Support » Plugin: The SEO Framework » Feature Request: “HowTo” Schema

  • Resolved serdarwork



    I use the SEO framework plugin with love on my guide site which includes articles like “how to install a WP plugin”. And also I don’t want to change it. Never, ever. However, as you know that the “how-to” Schema in Gutenberg block is vital for guide sites, I really need that on my web sites. Also, other people might need that block feature I guess.

    Do you think to add a feature which allows users to add “how-to” Gutenberg blocks for better search results?

    Best regards,

    I was expecting that “HowTo” blocks may improve our ranks in the search engines. But I did some research on the Google Docs and saw it has no effect on ranking. So I was wrong and that means “HowTo” block is not vital anymore for websites. Thank you for your attention and consideration. I really appreciate that!

    When my website starts making money, I’m going to buy your premium plan in order to support this excellent plugin!

    That’s correct. Structured data generally doesn’t have an effect when your content is not on the first page of Google’s SERP. It is why we don’t advise not spending time on structured data; landing there should be your highest priority.

    Once you’re there, then you might want to invest in it, but be aware that it often leads to no-click results. It means that potential visitors take the information of your site from Google (IIRC 60% fewer clicks), instead of ever going to your website. So you’ll effectively shoot yourself in the foot. It’s another reason we’re not rushing on all these fancy bells and whistles until there’s information supporting the benefit of integrating the structured data.

    And thank you so much for considering a purchase! We’re not here to take your money, so yes, make money first, pay us later 🙂
