Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Change Webpage Schema Type to Article

  • Resolved John4peace


    Good day, am confused as I have installed yoast to both of my websites with identical themes.

    To my surprise one of the sites is embedded with yoast article type schema while the other with a yoast webpage type schema markup (which of course I don’t want)

    I cannot be having a webpage type schema for my WordPress posts…

    Hi @john4peace ,

    Thanks for contacting us. We’re sorry to hear that the expected schema output is not working correctly on your site.

    Looking at the URL, we would also expect that it would output the “Article” schema type, since it is a Post.

    We would like to confirm that your theme or another plugin is not interfering with the schema output. To do so, can you please perform a conflict check on your site?:

    The fastest way to do this is to deactivate all non-Yoast plugins and switch to a standard theme like Twenty Nineteen

    Test this on your development or staging site, if you have one. If not, we recommend using the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin. This plugin allows you to run a conflict check without affecting normal visitors to your site.

    As we can imagine that you’re unfamiliar with checking for conflicts, we’d like to point you to a step-by-step guide that will walk you through the process: How to check for plugin conflicts.

    Thanks, But the above procedures did not rectify the issue unfortunately…even went extra miles installing a fresh wordpress on a subdomain with only yoast plugin and default TWENTY TWENTY THEME activated…yet the Webpage Schema still persists instead of Article.

    Additionally, i want to ask if your plugin take a bit of time to make readjustments to the affected posts

    @john4peace No, it wouldn’t take additional time for the plugin to modify the posts. If you aren’t seeing a change after modifying them, it may be due to your site caching the page. If you clear your cache (server, plugin/theme, or CDN such as Cloudflare) does this resolve the issue? If you are not sure how to clear your server cache you should speak with your host provider.
