Suppose you need a job a very good company, say XYZ Infotech, you have awesome grades, big knowledge of Codes and several things you need to grab that big opportunity. But company asks  reference from someone they can trust about your experience and knowledge. So you get letter of recommendation from some reputed person, which helped to land your dream job sucessfully.

So here Schema.org does the same job for your website. From Schema.org you find some beautiful codes regarding your  business which helps Google know about your business nature, your address, reviews, services, work timing, and so many other things which you want Google to know about your business website. This data helps google to find and filter data according to the searches made by the user on Google search page.

Here the data can be used for searches related to local searches. This data also helps Google in giving more accurate searches when it comes to review and ratings, Author, business type, work timings, Offers, Books, Product and description.
