Google Sends "Fix Videos Markup For" Search Console Messages

With the launch of the new Google Search Console video enhancements report yesterday, a few hours later, Google began mass notifying sites with issues with their video markup via Google Search Console emails.

The notices read "Fix Videos markup for" and say "Google systems show that your site is affected by one Videos markup issue. This means that your Videos pages might not appear as rich results in Google Search." "Search Console has created a new report just for this rich result type. The new report enables you to identify, fix, and resubmit affected pages to Google so they can start appearing in Search Results with rich result features."

Here is a screen shot that was sent to me for a site in my Google Search Console profiles (not this one):

Google Fix Video Markup Warnings

Google probably sent out hundreds, if not thousands, of these notifications over the day.

Are some people that notified me they got these reports.

If you get this notification, Google will help you by walking you through what the issues are and what to do to fix them.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
