Here's why your chosen social and SEO plugin should check for minimum and maximum image resolution, aspect ratio, maximum image file size, and duplicate meta tags.

Last month Yoast added a feature to their Yoast SEO (aka WordPress SEO) plugin to allow redirecting attachment pages to the media itself (image, video, PDF, etc). For example, an attachment page with an image would be redirected to the full size image. The reason given by Yoast is that attachment pages are simply an HTML wrapper around an image, and provide little to no value for SEO.

This may be true IF the attachment page does not include any Schema markup — either as JSON-LD or microdata — to provide Google (Bing and Pinterest too) with information about the media, AND you’ve not entered a title, caption, alternative text, and description for your media in the WordPress Media library (if you haven’t, you really should).

Have you defined a featured image for a parent and wished its children used the same featured image automatically?

If you’re using the WPSSO Core plugin — and have selected a custom image for Facebook, Google, Twitter, and/or Pinterest — would you like the children of that page and/or category to inherit those custom images automatically?

A new Free add-on for the WPSSO Core plugin has been released. The WPSSO REST API (aka WPSSO REST) add-on includes a head element in the WordPress REST API query result to provide an html, json, and parts array.

Most of the information gathered by the WPSSO Core plugin and its WPSSO JSON add-on is available for customizing in the Document SSO metabox — but what happens when you need to customize a specific and unique Schema property that isn’t shown in the Document SSO metabox?

Two things to keep in mind:
-
1) An aggregate rating value is calculated from several customer ratings / reviews for the current webpage content (e-commerce product reviews, for example).
-
2) Google prefers — and often double-checks — that Schema markup reflects the current content of the webpage. So, if you want to manually set aggregate rating and/or review values in your Schema markup, make sure these customer ratings and/or reviews also appear in your webpage content (ie. the ratings and reviews are visible).
-
Here are a few options to add Schema aggregateRating values automatically or manually. ;-)

Did you know WordPress creates thumbnails from the images you upload?
-
Did you also know that thumbnail / resized images must be sharpened?
-
And did you know that WordPress does not do any sharpening when resizing images?

The Organization name, logo and sameAs properties (shown here) provide only the most basic information required for Google’s Knowledge Graph, but several additional properties are also available in the Schema Organization markup. ;-)

It’s been a very productive two weeks of coding for the WPSSO Core plugin and it’s WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup add-on.

On April 26th – just two weeks ago – WPSSO Core v4.0.0 was released, which included support for the new Gutenberg editor. Since then, WPSSO Core v4.1.0, v4.2.0, and v4.3.0 were also released (the last one just today), along with WPSSO JSON v1.25.0 and v1.26.0.

In case you missed the update notices and posts about those versions, here’s a quick summary of those important changes. ;-)

The new Gutenberg editor is just around the corner, and developers still have not tackled a serious design issue with the notification system -- here's why WPSSO is ditching both the current WordPress and the new Gutenberg notification systems.
