How to Fix publisher:missing and required Error from Blogger?

Blogger already rolled out (AMP) Accelerated Mobile pages articles which are mainly concern about mobile-friendly website. Because by using this AMP project Google finds out the fastest website and display them at the top of search engine result page.

Blogger SEO

AMP measure a site’s performance by several attributes. And among them, Publisher is a very important attribute. Through this attribute, the search robot can understand who the publisher of a website is?

Generally, the publisher is not the author or admin. You may think you are publishing articles so you are a publisher. This is absolutely wrong. Because you are the author or admin of your site but the publisher is your Site. For example, in my site
  • Author: Rabbi Khan
  • Publisher: Blogger Spice
The publisher is an item of https://schema.org/Organization. Two things are different from each other. Recently you will see publisher error in most of the Blogger template or WordPress theme. For finding the error you must use any structured data testing tool, just visit the below URL and by Click on Fetch URL test your Blog site.
  • https://developers.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/
If your Blogger template has this error then you will see the publisher:missing and required in red colour text like below image.

AMP articles error


This means the search engine can’t understand who is the publisher of your site? If you add the attribute with the author then it won’t help you to solve the issue. So in this tutorial, I will show you how exactly we can fix this error?


However, remember that Google hasn’t provided any specific guidelines to fix the error. So we can solve this issue in a different way. For this reason, I am sharing the solution which one I have used in my Blogger template to solve the issue.

Step 1 Go to https://www.blogger.com and Sign in to your account

Step 2 From Blogger Dashboard click on ->Template ->Edit HTML 

Step 3 And locate script like below from your Blogger template

<article class='post hentry' itemprop='blogPost' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/BlogPosting'>

Generally this markup remain below <b:includable id='post' var='post'> line.

Step 4 Now copy the below schema markup code and paste it below of <article class='post hentry' itemprop='blogPost' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/BlogPosting'> code.

<div itemprop='publisher' itemscope='' itemtype='https://schema.org/Organization'>
<div itemprop='logo' itemscope='' itemtype='https://schema.org/ImageObject' style='display:none;'>
      <img src='Your Logo URL Here'/>
      <meta content='Your Logo URL Here' itemprop='url'/>
  <meta content='380' itemprop='width'/>
  <meta content='100' itemprop='height'/>
    </div>
  <meta expr:content='data:blog.title' itemprop='name'/>
</div>

Customization

  • Please replace Your Logo URL Here with your logo image URL.
  • And alter the Logo Image width 380 and height 100. I have added this dimension because my logo Image URL size is 380px X 100px. Your Logo size may be different so first measure the dimension by using any photo editing software and then alter the dimension width and height. Google required 600px X 600px size publisher Logo.
Step 5 Now Click on Save template button from the top right corner of the screen.

Now it’s time to test the site to see the publisher attribute. If Error is still remaining then it will show the red alert. If not then you will see the result like below image.
publisher error fixed

Congratulation you have successfully fixed the publisher error. Publisher scripts for AMP articles we have place it inside Blog post. 

But we are using image object (Logo image) for our publisher identity for search engine, as a result, the image will be visible inside our Blog post. But don’t worry, in this script I have added a CSS code thus image object remain hidden inside Blog post body. 

Thanks for reading and following my guidelines. If you are facing any trouble for fixing the error then feel free to write to me.

    Can this error solve without logo ?
    My blog has no Logo. I try by adding a logo also but this error not solved.
    • BloggerSpice
      HI Ganesh..you must use an image instead of Logo. Its better to create an image with 600px X 600px dimension. Upload it in any image hosting server or directly into Blogger static page. Then place the image URL inside "YOUR Logo URL Here text".

      <img src='Your Logo URL Here'/>

      You don't need to create any professional logo. Even you can use any image instead of logo. Google will detect the Image only. but standard dimension is 600px X 600px.

      Thank you. :-d

    hello sir, im still getting 36% error please help me .. www.tricks4hacker.com

      I just checked you site. it has several error due to coding.

      headline error
      mainEntityOfPage error
      and Image error

      You can solve headline error and mainEntityOfPage error but for image error you have to modify the default autoreadmore script.

      Please find the code like below
      <h1 class='post-title entry-title' itemprop='headline'>

      and replace it by below code
      <h1 class='post-title entry-title' itemprop='name headline'>

      Again Please find the code like below
      <a expr:href='data:post.link' itemprop='url'><data:post.title/></a>

      and replace it by below code
      <a expr:href='data:post.link' itemprop='url mainEntityOfPage'><data:post.title/></a>

      Now it willdisplay only image error. You can see the below example that I have modified the default auto readmore script for removing image error.

      ^_^

      <div itemprop='image' itemscope='' itemtype='https://schema.org/ImageObject'>…

    • BloggerSpice
      Hi There :)
      For adding logo you have to use "Blogger Header" widget and upload the logo. once you upload the logo he use "Instead of title and description" option. But you should create and resize the logo by using any photo editing tools like Illustrator and PhotoShop.

      please follow my tutorial from below URL to upload logo in blogger theme.
