+Aaron Bradley quick question for you if I may

Posted in: General by Richard Hearne on August 11, 2015

+Aaron Bradley quick question for you if I may. Do you know whether Google's prescribed JSON-LD practice of including the entire article in the "articleBody" property is actually followed by many websites?  If not is there a more realistic way to identify the articleBody?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Hi +Richard Hearne!

    I wouldn't necessary call this "prescriptive" as its use isn't required by Google (at least not for article rich snippets - http://bit.ly/1FSxAJJ).  But if you are providing a value for this in JSON-LD, then it does need to be included in the JSON-LD code block (i.e. because the expected type for articleValue is text, you can't use a URL that points to the article text).

    I frankly wouldn't worry too much about this unless, for some reason, the article body (that is, the HTML of the article itself) isn't being made available to Google in a spiderable fashion – and then I'd if possible strip out the code and just include the text in articleBody.
