My client has recently implemented the
sameAs markup for the social media profiles.
They have used Microdata as they don't want to use JSON-LD as they feel it'll be some work to go through the site and change it all around.
I have noticed that they have added a
div with an
Organization and a
link tag with
itemprop not wrapping anything.
<div itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization"> <link itemprop="url" href="domain name"> <a itemprop="sameAs" href="instagram"></a> <a itemprop="sameAs" href="facebook/"></a> <a itemprop="sameAs" href="twitter"></a> <a itemprop="sameAs" href="google+"></a> </div>
This has resulted in only 2 of the social media profiles appearing in the knowledge graph.
They have icons further down the page with links to the social media profiles. Should they not instead wrap these anchors around those instead?
