    Example:
    This is an example of Microdata for schema – sportsteam.

    <div itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/SportsTeam">
        <span itemprop="name">San Francisco 49ers</span>
        <div itemprop="member" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/OrganizationRole">
            <div itemprop="member" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Person">
                <span itemprop="name">Joe Montana</span>
            </div>
            <span itemprop="startDate">1979</span>
            <span itemprop="endDate">1992</span>
            <span itemprop="roleName">Quarterback</span>
        </div>
    </div>

    This is from https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/s/swansda01.shtml

    <div itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/BreadcrumbList" class="crumbs"><span itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem"><a itemprop="item" href="/"><span itemprop="name">BR Home Page</span></a> <meta itemprop="position" content="1" /></span> > <span itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem"><a itemprop="item" href="/players/"><span itemprop="name">MLB Players</span></a> <meta itemprop="position" content="2" /></span> > <span itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/ListItem"><a itemprop="item" href="/players/s/"><span itemprop="name">S Listing</span></a> <meta itemprop="position" content="3" /></span> > <strong>Dansby Swanson Statistics and History</strong></div></div>

    When I do a ctrl+f search, there are 9 hits on the word. When I do a URL search at https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/s/swansda01.shtml with the RankMath custom generator, I get no results.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for the inconvenience caused by this.

    When I test using Google Rich Result Test, it detects only breadcrumbs.

    This shows that their schema is not set up properly.

    You can try different sites or use https://rankmath.com to see if it is working.

    I hope this resolves your issue.

    Ok. Thanks for looking into that. But to clarify, will RankMath pick up other schema sources like Microdata when I use the schema generator?

    Hello,

    Yes, as schema itself is a type of microdata. If the schema is set up properly on a website, RankMath should pull the data up.

    I hope this resolves your issue.
