Errors in both structure data and rich snippets testing tools

  • Respected Rankmath team, I have been using your SEO plugin for a while now, and I just love it.

    Recently, I was undergoing an SEO audit on my site, and to my surprise, my site has errors in both structure data and rich snippets, which is bothering me since then.

    I request to you amazing guys, please help me go through this and let me know what I should be doing.

    Much love ✌

  • Hello,

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

    I have checked those issues and it seems your theme is adding the post date in a weird format so neither Rank Math nor Google is able to parse it. Also, it seems you have the author hidden so again, Rank Math can’t find it and add it to the Schema and then Google doesn’t find it.

    To solve the first issue, you should check if you can check the date format displayed in your posts or if you don’t know how to do it, I would recommend you contact your theme support and show them the Google Structured Data errors.

    The second issue is way easier, you just need to display some author in your post and it should be solved. Probably your theme has an option to display it.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Thanks a lot for replying, I will get in touch with ocean wp team.

    Will get back to you🥂

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Let us know how it goes with them.

    Please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    It seems that the ocean wp team doesn’t even care to common problems unless you are willing to pay for their “Support System”.

    So, I humbly request to you guys, please let me know about any workaround with this issue.

    As always much love for you guys ✌

    Hello,

    I have checked it in detail and it seems you have twice the schema data. One is added by Rank Math and it is working fine and the second one is added by OceanWP theme and is working wrongly.

    Since the one added by OceanWP is added last, it is the one Google takes and that is why you have that issue.

    I guess you will have some option in the OceanWP theme data to disable the schema added by the theme, could you check it?

    Looking forward to help you.

    Thanks a lot, man. I managed to disable the schema markup generated by OceanWp.

    Now the site has no structured data error but it is still getting errors in rich snippets tool.

    Please also take a look at that, and let me know what I need to be doing.

    [I have updated the screenshot links for both structured data and rich snippets.]

    Much appreciated 🥂

    Hello,

    The issue on Rich results is because the page yo are testing only has Blogposting markup, which is currently not supported by google rich results test.

    You can check the supported rich results here under the subtopic Supported rich result types

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Thanks a lot for replying, I do understand that Blogposting markup is not currently supported by rich results test.

    But can I have something like this “Rich Results” on my website?

    Or I would rather say is that worth it to have on one’s site?

    Hello,

    You can achieve the breadcrumbs by configuring them in Rank Math, I have recorded a screencast showing you where are those options: https://i.rankmath.com/zbt3gm

    About the sitelinks and getting them, it is an automatic process. Basically, you just have to have enough authority and backlinks for Google to deem your website worthy of those sitelinks.

    Here’s Google take on it:

    And here’s how to get sitelinks:

    Thanks a lot to both of you awesome guys for helping me out.

    I highly appreciated that 🥂
