Image Licensing Schema – Structured Data for Google Images

Image Licensing Schema – Structured Data for Google Images


Google Images now supports “license” Schema.org Structured Data.

It’s useful for website owners, as they can use those structured data to show the preferred Licensing Policy for the images used on their website. They can also use this plugin to appear on top of the Google Image search tool for specific license filtered searches.

This plugin provides Licensing for your website images, using Schema.org structured data for Google Images. And even if your images are not free to use, it’s always interesting to appear on Google Images, with the right license and a nice link to your website Image license policy page (which is most of the time your Legal Notice page).

Current implementation and roadmap/next steps

For the moment, this plugin supports all the Creative Commons licenses. Plus, you can select your very own license policy (requires a custom licensing policy page).

The plugin also builds a specific image policy link that will be displayed on Google Image. So if they want to use your image, people will be asked to give you proper credits, according to your licensing policy.

Next steps:

  • Support more licenses: feel free to ask for specific licenses in the support forum!
  • Provide a Licensing Policy Page builder, just like WordPress Core does with the Privacy Policy page.


  • Plugins default settings are located in Settings > Media.
  • On both Gutenberg and Classic Editor, you can edit your image license image by image.
  • On Google Images search results: your images will be showing a “Licensable” badge.
  • And there will be a link to your license and a link to your License Policy Page.
  • Specific image policy link page is displayed when Google Images users will click on the “Acquire license” link.

Unfortunately, this plugin has major bugs, which render using a custom license URL impossible. However, the developers do not address it nor respond to their own support forum. Honestly, not a good look for a member of the WP Core Team…

The idea is good, but this isn’t currently working for me because of a Custom Licensing Policy generating an error in License Field. It’s outputting an invalid URL into the custom licensing code, which is prompting Google Search Console errors. I ended up with thousands of errors from it and got no response from the developers in the support forum. I’d like for this to work, but I can’t recommend it as it currently is.
