HTML Checking for Large Sites
Rocket Validator integrates the W3C Validator HTML checker into an automated web crawler.
The “itemprop” attribute was specified, but the element is not a property of any item.
itemprop attribute has been found in the document, but it cannot be associated to any item. Most probable cause is the lack of an
itemscope attribute defining an item.
Microdata allows nested groups of properties, which must be scoped to the item they belong to, as in this example:
<div itemscope> <p>My name is <span itemprop="name">Liza</span> and I'm <span itemprop="age">48</span> years old.</p> </div>

A <meta> element without a itemprop or property attributes has been found in an unexpected place.
While the <meta> element is commonly used within the <head> section of the document, it can also be used within the <body> section, for example in the context of defining microdata, as in this example:
<div itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Offer"> Price: $<span itemprop="price">1.00</span> <meta itemprop="priceCurrency" content="USD" /> </div>
When used within the <body> section, the <meta> element is required to have a itemprop or property, and a content attribute, and it can’t have a http-equiv or charset attribute.
A common cause for this issue is including a <meta> element that was intended for the <head> section (for example one containing a http-equiv attribute in the <body> , for example:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> <form> ... </form>
link elements are used to link to external resources, such as stylesheets, scripts, and icons. Including relevant attributes in the link element helps provide additional information about the linked resource.
rel: The rel attribute specifies the relationship between the current document and the linked resource, and can also provide additional information about the type of linked resource. For example, using rel="stylesheet" for a linked CSS file or rel="icon" for a linked favicon.
itemprop: If the linked resource is an HTML document or a microdata vocabulary like Schema.org, use itemprop to specify properties the linked document or vocabulary defines.
property: If the linked resource is an RDF resource, use property to provide metadata about the relationship between the current document and the resource being linked.
Example with rel attribute:
<head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css"> <!-- Other meta tags --> </head>
Example with itemprop and property attributes:
<head> <link itemprop="mentions" href="https://example.com/"> <link property="schema:citation" href="https://example.com/article.html"> <!-- Other meta tags --> </head>
By adding itemprop, property, or rel as necessary, you can ensure your link elements provide appropriate context and semantic meaning to your HTML document.
A <meta> element without a content, itemprop or property attributes has been found in an unexpected place.
Check its attributes and context - depending on the section of the document (<head> or <body>), the <meta> element allows different attributes.
When the itemtype attribute is specified on an HTML element, the boolean attribute itemscope must also be present in that element.
Here’s an example of how to use the itemscope attribute with the itemtype attribute:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person"> <p><span itemprop="name">Liza Jane</span></p> <p><span itemprop="email">email@example.com</span></p> </div>
In this example, the itemscope attribute is used to indicate that the div element is a microdata item, and the itemtype attribute is used to specify that the type of this item is http://schema.org/Person.
If you don’t need to specify a type for the data represented by the HTML element, you can simply remove the itemtype attribute. For example:
<div itemscope> <p><span itemprop="name">John Doe</span></p> <p><span itemprop="email">firstname.lastname@example.org</span></p> </div>
