Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Breadcrumbs Missing field “id” Error in Google Search Console

  • Resolved f1alan


    I’m using the Yoast SEO plugin on my website and I’ve activated the breadcrumb option. I’m getting the following “Missing field ‘id'” error in Google Search Console.

    I’m duplicating a previous issue from another user ( as this was closed due to “inactivity”.

    As I said in my reply to that post, it was helpful to be part of a shared issue which seems to be exactly the same as ours. I do not have much time to investigate this right now but I still strongly suspect it to be related to Yoast SEO, therefore I would really appreciate it if you do not close this issue until it is resolved even if there is no activity from me.

    Please provide links to a few pages on your site that show this error in Google Search Console.

    I’m sorry but I’d rather not do that in a public forum.

    So far, every report of a missing ID I’ve investigated has been caused by another plugin or theme adding incomplete breadcrumb schema.

    This can be checked with Google’s structured data testing tool. Using the tool you can fetch the code for a specific link that displays a schema error. By expanding the section with the error, you can click on a valid schema near the error to be moved to the part of the code where the error exists. If it’s outside the Yoast markup (it starts with <script type='application/ld+json' class='yoast-schema-graph), the issue is caused by something else on your site; most commonly a theme issue.

    If you do not feel comfortable to do this yourself or if this does not solve your issue, our Yoast SEO Premium plugin comes with one year of (technical) support.

    Thanks, I will check this but probably not for some time. Please do not close this thread due to inactivity.

    @f1alan Following up to let you know that we created a knowledge base article regarding breadcrumb schema based on the cases we’ve investigated thus far. It may help during your troubleshooting.

    Sorry for the delay in responding but I just got a chance to return to this. Looking at the logs in the Search Console, it appears that this is no longer being reported as an issue (although we did not change anything). We have just updated to the latest release of Yoast SEO so will keep an eye on it. I think you can close this issue now.
