Training Objective

Validate that each property is being successfully mapped to the correct content on the page. Publish the template.

The Highlighter validates using the example URLs, URL patterns, or x-paths previously captured.

 Check that:

  1. The “Highlight content” is referring to the page you are validating
  2. There is a highlight for each property from our list.
  3. The “Highlight Content” is correct
Highlight Content Review


“No matching X-path” errors

Not every page set will be perfectly templated. Sometimes, the content on the page that we’ve highlighted to define a property won’t be in the exact same place page-to-page. When this you’ll get an error message, “No matching xpath”.

DO NOT DELETE THE HIGHLIGHT. Instead, create a new highlight for the missing content. Moving forward the Schema App Highlighter will look at both spots for content to define a property. By creating another highlight, we’re building a cascading template that will be able to recognize when the information you want highlighted is contained in different places!

Revalidate the highlights for accuracy.

Review remaining pages

Depending on how many sample pages you provided when creating the page set, you will see “Page X of X” at the top left hand corner. Page 1 is the original page you loaded when you began highlighting, and all the sample pages are compared to it. 

Reviewing the page should be much faster, as there should be fewer highlights (if any) with a missing xpath.

Continue reviewing until you reach the final page.

Final validation

Given that you may be marking up 1,000s of pages, it is important to do one final review of the highlights before you publish.

Go through and check that for each page URL set, the properties are listed with the correct information!

Save & Finish

Once you’ve confirmed all is well and good, click Save & Finish!
