Blog detection issue fix

Detecting a blog can be easy for humans, hard for computers.
We at WooRank try to detect your blog by scanning the links on your webpage. If we encounter a link that contains the word "blog" in the text, we flag your webpage as "having a blog".

For example, if you have following markup somewhere on the page, we detect your blog:
<a href="">Our blog</a>

Obviously this is a very simple way of detecting a blog, but this is by design. We aim at detecting 90% of the time and offer you the possibility to communicate your blog location. This way we keep the amount of false detections at a minimum. To identify your blog location to us, and by extension to any other interested third party, you need to attach a piece of metadata.

Use this MetaData Tool to create one for your site and allow a few hours for our caching system to update.

  • To express it in JSON-LD format, use:

<script type="application/ld+json">

    "@context": "",
    "@type": "Blog",
    "url": ""

  • The same can also be expressed in microdata:

<div itemscope itemtype="">
<link itemprop="url" href=""/>

In all of those cases we would associate the url as a blog with your website. works too.
However, if you are using words like “news”, “media”, and “update”, we would not detect it as a blog.
