How to Check Schema Markup

You can easily check schema markup using Google’s Rich Results Test or Schema Markup Validator by To test your schema markup, simply navigate to the tool of your choice and enter the URL or add a code snippet.

Adding schema markup to a webpage can help it appear more prominently in search engine results pages (SERPs) and increase the chances of getting clicked on. If you’re not already using schema markup on your website, you should be. 

In this blog post, let’s talk about how to check and test schema markup for your website so you can ensure that you’re implementing it correctly.

1. Google’s Rich Result Test

Google’s Rich Result Test is one of the most popular tools used for validating schema markup. It’s a free tool provided by Google that allows you to test your schema markup and help you identify errors in the schema markup and suggest ways to fix them.

With this tool, you can test specific URLs on your website or enter the code to see if your schema markup is working as intended. You can then see your webpage’s eligibility and data parsing errors related to the schema types supported by Google’s featured Rich Results

However, it does come with certain limitations:

  1. Limited Types of Rich Results: The tool only supports a subset of the rich result types.
  2. No Validation for All Markup: While the tool validates the syntax of structured data, it doesn’t check the validity of all markup. For example, it may not flag certain inappropriate properties or values.
  3. Limited to Single Page Tests: The tool can only test individual URLs. There’s no way to bulk test multiple pages or an entire domain at once.
  4. Doesn’t Reflect Real-Time Changes: Since the tool tests the live URL, any changes made to the code after the test won’t be reflected unless the page is tested again.

2. Schema Markup Validator by

The tool is easy to use, you just need to enter the URL of the page you want to check and click on the “Validate” button. The tool will show your code alongside the testing results, making it easy for you to debug any errors and issues.

If you need to validate schema regularly and don’t want to open a new tab and copying the URL multiple times, use the following SEO Bookmarklet to open Schema Validator to check your exact page in a single mouse click (just copy the code and save as a bookmark): 

javascript: (function() {''+window.location)
