@seanschroeder, I am developing an Elgg plugin that uses Schema markup code for Elgg profile to help the search engines return more informative results for Elgg users.
When an Elgg site has schema markup in place, users online can see in the search engine result pages (SERPs) what a Elgg site is all about, plus plenty of other stuff.
Schema markup will help Elgg site rank better for all kinds of content types. Today, there are data markup for…
There are hundreds of markup types — the sky is the limit.
"Schema tells the search engines what your data means, not just what it says."
The new elgg plugin i am working on using using Schema markups will be available for download soon.

It can do easily if your site has a specific niche. We did it using own customizations for our eStore
Just add the additional attributes in outputs:
$vars['itemprop'] = 'url'; //for links $vars['itemprop'] = 'image'; //for pics etc
Then add 'itemprop' attributes for objects summary and metas (in this case, you can register the plugin hook 'head', 'page').
what versions will this work with? I think I am using 1.9 on the site..
Since I have been cutting an pasting the Schema.org JSON-LD code into each page, blog, group etc. I have started to see the search results I wanted.
I have another site that is running, i think 2.3. I have yet to start manually adding schema.org to it.. but it will be my next project.
can you provide the plugin link? Or you can email it to me if it isn't yet available
