Address Microdata

Address microdata identifies a physical geographic location by its mailing address. Although sometimes used by itself, it can also be used for the value of a property of another microdata item, such as a Person or Business or Organization.

Beverly Hills, CA 90210

This is an actual working example of the Address microdata example code below.

localityThe city, town or other locality.
regionThe state, province, territory or other region of the country.
postal-codeThe postal code.

   <span itemprop="postal-code">90210</span><br/>
