Google search console returning- Videos  Missing field "description"

Recommended Posts

Just launched a 7.1 version of my site samfaulkner.co.uk. but have received a Google Search Console Warning email.

Apparently, there is a missing field "description" on some of the videos I am using. 

I am not sure what is causing this.

The offending videos are in coded blocks streaming from Vimeo.

My initial question is...

Is this missing description something I need to resolve on Vimeo or something I need to do in Squarespace (if so how?).

This is a sample of the code.

<div style="padding:100% 0 0 0;position:relative;">
  <a href=/fashion-films/#stella style="position:absolute; top:0; left:0; display:inline-block; width:100%; height:100%; z-index:5;"></a>
  <iframe Fashion Films
    src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/772204608?background=1&autoplay=1&quality=240p&loop=1&title=0&byline=0&portrait=0" style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen>
<div class="overlay">
    <h3>ADIDAS x STELLA</h3>

You can fix this by adding a description to each video in Vimeo 🙂. To do this: 

  1. Log on to Vimeo
  2. Go to the Library
  3. Click on the title of your video
  4. Click on the description field below the player and edit it
  5. Press return/Enter on your keyboard or click outside of the field to save your changes.
