How to force social & local detection?

Using schema.org metadata, it’s easy to associate all of your online profiles - both social and local - with your website in just a few lines of code.

Under Schema.org, the organization item sameAs allows “a school, NGO, corporation, club, etc.” to “reference a Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Freebase page, or official website." Also specifying an address will help in finding you in online local directories.
Not an organization? That’s okay. If your website represents you as a brand, this will still be a totally valid method for indicating that your website, social and local profiles go together. Check out the code example below.

Example:

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context" : "http://schema.org",
  "@type" : "Organization",
  "name" : "WooRank",
  "url" : "https://www.woorank.com",
  "sameAs" : [
    "https://twitter.com/woorank",
    "https://plus.google.com/+woorank",
    "https://www.facebook.com/woorank",
    "https://foursquare.com/v/woorank/4e296473149554c77442cc98",
    "http://www.yelp.com/biz/your-business-url-from-yelp"
   ],
  "address": {
    "@type": "PostalAddress",
    "streetAddress": "Boulevard Louis Schmidt",
    "addressRegion": "Etterbeek",
    "postalCode": "1040",
    "addressCountry": "BE"
  }
}
</script>
