As I understood it they are both supposed to be your url. What makes them different when using schema?

Hi Thomas, which schema are you using/referencing? Have you looked on schema.org for expected values in that schema?

I’ve used Local Business schema, and I’ve referenced schema.org but could not answer my own question (although I bet I’m just not reading in the right place).

Hi Thomas,

 

I don't believe there is a @id in schema.org/LocalBusiness: http://schema.org/LocalBusiness

 

You could use http://schema.org/identifier but it's not necessary.

 

Are you doing this so that your LocalBusiness schema on your website references your business listing? Personally I use "hasMap" for this purpose, linking to the map listing.

 

Best, David
