Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Errors reporting in Google Structured Data testing tool

  • Resolved laptophobo


    I’ve noticed that on new and existing article “posts” (not pages) I am getting a dozen “error messages” within the “WebPage” area of the Google Structured Data Testing Tool.

    When I view the error report, it is pointing to the post with “/top” added to the actual post, i.e.:

    Should I be concerned about this? Or, is there a way I can fix this? I’m pretty sure this is a result of your new plugin upgrade. (By the way, the schema markup feature is a big help and glad that you’ve added this into your plugin. That is, if it doesn’t mess up my Google ranking. 🙂 )

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Do you have any other plugins installed that might also be adding Structured Data?

    Yes. (I thought I had followed up on this post, but it must be somewhere else.) Anyway, it appears that the new Yoast SEO plugin is adding structured data within the Search Appearance section. They have provided instructions on how to disable their tool at:

    I’ll try later today or before end of week to see if disabling Yoast schema and re-activating your plugin works for me.

    Thanks for following up.

    I found the problem. It is within the (Enfold) theme that I use. When I add a shortcode (generated from Avia Layout Builder, a feature within the Enfold theme) into a widget that goes to my Footer area, it creates an “<Article Class>” that (I think) confuses Json. So for now, it does not appear to be a Yoast issue.

    I’ll let you know how this works out (for those other Enfold users).
