So you have a relationship between two organizations where the first includes the second! This is where you can use subOrganization markup schema.org’s element to allow the search engines to know you have more than one location for you brand. At SEOtweaks we specialise in structured mark-up language and have noticed there is not many example’s out there on the internet so we thought we would provide some assistance.

Here is what you need to do to mark-up your webpage with the subOrganization that operates under your Organization.

For example: You may have two websites in two different countries with different names, for the purpose of this example I will call them

www.websiteA.com.au Titled Website A (Main Organisation in Australia)
www.websiteB.com Tilted Website B (subOrganization operating in the UK)

<div class=”logo” itemscope itemtype=”https://schema.org/Organization”>
<a href=”‘www.WebsiteA.com.au'”><meta itemprop=”name” content=”Website A”>
<meta itemprop=”subOrganization” content=”Website B.”>
<meta itemprop=”subOrganization” content=”Website B is a suborganization in the United Kingdom operating under the Website A brand founded in Australia on 2013-12-09.”>
<meta itemprop=”foundingDate” content=”2013-12-09″>
<meta itemprop=”alternateName” content=”Website B”>
<meta itemprop=”description” content=”description of Website A goes here.”>
<meta itemprop=”email” content=”admin@WebsiteA.com.au”>

<link itemprop=”sameAs” href=”http://www.WebsiteA.com.au” />
<link itemprop=”url” href=”http://www.WebsiteB.com” />
<link itemprop=”sameAs” href=”https://www.facebook.com/WebsiteA” />
<link itemprop=”sameAs” href=”https://twitter.com/WebsiteA” />
<link itemprop=”sameAs” href=”https://plus.google.com/+WebsiteA/posts” />
<link itemprop=”sameAs” href=”https://www.pinterest.com/WebsiteA/” />
<img itemprop=”logo” src=”www.WebsiteA.com.au/WebsiteA.png” width=”313″ height=”75″ alt=”WebsiteA”/></a></div>
</div>
