Inparsable structured data > Incorrect value type ‘@type’

  • I received the error message below from Google Search Console;

    Unparsable structured data issues detected

    Search Console has identified that your site is affected by 1 Unparsable structured data issues:

    Top Errors

    Errors can prevent your page or feature from appearing in Search results. The following errors were found on your site:

    Incorrect value type ‘@type’

    We recommend that you fix these issues when possible to enable the best experience and coverage in Google Search.

    Looking in the support forum, this appears to be a common issue, there is a post from just over two weeks ago where the feedback from RankMath says:

    ​​That is a known issue and is fixed internally.

    For now, you can also downgrade to the older version by following this tutorial:
    https://rankmath.com/kb/version-control/#a-how-to-rollback-rank-math-to-a-previous-version

    Once the fix is released, we will let you know.

    Hope that helps.

    However, this was referring to version 1.0.48.1. I’m running version 1.0.49.

    A follow up to the OPs query just over one week ago from RankMath say’s:

    Please update to the latest version of Rank Math, the issue should be resolved so you can notify Google about it.

    If not, please let us know. We are here to assist.

    I have run into the exact same issue which suggests the issue has not been resolved in the current release. I have four questions:

    What is causing the error?
    When will the error be fixed?
    Once fixed, what do I need to do at my end?
    Once fixed, how do I notify Google about it?

    Many thanks

    That seems to have fixed the issue. Can you please confirm on your end?

    Hi Michael,

    I’ve started the ‘Validation’ process in Google Search Console to see whether the newly installed Beta fixes the issue.

    It looks as though it may be a few days before we have an answer but I will let you know the outcome once Google completes the validation.

    “Google has started validating your fix of Unparsable structured data issues on your site. Specifically, we are checking for ‘Incorrect value type ‘@type’’, which currently affects 5 pages.

    Validation can take a few days; we will send you a message when the process is complete. You can monitor the progress of the test by following the link below.

    Many thanks

    Hello,

    Sure. Also, you can test your URLs by using this tool and see if there shows up any error(s) in the Schema data:
    https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/u/0/

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you.

    Testing the affected url’s using the Structured Data Testing Tool is returning 0 errors and 0 warnings, so my assumption is that means the issue has been rectified?

    Hello,

    Yes, the issue should not be popping up again.

    In case it does, please feel free to open a new support ticket.

    We are here to assist.

    Thank you.
