Hi WA Community!

I just did a URL inspection in GSC of a new article, followed by a "request indexing". Google indexed the post but indicated:

URL is on Google, but has issues
It can appear in Google Search results (if not subject to a manual action or removal request). However, some issues prevent it from being eligible for all enhancements

How can I define the nature of the problem and fix the issues?

Thanks!
Frank

Here are the 7 errors I found:

1. Missing field "aggregateRating" (optional)
2. Missing field "brand" (optional)
3. Missing field "sku" (optional)
4. No global identifier provided (e.g., gtin, mpn, isbn) (optional)
5. Missing field "url" (optional)
6. Missing field "priceValidUntil" (optional)
7. Missing field "availability" (optional)

Google indicates that these are "low severity" errors. Do I need to fill in all this information?

Thanks!

The fixes are optional. Not mandatory items needed.

Can you click and open each missing statement to see examples? That may help you decide if the fix is needed.

Having never seen anything close to those errors happening before , maybe it would be better to put this question through to site support. There's not much that these guys can't help with.

It is all info related to the product I was reviewing. I put it all above where the WP product review plugin puts the granular data. I requested it to be re-indexed in GSC. We’ll see if the errors disappear. Contacting Site Support is a good idea

It wouldn’t let me do that but I entered it all manually. I’ll let you know what happens. I agree it is all optional, as stated in parentheses. The Amazon page that the product is linked to didn’t have any of that info either.

Jim,

I ran it by Site Support. They did a Google structured data test on the URL for my site post. They said that there are data fields that are undeclared in the GeneratePress theme. They suggested that I contact GeneratePress or change to a different theme.

Does anyone know a fix for this or if GeneratePress Pro supports these structured data fields?

Thanks,
Frank

Interesting...do you auto or manually updupdate your themes? Check for current version.

I run GeneratePress and have not had this issue. I went pro because at $49 a yr, I can use GP with unlimited number of websites.

Can you explain what you did to get tthese results and I'll run rhe same test to see what comes up on mine. Could be a bug or glitch.

Hi Rudy,

I just manually checked my GeneratePress again and I have the latest version 2.4.2. I also have the latest version of WordPress installed.
If you run my Prevagen review in Google Rich Results Test (website URL is in my WA profile) then you will see that the problem is in the strucuted data fields for "products" (see attached image).

Thanks for your help. I love playing with this stuff and it's a fun way to learn tons of new things in the process! :-)

Hey Frank,

Are you using the paid version of Generate Press? If so, their plugin for the paid version may have fixed this issue as there was an update notification on my sites using this theme, regarding the update availability.

Did you notice the Security Update on your review plugin that the developers (having taken over this plugin from another developer) left for their users?

Hi Trish,

I'll most likely change over to the paid version of GeneratePress. I wasn't keen about the additional plugin, since the free theme does all that I currently need.

I don't use Rich Reviews by Starfish but it looks like a good plugin for doing local SEO.

I Google searched what you had in your screen print. I would NOT use that plugin due to their warning... which is why I made that comment.

Which plugin are you using for reviews?

Generate Press required 5 additional plugins from my supposed fully-optimized (once upon a time, of course) Thrive theme and yet increased my mobile speed from Thrive's 23 to GeneratePress paid version to 82. Yes, seriously.

It all depends on the plugins we use, not JUST the number of plugins used. There are well scripted plugins as there are well scripted themes.

Hi Trish,

I’m using WP Product Review Lite.

GeneratePress is one of the fastest themes available for WP. All my plugins seem to be working fine with it now.

Good to know that your issues are now solved Frank. That must be a big burden off your shoulders. :-)

It sounds like they are ranking it , but not highly. The issue may be in the content. I'd suggest you place the URL in the site comments thread and ask members to take a look at it to see what the issue might be. Jim
