    Google: New Structured Data Testing Tool and Improved Documentation

    New Structured Data Testing Tool, documentation, and more
    Google Webmaster Central Blog
    Thursday, January 15, 2015

    Structured data markup helps your content get discovered in search results and across Google properties. We’re excited to share several updates to help you author and publish markup on your website:




    Structured Data Testing Tool
    The new Structured Data Testing Tool better reflects how Google interprets a web page’s structured data markup.

    Name:  sdtt-screenshot.jpg
Views: 76
Size:  43.0 KB

    It provides the following features:

    • Validation for all Google features powered by structured data
    • Support for markup in the JSON-LD syntax, including in dynamic HTML pages
    • Clean display of the structured data items on your page
    • Syntax highlighting of markup problems right in your HTML source code


    New documentation and simpler policy
    We've clarified our documentation for the vocabulary supported in structured data based on webmasters' feedback. The new documentation explains the markup you need to add to enable different search features for your content, along with code examples in the supported syntaxes. We'll be retiring the old documentation soon.

    We've also simplified and clarified our policies on using structured data. If you believe that another site is abusing Google's rich snippets quality guidelines, please let us know using the rich snippets spam report form.

    re: Google: New Structured Data Testing Tool and Improved Documentation

    Hi djbaxter,

    Thanks for this, it's very useful!

    But mine are coming up for errors on logo and URL.

    Do you know where I would find the code to input for these two fields?

    Cheers

    Sorry no. I found the sort last night when I couldn't sleep but I haven't yet tested the tool. Have you checked the link to documentation?

    Re: Google: New Structured Data Testing Tool and Improved Documentation

    I'm also getting the error on logo and URL.

    I wonder if those 2 factors aren't in there if your schema isn't giving the weight it should?

    Very interesting.

    Also, the old tool had a search engines results image preview.

    This isn't on the new tool. Has anyone else found the equivalent somewhere else for the new tool?

    Hi Joshua,

    Re: Google: New Structured Data Testing Tool and Improved Documentation

    Wow, I'm totally lost.

    I thought this was a new tool developed by Google.

    But this is just a custom tool developed by you, correct Jonathan?

    Yeah, I was really confused haha.

    I was wondering how you got a developers.google site for your tool but since I don't do any developing I just thought maybe Google did that for developers as a way to host their own custom tool.

    Oh man, humbling experience.
