Schema for Video

  • Hi

    Apologies for raising a ticket however I could not find any info in the Knowledge base relating to this.

    We have a small website with pages and blog posts. Can you please clarify the correct or best way to integrate video using RankMath? Specifically:
    1. Does RankMath restrict authors to one Schema? What I mean is do you have to choose between an article and a video or can you have both?
    2. If you have to choose what SEO factors influence that decision?
    3. If you have choose video for the fields Content URL I assume this is the link provided by YouTube, but what is the Embed URL? please? I checked the emebed code provided by YouTube and the url inside looks the same.
    4. RankMath does not provide a video sitemap which creates errors in the Google Serach Console – do you have any suggestions as a work around for this please?

    Many thanks.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    1). Yes you can only use one schema type on each post. This is in accordance with Google’s guidelines where the schema data should be able to tell search engines what the post is about without offering conflicting data.

    2). You should select the most suitable schema that describes the post content. This will make it possible to appear in local searches and voice searches.

    3). You can use the same URL for both fields.

    4). I can recommend that you disable the Rank Math sitemap module and install any third party solution with this feature.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
