Rank Math has made it easy to select a Schema type that you use the most on your website from the wide range of built-in Schema types…
You can use the Article Schema Type on all the articles on your website. By default, Rank Math uses
Pages and for
Posts but you can change that by navigating to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Titles & Meta > Posts/Pages.
In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through how to use the Article Schema Type on posts and pages – let’s get started:
1 Edit Your Post or Page
To set the Article Schema Type open your post/page by clicking on Edit post as shown below:
2 Open Rank Math In The Gutenberg Sidebar
Click on the Rank Math SEO icon that displays alongside this post/page’s SEO score to open the SEO settings for this page.
Or alternatively, click the three vertical dots in the top right-hand corner of the edit page and selecting Rank Math in the Plugins section – as shown below:
3 Navigate to the Schema Settings for This Post/Page
Click on the Schema tab in the Rank Math SEO. If it doesn’t appear here, ensure that you have Rank Math set to Advanced mode and have enabled the Schema module in your dashboard by navigating to Rank Math > Dashboard in your WordPress admin area. Then click on Schema Generator.
4 Navigate to the Schema Builder
Search for the Article Schema type and click on Use to open the Schema Builder.
5 Fill the Details in the Schema Builder
Now, Rank Math’s Schema Builder will show up. This is where you can set the headline, SEO description, keywords, and other fields available for the Schema type you’ve selected.
Headline: The default variable
%seo_title% will populate the SEO Title you’ve set for the post/page.
Description: If you leave this field with the default variable
%seo_description%, then Rank Math will use the meta description you’ve added for the article.
Keywords: The Keywords field is set with the default variable
%keywords%, which would automatically populate the focus keyword(s) you’ve set for the post/page. If you wish to add the keywords manually, be sure to separate them with commas.
The keywords you add to the Schema Markup will describe the content to the search engines. Although there isn’t a limit on the number of keywords you can add to this field, adding a huge number of keywords can do more harm than good.
Search engines’ usage of meta keywords is a separate topic for discussion; however, Bing uses them cautiously only to identify spam pages. Hence, we recommend leaving the field with the default value or add only a reasonable number of keywords.
6 Enable Speakable Option PRO
The Enable Speakable option (available in Rank Math PRO) lets you add speakable attributes to your Article Schema. You can enable it by selecting Enable from the drop-down list. Once you enable it you can then Add Property by clicking on Add Property. You can add the headline and summary or any other cssSelectors here.
7 Update Your Post or Page
Click on Save for this Post once you have made the changes. Now simply update the existing post/page as you normally would do after making a change or click on Publish (if this is a newly created post/page).
You can then check your Schema with the help of the Schema Testing Tool.
