Hi guys, i have been looking at the schema for my site and seeing how the events are picked up. looking at what google search console has identified so far, it seems to be collecting and placing the events into multiple locations, for example events and blog posts, this is going to cause me problems as not all my events are being picked up under events markup, so when this is published on google search results, we will be missing lots of events. can you tell me why this is happening and how it can be resolved.

thanks

Hi there,

This is the answer from Google why:

https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/34441?hl=en

So for example if some of your events are duplicated content of other events, Google may not index all of them.

Ways to avoid this is you make sure each upcoming event has some unique content, and with that you may want to set all expired events to not be indexed or included in the site’s xml sitemap.

Here’s a link to a code example that shows how to add a noindex meta tag to expired Event Espresso 4 events:

Here’s another code example that works with the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin that sets expired events to not be included in the generated XML sitemaps:

You can add the above to a functions plugin or into your WordPress theme’s functions.php file.
