- I've started to use Article markup (https://schema.org/Article) on a WordPress website. The aim is to add as much as possible properties.
- By using a (popular) plugin, basic Article data is parsed as JSON-LD which Google Rich Results Test is marking as eligible.
- I feel that the plugin does not cover enough properties, so I started to add additional properties using (mainly) microdata.
- By disabling the plugin I lose other functionality, which I feel is not worth adding manually.
Without spending too much time on this (traditional question being: is it worth it), I have the following problems and questions:
By using this approach, I'm getting two sets of Article entries in the Google Rich Results Test (one for each of the syntax)
To, maybe, be able to answer better:
- The IDs of the two entries are different (is that maybe the reason for the two entries? - Edit: I've matched the ID's but two entries are still created)
- Other properties (e.g. the updated date) in the microdata might be different
- There will be additional properties in the microdata
Will Google use the first entry, the second entry (i.e. latest variables) or a combination of the two entries?
- Fix the problem
- Continue with two entries based on how Google handles the entries
- Remove the microdata altogether
