Hi John,

This is kind of a broad question. In general, schema is a programming term that refers to the organization of files in the database. May I ask what do you want to achieve in your website so we can fully assist?

The schema is one of many different types of structured data, a rather broad category which includes Facebook’s Open Graph and Twitter Cards. Structured data can help you to send the right signals to search engines about your business and content.

Schema can help sites to provide relevance, but you need to understand the types first. There are a number of types for specific purposes i.e Local Business, Product, Brand, Organisation etc.

To test site schema you can use Googles testing tool:

To build schema you can use many free tools ie:

I would recommend not adding schema to your site until you understand it in detail. It's a whole other beast. We use it on all our local client sites and some product sites currently. It can be highly beneficial for aggregate ratings to have the star ratings show up in the search results.
