    Hi @mllapan,

    Thanks for bringing this up. We have a feature request to have this added as an option in Yoast SEO for our developers to review, but we can’t give you an estimated date or say whether this will be available in an upcoming release.

    In the meantime, Yoast SEO has a Schema API that allows you to add custom code to your site to edit the schema output. Here’s a link to more information: Yoast Schema API documentation.

    That would be a great feature.

    If you do not mind, could you share the exact code to put in functions.php for the single post defining class as paywall, so I, and maybe many other do not have to go through all manual to understand how to implement it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Do check out our releases and changelogs from time to time to check out any new features and updates to the Yoast SEO for WordPress plugin.

    Unfortunately, we’re unable to provide an example or specific code. Please do refer to our integration guidelines and schema API for more information — https://developer.yoast.com/features/schema/integration-guidelines

    @mllapan did you have any luck with this? We’re trying the same but simply can’t make progress because of the complexity of schema combined with Yoast API documentation.

    Hi, @quickonline.
    Simply install https://wordpress.org/plugins/schema-and-structured-data-for-wp/ until Yoast guys update this.
    I did not found something negative in combining this plugin with Yoast schema, except it acts as different schema document.
    After you installed plugin, you can test your schema here: https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/u/0/

    Also, lemme clarify something.
    I might go out of topic, but this is important for users.

    Do not feed google with selectors for paywall or such things, this way you are telling you are not important to them much, but still they can see all content and use it on ways to get money.

    If you want paywall, do a hard paywall, and let only God and you see it.

    I also did this because of Google Ads and to be friendly with Google, but the more you’re friendly to them, they are worse to you.
    If you are not good earning target for them, you are no one and they will find way to ditch you.

    For example, they advertised this on my site https://imgur.com/a/SlTlwvj
    and guess what happened next…
    Ya, right, their bot caught it as nudity, and banned my pages which were showing their nudity ads!
    Rule is, if you pay them they will advertise anything, but if you don’t earn them by any way, they will ditch you.

    Ditch them with hard paywall, before they ditch you, and lets see how they earn when we all lock our content.
