and using Google's markup tool to generate the necessary HTML code for you.. My question is this: If I am using a Wordpress theme (Avada from ThemeFusion for example) -- where do I add the generated HTML code? I read a blog post about adding into the functions.php, but to be honest before I went adding it all willy-nilly, I wanted to get other's insight and experience.

    Thanks for any assistance/answers in advance,

    --Rich

    I appreciate the input and response... I took a look at the link and then some of the reviews.. It has a few nasty reviews about spammy markup and fake reviews being generated by the plugin.. Has that also been your experience?

    Thanks again,

    I have looked at the plugins.. The plugin suggested by hmeister looks promising, but I guess I am a bit worried about things I can not see.. Anyone have any resources for inputting manually?

    Thanks again for all the help and suggestions,

    --Rich

    I think that complaint was for an older build of the plugin. Comment from author "If you upgrade to 6.0 there are no more links." I have not had any problems. :)
