Rich snippets or rich results are those snippets that highlight your website’s text or content in the most attentive way in search results. They could be an image, text, video, or more that classifies itself as a part of the Schema Markup. A website optimized for schema markup receives good search results ranking, which further improves its traffic for both user interaction as well as conversion.
The same can be applied to a Divi website. You can turn your straightforward content into Divi rich snippets. However, despite Divi’s optimized SEO configuration, it’s rare that without any other 3rd-party plugins and modules, your website’s content will appear in search results as rich snippets.
Therefore, to help you make your Divi website a complete rich snippet ready — that showcases not merely text but different content elements in the search result, we will overview different free and premium plugins and follow some steps to make a Divi website rich results enabled.

Now, let’s see how we can create rich snippets in Divi.
Using SEO Plugins
SEO plugins on WordPress are one of the most used plugins. Not only do they improve the website’s content quality, but they also guide you in the direction to make some crucial changes to the website to make it SEO-enabled. For instance, Set SEO titles/meta descriptions, XML Sitemap, Image SEO, Redirections, and much more. But with that, what you also get is that they support schema markup.
There are different WordPress SEO plugins available, but in this blog post, we’re only going to discuss the following,
As these are the widely used plugins to improve a website’s SEO. Let’s see how you can use these SEO plugins to make a Divi website rich snippets ready.
Making Divi Website Rich Snippets Ready With Rank Math SEO
Once you install the Rank Math plugin, it begins to set up different options to make your website SEO-ready. The first step involves setting up the basic configuration, such as on what level you want to use the Rank Math plugin that is Easy and Advanced.
Then after the Getting Started step, it asks you to provide basic details of your website in Your Site step. It includes fields to define your website’s niche, a logo for Google search results, and an image for social networks.
On completing that step and moving forward, it provides you with the option to connect it with Google Analytics in the Analytics step. Likewise with the other previous step, once you complete this, it opens another step. So, one by one, you have to configure settings according to your requirement and business. Once you reach the Ready stage, don’t hit the Return to dashboard; else, choose Setup Advanced Options.
Now, you have to open the Schema Markup step and in that choose Article schema markup for Schema Type for Posts, then further you have to choose Blog Post in Article Type. If your posts are published by an organization and the organization’s name will be displayed in the posts, you can select Article as Article Type. Otherwise, stick with Blog Post or News Article if your website is of news domain.
Then move to Schema Type for Pages and select their schema type per the very nature of your site’s pages. If most of your website’s pages are of Products, then choose Product. If pages are for services, then select Services. Or, for the best, keep it None because you can apply schema type for pages when you create them.
Do the same for Schema Type for Pages, and once you’re done with that, click Save and Continue. In this way, using the Rank Math plugin, you can apply schema markup on your website’s posts, pages, and project right when you’ll install it. However, if you don’t want to set up a schema markup during basic configuration, you can try the alternative method.
After installing the plugin, go to Rank Math → Titles & Meta
Then go to Post Types: → Posts, and explore the settings and apply schema markup as we discussed before.
We haven’t assigned the Schema Markup for pages. If all the pages follow the same schema, then you can assign it right in the Setup Wizard. Otherwise, edit an existing page or create a new one, then head over to the Rank Math icon at the bottom.
Then, open the Schema option, delete the predefined value and click Schema Generator.
It will open a schema generator popup, where you can select the required Schema Markup for the page.
Once selected the schema markup, input the appropriate details, and then click Save for this post. The key thing to notice here is that you have to use the schema shortcode to get Rank Math working.
In this way, you’ll make your Divi website rich snippets ready using the Rank Math plugin. However, the downside of using this plugin is that for pages, you have to follow the same process repeatedly, which might be tiring and even not satisfy you.
Making Website Divi Rich Snippets Ready With Yoast SEO
The way it’s complicated with the Rank Math plugin to make your website rich results ready, in Yoast SEO, you don’t have to. As soon as you install Yoast SEO, it by default applies the appropriate schema to your website. However, if you want to configure schema markup in Yoast SEO manually, follow the below steps.
On your WordPress Dashboard, go to SEO → Search Appearance
Here, you get the fields and option to define your website’s type for Knowledge Graph & Schema.org (organization or person), how your website’s page should appear with the title, and meta description (the meta description you’d use on this page will reflect for the homepage).
Once added the required information, move to the Content Types tab. Here, you get the option to select Schema Type for Posts, Pages, and Projects. You need to head over to the Schema Settings in each of the settings, then select Web Page as Default Page Type. However, if your website’s pages reflect some other functionality, then you can choose a different Default Page Type. Remember, for posts, you need to keep the Web Page as Default. Plus, if some pages will be different from the type you’ve selected, you need to change their type while creating them.
Once selected appropriate types, click Save changes, and your website posts, pages, and projects are optimized for rich snippets.
Divi Rich Snippets Limitation With SEO Plugins
Well, the first limitation with SEO plugins to make Divi website schema ready is that they’re designed to be more compatible with Gutenberg Editor than Divi Builder. You cannot use Yoast’s and Rank Math’s blocks like Yoast Breadcrumbs, Rank Math FAQ, How to, and more in Divi visual builder.
Yes, Rank Math works in Divi Builder, but it only changes page type, not individual elements on the page. So, you won’t have FAQs and Review schema markup on the same page. With Yoast, you don’t get any Divi builder support; however, you can change an individual page’s schema type by switching it to the Gutenberg editor.
So, it means you cannot make Divi website rich results ready? No, you can and that too in an intuitive way by using the schema modules of the Divi Plus plugin.
