Why do I need Knowledge Tags?
Intelligent Services are answering questions about your brand every day. They are providing distinct experiences showing Locations, People, Menus and Events directly in the SERP, by voice, through chatbots and more.
Intelligent services rely on structured data to provide these rich experiences — so you need to ensure the data about your brand is structured in a way these services understand.
The structured data displayed to users is powered by Schema, which is a special markup placed on a web page. The problem with Schema is that it’s often hard to create, and even harder to modify.
Knowledge Tags Schema Markup helps your website speak the language of intelligent services so they can understand, categorize, and structure the information about your brand.
With Knowledge Tags you can manage schema at scale and keep the data in sync with Yext Knowledge Graph and third party listings.
NOTE: There will no longer be maintenance or support for this plugin beyond version 6.0. Please directly utilize the Knowledge Tags scripts, as explained in Yext’s documentation: https://hitchhikers.yext.com/guides/working-with-knowledge-tags/#script
