How to Add Structured ld-json data to your HubSpot Blog Posts and Improve your Website Structure

Here is a way a super easy way to help Google bots and other search engine bots providing clues about the meaning of your page by including structured data.

Structured data is a standardised format for providing information about a page and classifying the page content.

In that case, we will tackle how to implement BlogPosting schema markup on Hubspot specific blog posts.

This piece of code below adds ld+json structured data to the HTML code so search engines understand better your blog post. And this, automatically! Since in Hubspot no modules are available (yet) to automate your schema markups like in Wordpress, adding this code to the template level will generate a schema markup everytime you publish a blog post.

        
          
<script type="application/ld+json">
{
"@context": "https://schema.org",
"@type": "BlogPosting",
"mainEntityOfPage": {
    "@type": "WebPage",
    "@id": "{{content.absolute_url}}"
},
"headline": "{{ content.name|striptags }}",
"image": {
      "@type": "ImageObject",
      "url": "{{ content.featured_image }}"
},
"datePublished": "{{ content.publish_date|datetimeformat('%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%z') }}",
"dateModified": "{{ content.updated|datetimeformat('%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%z') }}",
"author": {
  "@type": "Person",
  "name": "{{ content.blog_post_author|default('{{company_name}}') }}"
},
"publisher": {
  "@type": "Organization",
  "name": "{{ company_name }}",
  "logo": {
      "@type": "ImageObject",
      "url": "{{ site_settings.logo_src }}"
    }
},
  "description": "{{ content.meta_description }}"
}
</script>
