If you already have multiple posts on your website that you’d like to add Video Schema to, doing so manually would be time-consuming. Thankfully, with the help of Rank Math PRO – you can easily & automatically add Video Schema to your existing posts (retroactively). Here’s how:
1 Generate Video Schema for Old Posts/Pages
Rank Math PRO has a built-in feature to Generate Video Schema for Old Posts/Pages, available in the WordPress admin area. Simply navigate to Rank Math’s Status Page by heading to Rank Math > Status & Tools.
In the Status & Tools page, click the Database Tools tab.
From the list of tools, scroll down a bit and this is where you’ll find the option to generate Video Schema for old posts and pages.
Upon clicking Generate, it works by scanning all the posts on your website where the Auto Detect video option is enabled. And it will also add all relevant posts (that now also have Video Schema) to your website’s Video Sitemap…
2 Autodetect Video for Specific Post Types
You can enable Rank Math to autodetect videos only for specific post types. To configure this, enable Autodetect Video option in Rank Math > Title and Meta Settings available to your post types.
Note: Rank Math will autodetect video for Schema only when the Schema Module is enabled under WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Dashboard > Modules.
And, that’s it! If you still have any questions on automatically adding Video Schema with Rank Math, feel free to reach our support team — as we’re always here to help.
