How To Solve Headline Missing And Required Error For Blogger Template


The other day when I checked this blog with Structured Data Testing, it indicated that there are 3 Errors as shown below:

How To Solve Headline Missing And Required Error For Blogger Template

This is how to overcome the value for the headline field as required by Articles Rich Snippets.

1. Log into your Blogger Dashboard.

2. Click Template.

3. Click  Edit HTML.

4. Search for this line:

<h2 class='post-title entry-title'>

Note: I am using the Simple Template by Josh Peterson, and I found there are two (2) sets of the above mentioned code. Use the SECOND one.

5. Add this code: itemprop="headline" AFTER the word entry-title'.

6. After adding the code, now it should look like this:

<h2 class='post-title entry-title' itemprop="headline">
7. Click Save template button.

Now check your site with Structured Data Testing. The red color remark, headline: missing and required should be gone now.

* Here is how to solve image missing and required error.
