How to get contact number to appear in search bar on mobile??

Hi,

 

I'm having some issues with multiple accounts for the business i work for.

My main issue is with getting the business contact number to appear in the search bar as someone is typing on mobile.

 

For example if you type in the search bar on mobile 'bt contact' the number appears in the suggested search terms before you even submit it.

 

How do i get this for my business?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Lisa M

 

This happens across all platforms: desktop and mobile and is extracted from structured data markup on your website.

I will place a caveat here, and that is, it tends to mainly show for search terms that are actually searched regularly.

 

So even if you add in structured data it may not appear for quite some time and or until the site has some authority.

Basic structured data looks like this, however you may need to modify based on your details and business structure. https://schema.org/LocalBusiness

 

<script type="application/ld+json">
	{
  	"@context": "http://schema.org",
  	"@type": "LocalBusiness",
  	"address": {
    "@type": "PostalAddress",
    "addressLocality": "Corby",
    "addressRegion": "Northamptonshire",
    "postalCode":"NN17 1EZ",
    "streetAddress": "6 Regal Close"
  	},
