    in order to have google rich snippets working correctly, they request to find the mailadress automatically on the frontpage.

    And the Test tool (http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets) says its not. And when looking into the source, that’s true, too. There is no mailadress at all.

    So I thought that maybe WP or the theme, or my seo-plugin (yoast) will take care of that. But they are not.

    What is the best way for me to do that? A quick solution would be great, but maybe this is an issue for a feature request for your themes?

    Hi Ismael,

    thanks a lot for those two plugins. The first does a lot, the second is brandnew.

    The thing is, that I am using the SEO-Plugin by yoast, and that one is supporting rich snippets, too. So I am a bit afraid of mingeling those plugins.

    Actually, the only thing that seems to be missing is the mailadress on the frontpage. Any idea how I can do this in the best way?

    I’m not really familiar with rich snippets. Let me tag the rest of the support team. Maybe they can give us more info about this.




    Yes, that would be great!




    I read some articles and actually you just need to make sure that your email address uses the same domain like your website – see: http://www.razorsocial.com/how-to-set-up-googl-author-rich-snippets-to-increase-web-traffic/ – then google will recognize it automatically. Imo it would be a big mistake to insert the email address directly into the html source code because of spam bots.



    I agree with your point. But do you understand what google is trying to say here: http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/9696/w39s.png


    This confueses me, and I would like to optimize this, because not all snippets contain the right authorship and all…




    Hi, again,

    I mixed up this issue with a facebook issue, where facebook is looking for an emailadress on the frontpage. So this might not be the problem.

    But still, the snippet tool says it cannot identify the author automatically. I don’t get it, because it’s just there: rel=”author”>Jana Friedrich<

    Any ideas to that?




    You can try to replace the author link with a custom link which contains the email address or the google plus profile link. In wp-contentthemessentenceincludesformat-standard.php search for


    and replace it with

    echo '<a href="http://plus.google.com/114875280596037755280" title="Beiträge von Jana Friedrich" rel="author">Jana Friedrich</a>';

    or use a mailto link instead…


    Hi, and thx.

    The SEO-Yoast-Team says, that this is rather a Google-Problem, so I’d rather not put my mailadress into html, too! ;-)

    Thanks again.



    Hi, again. I have another related issue.

    Please have a look at this Blogpost (http://www.hebammenblog.de/babyblues-im-wochenbett/)

    And have a look at this related screenshot (http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/9494/n6r.png), which shows the result of goole webmaster-tools. It says this post contains a hcard and it points to the website that created the pingback.

    I don’t know too much about hcards, but this seem strange and the way it should be.

    What do you think of this?

    Is this a theme-issue, since it is seo-ready?

    Or is it a Yoast-Issue?

    Or a google-problem?

    Argh ;-)

    Hope you can help.




    No sure why Google thinks this is a hcard but you can remove the pingback comments if you like. Open up wp-contentthemessentenceincludescomments.php and replace

    //get ping and trackbacks
    $ping_entries = get_comments(array( 'type'=> 'pings', 'post_id' => $post->ID ));

    echo "<h4 id='pingback_heading'>".__('Trackbacks & Pingbacks','avia_framework')."</h4>";

    <ol class="pingbacklist">
    * Loop through and list the pingbacks and trackbacks.
    wp_list_comments( array( 'type'=> 'pings', 'reverse_top_level'=>true ) );
    <?php } ?>





    thanks, but I like my pingbacks ;-)

    It seem, that this does not affect the authorship of the blogpost.


    So maybe this is just natural google behaviour.


    Best Boris
