Duplicated meta data on products – Google Search Console

  • Hi there. I am working on SEO optimization for my website by using RankMath and Google Search Console. Your plugin has been quite useful, yet when I run test over my optimized products on Google Search I find out that there are two different versions of my product there:
    1. First i find my product with all of its variables and meta tags correctly configured by RankMath, No trouble at all.
    2. Then I find a copy of my product from an early version of my website that I had already deleted.

    Is there any way I could get rid of that code from RankMath? It is creating a little trouble in Google and I cannot optimize neither delete it.

    Thank you very much!

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    This is a bit strange, would you mind sharing a link to one of your products so that I can take a look at this issue for you?
    It would also help if you could perform the diagnostic steps described on this page to check if the issue is related to a conflict: https://community.mythemeshop.com/tutorials/article/52-confirming-a-plugin-conflict/

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the follow up.

    Please clear any cache that may be configured for your site and check if this will resolve the issue for you.
    If the issue persists, please share some temporary admin access on the sensitive data section so that we can look at this issue for you.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello again. Unluckily, after clearing the cache and running the test again after one day nothing has changed:
    The “Product” field appears twice on my Google Search Console:

    On the first one everything is just like I configured on RankMath
    On the second one, I have a piece of code that I cannot either modify or delete.
    So… I have 36 “warnings” to solve: add brand, id, sku… etc for these all 36 duplictaed product fields. And that seems to be afecting my SEO rank.

    Please do tell me if you should need to access either my Google Search Console or my wp-admin to check this out.

    And thanks again in advance for your help!

    Hi Erick,

    Thanks for the writing back.

    The most likely cause of this is that your theme’s page markup contains existing structured data markup in the form of microdata that is getting loaded after Rank Math has added the structured data.

    Google is able to recognize that the two sets of structured data relate to the same product and will pick the complete version of the product in their data analysis and ignore the others.

    You can however strip the microdata from your theme by overriding the page templates using a child theme. I would suggest that you get in touch with your theme author to get some advise on this.

    I hope this info helps.

    This information is quite useful and I think that will do.
    Thank you very much for the support and your plugin as well!

    Hi. Just in case anyone has the same problem, I am posting a solution I found on GitHub:

    https://github.com/woocommerce/woocommerce/issues/22896#issuecomment-468435668

    It seems that Woocommerce is trying to enlist structured data for the category pages which is not recommended by Google so it is better to tell the functions.php of woocommerce not to do so.

    Thank you very much for your help.
