    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the swift response!

    The one company is a DBA of the other. The DBA we are currently working with is listed as a contractor whereas the other business is a farm. They do have different phone numbers associated with the businesses. I am not sure of the legally organized distinct businesses part. However, I do know they do two very different things. The farm has a 5-acre corn maze, pumpkin patch, slides, wagon rides, a petting zoo & kids’ festivals and the contractor provides a service that helps contain dust on unpaved roads by providing a bio-earth friendly solution to the trail/roads/walkway etc.

    I’m attempting to create schema markup for multiple locations of an organization as well. For some reason, Google Schema Markup Testing Tool says Google isn’t recognizing @types like “parentOrganization” or “subOrganization”.

    Here’s an example of my markup. Do you know why this would be?

    <script type=”application/ld+json”>
    {
    “@context”: “http://schema.org”,
    “@type”: “parentOrganization”,
    “name”: “Organization’s Name”,
    “branchOf”:
    [
    {
    “type”: “subOrganization”,
    “geo”: {
    “@type”: “GeoCoordinates”,
    },
    “url”: “https://www.organization.org/locations/city/”,
    “telephone”: “(###) ###-####”,
    “faxNumber”: “(###) ###-####”,
    “hasMap”: “https://www.google.com/maps/place/”,
    “openingHoursSpecification”: [
    {
    “@type”: “OpeningHoursSpecification”,
    “dayOfWeek”: [
    “Monday”,
    “Tuesday”,
    “Wednesday”,
    “Thursday”,
    “Friday”,
    “Saturday”,
    “Sunday”
    ]
    }
    ]
    },
    {
    “type”: “subOrganization”,
    “geo”: {
    “@type”: “GeoCoordinates”,
    },
    “url”: “https://www.organization.org/locations/city/”,
    “telephone”: “(###) ###-####”,
    “faxNumber”: “(###) ###-####”,
    “hasMap”: “https://www.google.com/maps/place/”,
    “openingHoursSpecification”: [
    {
    “@type”: “OpeningHoursSpecification”,
    “dayOfWeek”: [
    “Monday”,
    “Tuesday”,
    “Wednesday”,
    “Thursday”,
    “Friday”,
    “Saturday”,
    “Sunday”
    ]
    }
    ]
    },
    {
    “type”: “subOrganization”,
    “geo”: {
    “@type”: “GeoCoordinates”,
    },
    “url”: “https://www.organization.org/locations/city/”,
    “telephone”: “(###) ###-####”,
    “faxNumber”: “(###) ###-####”,
    “hasMap”: “https://www.google.com/maps/place/”,
    “openingHoursSpecification”: [
    {
    “@type”: “OpeningHoursSpecification”,
    “dayOfWeek”: [
    “Monday”,
    “Tuesday”,
    “Wednesday”,
    “Thursday”,
    “Friday”,
    “Saturday”,
    “Sunday”
    ]
    }
    ]
    }
    ],
    }
    </script>

    Makes sense. I figured that was probably the case, but I know from what Joy Hawkins has shown about Google messing up hours based off of an apostrophe that maybe it was an issue 🙂

    Hmmm. Didn’t realize there was a WP-plugin. We had just been copy/pasting the code.

    The Schema on that page is in the header or footer (JSON-LD). We’ll try it again with the plugin and see how it goes.

    Thanks Aaron!

    Mike, I guess I’m confused because when we install the widget on WordPress and look at the live page (example), there’s no Schema markup in the source-code.

    J.R. I’m coming into this conversation very late and hopefully by now, you got the account and did great work for them. I’m coming in late with a recommendation of studying the first 5 chapters of “The Challenger Sale” by Matthew Dixon and Brent Adamson http://www.amazon.com/Challenger-Sale-Control-Customer-Conversation/dp/1591844355/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1455893399&sr=1-1&keywords=the+challenger+sale It makes a powerful argument for a sales approach that aligns with today’s consumer behavior, and is perfect for the service that we’re selling. Spoiler alert: It promotes “leading with insights” rather than with solutions and provides a brilliant structure for the interaction. Good luck! -SW

    Thanks Mike! We use GetFiveStars for numerous clients. Is there a way to have that structured markup incorporated to the testimonial/review widget?

    No one else has access (I checked who is listed as managers). And if they had made a change, it wouldn’t have shown up as needing to be reviewed.

    I was able to change the hours back, but there’s no “override” button that reverts the data back to what is was before the public edit. Ugh.
