Who came up with this Schema Builder?

Hello, my name is Calebe Teixeira I am a SEO from Brazil with a few years of experience in software development and creator of Focus Keyword Finder.

I live on top of a mountain in the south of Brazil, with my beloved wife and children and I connect to the internet through a Starlink antenna.

For some time I had been putting off the idea of creating what would eventually become the best and most complete 100% free Schema generator on the internet.

This is a simple gesture to try to give back a little of what I've learned over the years in this wonderful community of SEOs.

Have fun!
