Support » Plugin: The SEO Framework » Disable Website Structured Data

  • I’ve played with the settings in the plugin but can’t seem to figure out how to remove “website” schema. I did remove organization since I marked it up with Local Business Schema instead. Please tell me how to remove the website schema or at least modify it. The entries are not correct.

  • Under the block “ Settings”, you select the 2nd tab “Presence”…
    There are some fields to fill up to insert the data you want.

    If still not working (checking with the Google Structured Data Tool), you can insert the data manually with a .json file.

    Hi. Thanks for your response.

    Yes, I’ve played around with the settings in the “Presence” tab but they don’t seem to make a difference. I was able to delete the “Organization” data but there is “WebSite” structured data by SEO Framework that I am trying to delete.

    I don’t see “WebSite” data in the settings.. Am I missing something?

    Indeed, I don’t know exactly how you can delete it with SEO Framwork plugin…
    Maybe try to disable the “Presence” tab by unchecking the field “Output Authorized Presence? [?]”

    Thank you for helping out in the forums, @webzen69! I’m afraid we’re on the wrong page here. I’ll try to clarify how we did this.

    The Presence tab is how you’re represented outside the realm of your website. For instance, who you (or your business) are, how people can recognize you, etc.

    That your website is a website is implied; as such, there’s no toggle for that. But, we do need to annotate that for the “Sitelinks Searchbox” functionality. You can find this toggle under the Structure tab. When you uncheck the Sitelinks Searchbox, the whole WebSite script disappears.

    When those entries aren’t correct, then you may have misrepresented your website in the general settings of WordPress. This can lead to issues, such that Google is prone to overwrite your titles. The search endpoint is correct (unless you’ve disabled search); however, we have noticed it’s not a commonly recognized endpoint.

    Lastly, the setting changes may not work instantly when you are using a dedicated and stubborn object caching plugin. So, be sure to flush your caches when you notice it being stagnant.

    I hope this clears things up! Cheers 🙂

    Hi Sybre,
    Thanks that does help. So I dug into my wordpress settings and fixed some things. But I can’t figure out where it is getting the “alternate name” setting.

    As far as schema, is it okay to have both local business schema and website schema? It seems to me website schema would not be used for a local business.

    Hi again!

    The alternateName is shown when you fill in the “The organization or personal name” field under the Presence tab. But only when it’s different from your site name supplied in the General WordPress Settings. So, when you empty it, the alternateName output will be gone.

    The WordPress “Site Title” field must be the brand name; it’s used as glue for your whole site, in parts you may or may not see, by any plugin or theme.

    Now, your website is a website. Your website is also for a local business. Your website may even hold a product, breadcrumbs, and more. All these annotations may coexist, and parsers may depict them as separate entities or as a whole.

    My point is, as long as the annotations aren’t of the same type, they may very well be displayed concurrently. For example, LocalBusiness doesn’t overlap (or conflict) with WebSite, so this isn’t an issue.

    Finally, you can use the structured data testing tool to spot errors and see if tags are omitted (because they’re overlapping): Do keep in mind that this parser isn’t equal to the one Google uses internally, it is just a tool.

    I hope this clears everything up 🙂 Cheers!
