Should I be adding Schema if I have a google my business account.

 

1. Full business name - The Digital Agenda


2. Current business address - 1800 Sans Souci Blvd, North Miami Florida 33181


3. Current telephone number - 954-854-3361


4. Google Maps URL - https://www.google.com/maps/dir/''/the+digital+agenda+miami/data=!4m5!4m4!1m0!1m2!1m1!1s0x876ea3c552...


5. Website  - https://mymiamiwebdesigncompany.com

 

Here is the markup:

 

<script type="application/ld+json">{
      "@context": "http://schema.org",
      "@type": "LocalBusiness",
      "address": {
    "@type": "PostalAddress",
    "addressLocality": "North Miami",
    "addressRegion": "FL",
    "postalCode":"33181",
    "streetAddress": "1800 Sans Souci Blvd"
      },
      "description": "North Miami Web Design Company",
      "name": "The Digital Agenda",
      "telephone": "954-854-3361",
      "openingHours": "Mo, Tu, We, Th, Fr Sa 8:00-6:00",
        "url": "https://mymiamiwebdesigncompany.com",
        "email":"mailto:info@thedigitalagenda.net",
        "image": "http://mymiamiwebdesigncompany.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Miami-Web-Design-Company.png",
        "logo": "http://mymiamiwebdesigncompany.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Miami-Web-Design-Company.png",
    "priceRange": "$$"},
      "geo": {
    "@type": "GeoCoordinates",
    "latitude": "25.8855062",
    "longitude": "-80.2312503",
         },             
  "sameAs": [
    "https://www.facebook.com/Digital-Agenda-1780766935471920",
    "https://twitter.com/mydigitalagenda",
    "http://plus.google.com/106614264733389036486",

  ]
    }</script>

 

But here is our Google My business:

https://www.google.com/search?num=20&safe=off&site=&source=hp&q=the+digital+agenda+miami&oq=the+digi...

Will this add our social icons? We have one for an organization, one for a local business, and one for Website when we do a schema markup tester on our URL.

Will that confuse the search engines?

I'd personally merge Organization with LocalBusiness. They represent the same thing, where LocalBusiness is a more specific type than Organization.

 

They could add social icons if Google decides to show you in the knowledge graph and use your information.

 

They should complement your Google My Business. Make sure the information provided in both are the same.
