Link in Source Code

  • Hello,

    first of all i must say that I am new to this SEO stuff. So please forgive me any stupid questions. πŸ™‚

    I have installed the Rank Math plugin and i must say, that from all seo plugins this is one i understand at least a little bit. So, thanks for that. πŸ™‚

    The reason why I am writing her now is, i get emails from the Google Search Console Team saying that Events issues have been detected. When I went to see what they mean i say the first time that some schema.cor/offer link was in my source code, which was highlighted by the Google Search Console.

    As I said I am a total newby but what does this link mean? My website is about my band and we’re musisians and when I go to schema.cor/offer it shows me something about loans etc. Is that correct?

    Can anyone clearify this to me, so I know what this is all about and how to treat the emails from Google about the detected Events issues?

    Thanks for the help and time,

    Besrt regards,

  • Hello,

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

    These errors suggest that you have not filled all the required fields on the event snippet. Please edit each of your event posts and then fill all the fields under rich snippet tab of the Rank Math metabox.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.



    thanks for your quick reply.

    Can you tell me if we, as a music group (band), really need this Rich snipped option? Or can I disable this?

    If I fill this out and use it. What am I doing with the “Shortcode” [rank_math_rich_snippet]? Not sure to to handle this?

    Thank you very much for your support,

    best regards,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Rich snippets are quite essential in SEO, they you great search benefits β€” like reusing the information to enhance analytics or onsite search which increases impressions and clicks β€” it also yields voice benefits, like informing chatbots.

    By structuring the data, you are helping to define the content to increase the machines’ chances of correctly matching your content to relevant voice queries.

    You do not have to use this shortcode. This is only used when you also want to display the schema data on the frontend in a well structured format.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
