Regarding schema type and custom post

  • Hi Support,

    I use Rank Math on my sites for SEO and also use a Star-ranking plugin and PODs framework for custom post type creating. Few questions I have –

    1. Till now, I had selected “Software Application” as my schema type ( Screenshot – ) , Should I change it to “None” since I am already using a different schema type plugin at ?

    2. I am using Pods for creating custom post. What should I write under “Custom Fields” section which says – “List of custom fields name to include in the Page analysis. Add one per line.” what name should I write here?

    Have a look at this screenshot of my custom fields of pods – Should I write custom fields name like “deal_summary” into the custom field box of RankMath or anything else?

    My main moto is to display star rating in the Google Search results. These ratings will be user generated using plugin. So, I should avoid enabling schema type at RankMath and that rating plugin both. Right?

    Please help me with some more instructions as to be able to show Article ratings like this in Google results ( Screenshot – )

    Thank you.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    1). Since the rating plugin loads its own schema then setting the Rank Math schema to None would be good call. A better solution would be to get in touch with the author of this plugin and seek their help in integrating the rating values to the Rank Math schema if the plugin does not provide Software Application schema.

    2). If you have specific custom fields on the post type which you would like the values analyzed on the Rank Math page analysis then you should list them on this page. Please note that these value will only be by Rank Math on the backend when creating the page score.

    I hope this helps. Thank you.
