Overview:

Structured data is content marked up in a very specific way to describe your products to search engines.

Here's an example of what it looks like:
<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context": "http://schema.org/",
  "@type": "Product",
  "name": "Lockey 1150DC Double-Sided Latchbolt Lock",
  "image": "http://keylessentrylocks.com/images/KeylessEntryLocks-product-1500/1150DC.jpg",
  "description": "Lockey 1150DC Double-Sided Latchbolt Lock",
  "mpn": "Lockey-1150-DC",
  "brand": {
    "@type": "Brand",
    "name": "Lockey Digital Systems, Inc."
  },
  "offers": {
    "@type": "Offer",
    "priceCurrency": "USD",
    "price": "449.93",
    "itemCondition": "new", 
    "availability": "in stock" 
  }
}
</script>
Adding this data to your product pages is a signal Google likes that can help your search engine rankings, according to some experts.

FAQ

Q: Can I hire you add additional elements to the structured data?
A: Probably yes. Just contact me to discuss. You'll want to include a reference to the schema you'd like to add from schema.org. in your request. For example, if you look at software in my store, I use the SoftwareSourceCode schema, whereas for my eBook, I use the Book schema.
