    Hi I keep getting this error from Google. It goes away when I disable the Yoast SEO plugin….

    It seems to be for this page ONLY…


    Search Console
    Some fixes failed for Unparsable structured data issues on site

    I hit the same thing today: Unparsable structured data issues reported by Google Search Console after updating to Yoast SEO 14.8.1 yesterday. Same Incorrect value type “@type”. It doesn’t like the "@type":["WebPage",null] below:

    {"@context":"","@graph":[{"@type":"Organization","@id":"","name":"Charitocracy","url":"","sameAs":["","","","",""],"logo":{"@type":"ImageObject","@id":"","inLanguage":"en-US","url":"","width":1024,"height":1024,"caption":"Charitocracy"},"image":{"@id":""}},{"@type":"WebSite","@id":"","url":"","name":"Charitocracy","description":"Think of us as your charity-of-the-month club","publisher":{"@id":""},"potentialAction":[{"@type":"SearchAction","target":"{search_term_string}","query-input":"required name=search_term_string"}],"inLanguage":"en-US"},{"@type":["WebPage",null],"@id":"#webpage","url":"","name":"","isPartOf":{"@id":""},"inLanguage":"en-US","potentialAction":[{"@type":"ReadAction","target":[""]}]}]}

    Meanwhile I’ll look into what else might be broken on the offending page to get Yoast’s schema into the weeds…

    Same thing. The only fix for now is to edit your themes functions.php and to disable the Yoast schema. Then you can validate with Google.

    Add this as last line to functions.php:

    add_filter( ‘wpseo_json_ld_output’, ‘__return_false’ );



    Thanks for the workaround, @shoplifter! I’m validating cleanly again until the schema fix comes back from Yoast.

    Hi @petergos,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    We are currently investigating an issue where the @type includes null. We are still looking at the scope of the issue though, we’ve seen that some membership/forums plugins like bbPress, buddyPress and buddyBoss have the same issue on some pages. However, it seems like the URL you have here is not related to it.

    Can you share a bit more information on how this page is configured/structured? It looks like this is a fairly customized URL structure. We would like to know more.

    Hi @shoplifter,
    Hi @benjlipchak,

    This filter disables all Schema output from Yoast on the whole website, this is quite a big workaround and would not be advisable, it would also disable all valid Schema on all other pages where this is not the case. If you have the same issue, please open up a separate topic where you include the URL and as much information so we can investigate and help our development team to scope the issue. Thank you!
