# Properly mark up multiple person using schema.org microdata

I am creating a radio episode that will have multiple conductors (usually 1 to 3):
inside a loop I am associating those conductors to director providing also the url linking to their respective conductors page:

<h3 class="conductors">
Conducted by

start loop...

<span itemprop="director" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Person">
<span itemprop="name">
<a href="{{url}}" itemprop="url">{{name}}}</a>
</span>
<meta itemprop="jobTitle" content="Conductor">
</span>

end loop....

</h3>


but I am not sure if I am doing it well and I feel I could have done multiple mistakes:

• The way I define the multiple person
• How I am associating the url
• The jobTitle (I expect this to better specify the director in some way)
• span inside span (trying to have conductors on one line and inside an heading for better semantically specify that they important to the radio episode)

### Microdata / Schema.org

Your use of Microdata and the Schema.org vocabulary is fine.

To specify multiple directors, you have to provide multiple director properties, which your loop seems to achieve:

<span itemprop="director" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Person">…</span>
<span itemprop="director" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Person">…</span>
<span itemprop="director" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Person">…</span>


To specify a URL value, you have to use a suitable link element (with href or src attribute), like a, link, img etc. So your use of the a element achieves this.

I prefer using http Schema.org URIs (reasons why), but using https is fine, too.

### HTML

Is this h3 really the heading for a section of content? If yes, your markup is fine. But then you might want to add a textual delimiter (like ,) to separate the conductor names.

If the section should just specify the conductors, and there is no other content under its scope, the h3 should just be something like "Conducted by", with the list of conductors under its scope:

<h3>Conducted by</h3>

<ul>
<li itemprop="director" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Person">…</li>
<li itemprop="director" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Person">…</li>
<li itemprop="director" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Person">…</li>
</ul>


Headings should not be used for content just because this content is important. h1-h6 don’t represent important content, they represent "headings for their sections". There is typically no case where you should have a heading without any content in its section.
