Test schema.org Markup Validation

After you enable schema.org types on your site content, you will need to test the generated structured data markup to make sure it’s valid and error free.

Google offers an official Rich Results Test tool that you can use to test your site’s structured data. The testing tool provide you with a list of errors and warnings to help you validate the markup.

You can fire the Structured Data Testing Tool page on your browser and use a direct link to your post or page to test it.

This documentation page explains how to test your page structured data with a simple click.

Test Structured Data Markup

Depending on the targeting location rules you’ve set earlier to configure schema.org types on your website content, if a page or a post has structured data, you can test it by clicking the Schema menu that shows in WordPress admin bar.

Within the WordPress admin bar, hover on Schema menu, and see your options.
