Rich Snippets Issue for blog posts

  • Hello, I’m using Rank Math for my personal development blog. I’m using your recommended plugin for Rich Snippets. But with the Google testing tool, https://search.google.com/test/rich-results,
    My blog doesn’t look eligible for the rich results. As you know, it’s a great need of the time as Google is changing the trend. Can you help me fix this issue?

  • Hello,

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

    There are a couple of errors reported on the structured data testing tool. You can fix the first error “false (The value provided for logo.url must be a valid URL.)” by heading over to Rank Math > Titles & Meta > Local SEO and upload a logo with a Min Size: 160Χ90px, Max Size: 1920X1080px.

    The second error relates to FAQ page schema means that some of the data on your FAQ schema is incomplete. Rank Math does not add this rich snippet and it may be coming from another plugin or your theme. I would suggest that you identify the source of this data to be able to fix it.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I have uploaded the logo and removed the plugin for FAQ. But still it’s not getting eligible for the rich snippets. Can you please check it out?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    Please remove the extra hAtom microformat schema from the page since it is incomplete and you already have the BlogPosting schema on the page. Please note that it may take some time before the rich snippets show up in the search results, please allow a few days for Google to pick up the information.

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.

    How to remove the extra hatom? I have no idea about it.
    And do I need to add anything in the rich snippet box below each article? Or there is no need of it?

    I don’t mind if it takes a couple of days. I just want to make if eligible for it. So, I just want to help me be eligible for the rich results according to the test.

    Hello,
    Can you please tell me the difference. Why this page is eligible for rich snippets, according to the Google test,

    5 Steps to Success in Achieving Goals

    But my page with the same content is not eligible,

    8 Guaranteed Steps To Success That Will Make Your Successful


    How can I make it the same as the other one?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    The extra schema is coming from your theme and thus you may want to get in touch with the authors so that they can advise on how to turn this off.
    The page schema should be representative of the content on the website and this is one of the factors that search engines will look for before awarding your site some rich snippets.

    Google will also check the overall quality of the site before rich snippets are displayed and thus you should also check other errors that may be reported on the search console.

    Here is a quote from one of the Google’s help article:

    We perform algorithmic and manual quality checks to ensure that structured data meets relevancy standards. In cases where we see structured data that does not comply with these standards, we reserve the right to disable rich snippets for a site in order to maintain a high-quality search experience for our users. Read our webmaster guidelines for more details.

    And do I need to add anything in the rich snippet box below each article? Or there is no need of it?

    No you do not need to do anything else on this box, Rank Math will capture the values from the post object.

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.

    Thank you. Hope that it will help. Well, there are no such errors in the search console and I’m also trying to make the on-page SEO perfect so that there should be no issue at all.

    Thank you for your support.
