What Is Schema Markups

And it works exactly like the meta tags of your website.
Meta tags you might have observed that whenever a web-page appears in search results a little description of it comes under title tags.
You may alter and adjust these descriptions. Usually with the help of Yoast plugin. But this description usually is not part of the data on your website.
It's an additional information which you give to users about your content.
