Using Schema Markup for Organization Logos

Schema.org Markup – What is it?

Google, about two years ago, came up with Schema.org to help reduce the hectic task of marking up each, and every web page to be found (“indexed” technically) by search engines. Before that, every web page should contain a particular markup data, in order to display it in search results of particular search engines. But Schema.org was introduced with loads of short HTML tags or micro-data, “Codes” to be more common, which can create “rich snippets” of the relevant web page, and even parts of the web page, to be displayed in search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. All you have to do is to include just a couple of HTML tags from Schema.org and your web page will be ready for search engines to index properly.
