Effect of Putting Geo Tag in the Head Section of a Page

By April


During episode 69 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, a viewer asked about the impact of adding geo tags in the header section of the page as well as setting the location in JSON LD schema.

The exact question was:

Hey guys,

Would a meta geo tag in the head section of page work as well as json-ld to show location relevancy for the specific city page? My json already has local business schema so i dont think i should add a second local business schema hence hoping the header meta geo tags will help. I also have 1 image on the page geo-tagged but am thinking of adding the meta geo tag to further help location relevancy with out adding a 2nd local business to json.

Just put this in that specific pages head section via the WordPress plugin you mentioned a week or two ago?
