  • Hy! I have took a LocalBusiness but when testing a structured data it showed me an error – «required property is not filled». It’s about img property.
    Is there a way to add a picture value to «img» property? For example from a post or page. Maybe just specify the general photo in the settings?

    @feedough,

    I’ll look into this, but I have very little time these days. Help each other here on the forum and share your implementations.

    Hi Blaz,

    Thanks for your work first.

    Like many others I just want to have my articles rated. I’ve found that @type Review-aggregate seems to work. No erros within testing tool (https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool?hl=de#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.stern.de%2Fvergleich%2Felektro-scooter%2F) and it shows correctly in the SERPS: https://www.google.com/search?q=stern.de+e-scooter (1st result as off now).

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    Your plugin is just great. Thank you for your work.

    Hello Blaz,

    I found out that the RMP is no longer showing a rich snippet on the Google search result. I wonder if there’s any alternative way to implement HowTo while still using RMP?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    Thanks for the update. I am using this for my article and blog post, which should I choose?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi @obster79 I also need this for my blog and article pages only. Could you tell me how you achieved that? My ratings are all gone on google:(

    Thanks

    How can i change the Type of structured data for rich snippets to Software Application?

    It says to implement by using the rmp_structured_data filter, but i do not know how to do that… How can this be done, please?

    Hey guys,

    I’ve been following this topic closely and here is what I decided. I will make more in-depth tutorials on how to implement the Event and the SoftwareApplication structured data types, probably during the weekend.

    The HowTo schema is very complicated – I could make a completely new plugin just to support that schema type. But to be honest I think many of you don’t understand what that schema type requires. If you don’t have a set of steps to successfully complete a task in your posts then that’s not the schema type you are looking for. The set of steps has to be defined in the structured data with texts and optionally images, videos etc. You can read more about the HowTo schema type here: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/how-to So, for know this schema type will not be added to the plugin.

    Some of you recommended legacy markups which still show rich snippets, most likely only because they are used so rarely that Google hasn’t removed their support yet. I’m not planning to add such markups to the plugin, not least because they don’t seem to be available in JSON-LD. Nevertheless, while testing different markups I did manage to get the complex-rating (recommended by @feedough on the second page) working. Below is the implementation:

    
    function my_complex_rating_structured_data( $structuredData ) {
      $voteCount = rmp_get_vote_count();
      $rating = rmp_get_avg_rating();
      $img = get_the_post_thumbnail_url();
      $name = get_the_title();
    
      $structuredData = '
      <div style="display:none;" class="hreview-aggregate">
        <div class="item">
          <span class="fn">' . $name . '</span>
        </div>
        <div class="rating">
          <span title="' . $rating . ' of 5 stars">
            <span class="average">
              ' . $rating . '
            </span> /
            <span class="best">
              5
            </span>
            </span>
            (<span class="count">' . $voteCount . '</span>)
        </div>
      </div>
      ';
    
      return $structuredData;
    }
    
    add_filter( 'rmp_structured_data', 'my_complex_rating_structured_data' );
    

    Note that this type is available only in microdata format and thus the snippet above hides the output with display:none. I have no idea if this in any way violates the guidelines.

    Thanks to all who shared you implementations here on the forum.

    Blaz

    I published the tutorials as well as the whole documentation for the plugin on my website: https://blazzdev.com/documentation/rate-my-post-documentation/

    1. How to choose structured data type in the post editor under Filters -> Changing the schema type -> Example 2 – Choose the schema type for each post in the post editor

    2. How to implement the Event structured data type under Filters -> Changing the structured data -> Example 1 – Change schema type to Event

    3. How to implement the SoftwareApplication structured data type under Filters -> Changing the structured data -> Example 2 – Change schema type to SoftwareApplication

    If there is demand, I might consider making an extension for the plugin which will deal with structured data, but in case I do make such an extension this will be a Premium solution (not free) and will include the following:

    1. Choose structured data type for each post easily in the post editor
    2. Easily add all fields (also the recommended ones) for all supported structured data types in the post editor.

    If you think you need such an extensions, let me know here or by subscribing to the newsletter on my website.

    Blaz

    Hello @blazk

    Thanks for the update. I am using this for my article and blog post, which should I choose? I assume the “creative work series” but I am not sure?

    Thanks a lot!

    Plugin Author Blaz K.

    (@blazk)

    @ony, this really depends on your blog posts. Check out the announcement from Google and figure out if your blog posts fit to any of the categories/types. If you click on the category in the announcement, you will get more information about it. For example, for creative work series it says TVSeries, RadioSeries, MovieSeries, BookSeries, Periodical and VideoGameSeries.

    If your blog posts don’t fit to any of the categories then you are simply not eligible to rich snippets according to Google Guidelines.

    Regards,
    Blaz

    @blazk Thank you so much for your help 😀
