Is it ok to use both Microdata h-entry and schema.org in the same template? Or better to use one of them?

  • Do you really mean h-entry with Microdata (instead of Microformats)? (just asking, because while it’s possible to use Microdata, it’s rather uncommon and most use Microformats) – unor Feb 8 '17 at 14:07
  • Sounds it's better to use 1 of microdata type. – Husam Alfas Feb 10 '17 at 11:22

This is a matter of redundancy. Google's validation tool only detects and reads these h-entry classes:


But appears to validate a broader number of schema objects. Whether Google uses them or not is very hard to determine and often changes. If you'd like to make sure it's using at least one, use both. If you're comfortable using one version or the other, then do that.
