Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » DC.date.issued Warning in Facebook Debugger

  • Resolved OnAllCylinders

    (@onallcylinders)


    Hello, I needed to do something in the Facebook Sharing Debugger and it is kicking back these two warnings for each page:

    Extraneous Property: Objects of this type do not allow properties named ‘DC.date.issued’.

    Parser Mismatched Metadata: The parser’s result for this metadata did not match the input metadata. Likely, this was caused by the data being ordered in an unexpected way, multiple values being given for a property only expecting a single value, or property values for a given property being mismatched. Here are the input properties that were not seen in the parsed result: ‘DC.date.issued’

    The only instance of DC.date.issued on my pages is within Yoast SEO output:

    <!-- This site is optimized with the Yoast SEO Premium plugin v3.2.5 - https://yoast.com/wordpress/plugins/seo/ -->
    <title>Diagnosing Common Automotive Charging System Problems</title>
    <meta name="description" content="Diagnose and troubleshoot automotive charging system problems related to batteries, alternators, and wiring. This post covers common systems and pinpoints probable causes."/>
    <meta name="robots" content="noodp"/>
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.onallcylinders.com/2013/09/18/diagnosing-some-common-charging-system-problems/" />
    <meta property="DC.date.issued" content="2013-09-18T11:07:58-04:00" />
    <!-- / Yoast SEO Premium plugin. -->

    As you can see I haven’t upgraded to 3.3 yet. Will upgrading work? Do I need to do something else?

    Thank you,

    Nate

  • Oh yeah, I need to get rid of that either, I’ll make some research in order to better understand its usage. It seems to be related to Google News / SERPs, not sure though but I’m debugging for an og:type “restaurant” and that seems not to be of any use for a food menu items page.

    i have the same problem even updating to the latest version still the same

    Extraneous Property
    Objects of this type do not allow properties named 'DC.date.issued'.
    Share App ID Missing
    The 'fb:app_id' property should be explicitly provided, Specify the app ID so that stories shared to Facebook will be properly attributed to the app. Alternatively, app_id can be set in url when open the share dialog.
    Parser Mismatched Metadata
    The parser's result for this metadata did not match the input metadata. Likely, this was caused by the data being ordered in an unexpected way, multiple values being given for a property only expecting a single value, or property values for a given property being mismatched. Here are the input properties that were not seen in the parsed result: 'og:type, og:description, DC.date.issued'

    Hi @onallcylinders,

    Although Facebook gives you a warning about the DC.date.issued meta tag, you can safely ignore it, as it does not impact the sharing, availability, or visibility of the data. That being said, our developers are currently investigating how that warning could be fixed.

    On the other hand, if you are having difficulties gaining access to Facebook Insights, please refer to this KB article: http://kb.yoast.com/article/254-gaining-access-to-facebook-insights

    Please be sure that you update and keep your plugin up to date as there are important security improvements in many of our releases.

    Hi Kim, thanks for the reply! I figured it wasn’t anything bad, just glad to pass it along.

    Can you tell me where within the Yoast files I can remove DC.date.issued? I’m seeing it may be related to another issue I’m having.

    I have Facebook Instant Articles set up but my RSS feed doesn’t always populate my new stories within the Production Articles list. When I attempt to manually copy/paste an Instant Article I get this error from Facebook.

    General Fatals: Sorry, We Couldn’t Parse the Article: Don’t worry, we are looking into this! Please try again shortly.

    Is Facebook not able to parse the article due to the “parser mismatched metadata” in my original post? I’d like to be able to simply eliminate that line of code and try again with uploading an article to Instant Articles.

    The DC.date.issued is specific to the premium version. Please contact our premium support team for assistance.

    How can I get premium support?

    Still an issue on your latest version!
