For some reason they didn't add support for this in the tool or give SEO plugins the ability to customize it. I contacted Jono Alderson from Yoast who linked this thread to me. It's great to see that Yoast is actively following this and adding features quickly. web stories meta description meta data title tag for wordpress beta plugin Google Web Stories for WordPress does not currently support custom metadata.

Adding Schema Markup to Your Web Stories in WordPress This is where Yoast comes in again. They will take care of this for you, as they can on other pages of your site. I wouldn't want to mess with adding custom schema code in WordPress when it's already in place for you. Using Yoast, I can automatically add various types of schemas to my web stories. Since Google's Structured Data Testing Tool is about to be deprecated, I started using Sitebulb's Replica Testing Tool. It works the same way as Google's version, allowing testing of URLs or code snippets. This is important to complete to ensure your schema is working properly. test google structured data with sitebulb version 4 Testing your Web Stories structured data implementation with Sitebulb's testing tool.
