Google Search Console Adds New Report For Math Problem Markup via @sejournal, @MattGSouthern

Google is adding new data to Search Console to help site owners track the appearance of practice problems and math solvers rich results.

Practice problems and math solvers structured data markup was introduced in March to help sites take advantage of the rise in educational searches brought on by students learning from home.

Google says practice content and math assistance are among the most requested types of information from students.

Practice problems refers to material that helps learners test their knowledge of a subject, while math solvers refers to explanations that help students get unstuck while working on math problems.

Sites with eligible content can utilize the new markup to increase brand awareness in Google search results and potentially increase traffic as a result of the enhanced visibility.

Google has been getting faster at providing site owners with data on the appearance of rich results after introducing support for new types of structured data. This update to Search Console is a prime example of Google’s expediency.

When an error is fixed, the same reports can be used to trigger Google to recrawl the affected pages and validate that corrections have been made.

In addition, site owners can use Google’s Rich Results Test to check structured data markup on a page by page basis, either by submitting a URL or copying and pasting code snippets.

It’s important to note that valid structured data markup does not guarantee Google will display a rich result for a given page. The markup makes a page eligible to serve rich results at Google’s discretion.
