Support » Fixing WordPress » Uses for the sameAS field

    I run a podcast and have my main website on WordPress but the actual podcast is hosted by another company. In order to reach the widest possible audience, I have a second website within the podcast host which is near identical to the main website. The reason I maintain both is because the podcast host themes are years behind in mobile optimization and lack the customizations I need for navigation. Many of the CSS changes that implemented on the main site don’t take hold on the secondary site and navigation is a challenge for users.

    What I’m asking is if the sameAS field in WordPress could be repurposed to indicate to Google bots that the page in podcast site is the same as the one in my WordPress site. Is this counterproductive or would Google rank my secondary site higher than my main site if I were to do this?

    I believe the sameAS field is used for AMP pages but honestly, I’m not really certain. It’s near impossible to extract information about it searching the internet or this forum. I’m wondering if it’s there because of my Schema markup plugin but again I can’t say for certain.

    Any clarification on this would be helpful.

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

    I know that using the Yoast SEO plugin you can set a canonical URL link for pages, and that does exactly what you want it to do. I’m sure that there’s other plugins out there that will do the saem thing, so a quick search and see what’s there.
