I know you mentioned this would be fixed in this release but it appears not to be. Not a huge deal but some key info is missing.

I would suggest location.name and image at a minimum should have something meaningful.


Also got warnings in my own site's search console.



warning
name
The name field is recommended. Please provide a value if available.
warning
image
The image field is recommended. Please provide a value if available.
warning
offers
The offers field is recommended. Please provide a value if available.
warning
performer
The performer field is recommended. Please provide a value if available.

This should be fixed (specifically the name one). :unsure:

If a cover image is set, a value for image is also set.

I've also made some minor improvements to the existing ones.

Yeah those are confusing. There's name which typically maps to event name which you're doing ok and there's location.name which is part of the location object. I guess if you wanted to be fancy you can parse it and pull that out of Places API but it may not always be present.

I think it's fine for now, I see you're including the cover image now which is good.

I am seeing the following warnings in Google Search Console:
  1. Missing field "eventAttendanceMode"
  2. Missing field "offers"
  3. Missing field "eventStatus"
  4. Missing field "performer"
  5. Missing field "organizer"
I don't think this has been fixed. Please address this. As you may know a lot of forums have been taking a nosedive loosing up to 90% of traffic. While I don't expect that the above issues are whats causing it, it is however very important to get rid of all warnings ASAP.

Could you please address this in the next release? I would highly appreciate it.

They're not errors, they're warnings. The message is literally "The X field is recommended. Please provide a value if available.".

At the moment, I only plan on adding values for organizer and the newly added eventStatus.

For the others, there is no suitable or specific value available.
