How to add Structured Data to RSBlog

Updated 14 Dec, 2019

Google Structured Data integrates perfectly with RSBlog! All you have to do is to make sure that the integration is enabled and then you'll be able to assign a Content Type to an RSBlog Post easily. Let's see how to check if the integration is enabled. Bare in mind that by default it should be enabled.

Enable Integration

As with all of the integrations, you need to navigate to Components > Google Structured Data > Configuration and click the Integrations Tab where all the Integrations are listed.


Find the "RSBlog" Integration in the list and make sure that it is enabled with the green checkmark indicator as shown in the screenshot below.

Add Article Structured Data to RSBlog Posts

Let's see how you can add the Article Content Type to RSBlog Posts. From the Components menu, choose Google Structured Data, nagivate to the Items section and click on the New button to create a new Structured Data Item.

On the next page, you will see the following 3 options where you will need to select the Article Content Type and the RSBlog Integration as shown in the screenshot below.

Click Save to return to the same page. Once the item is saved 2 new sections appearing.

  • Article: This section helps you map the content type properties with Page options, Meta Properties, Site info and more.
  • Publishing Rules: This is where you can select the pages where the structured data is going to be generated to.

To learn more details on how you can use these sections visit the How to Add Structured Data to Pages documentation page.

Publishing Rules

In case, you don't want to generate the Article Content Type to all posts, you can use the available publishing rules to target specific posts. The RSBlog Integration implements the following publishing rules:

Post Target specific RSBlog Posts only.
Category Target all products assigned to specific RSBlog categories.

To learn more about the Publishing Rules section visit the How to add Structured Data to Pages documentation page.

Remember, in case you don't enable any publishing rules, the structured data will be generated on all RSBlog posts.


The Structured Data is generated only in the Products component view where a single J2Store Product is displayed. The Category or List views are not currently supported.
