Google / Schema issues making google unhappy

Postby ZASales » Tue May 07, 2019 9:46 am

Has anyone tested their product pages on google structured data testing tool and seen all the errors you get?
Key things are missing and it's affecting google's ability to recognize out product pages as items for sale.

one in particular that killing it is: availability in stock (The value of availability is invalid. Valid values are: [http://schema.org/Discontinued|http://schema.org/InStock|http://schema.org/InStoreOnly|http://schem)

The URL and a number of other things that should be showing up are not.

While I appreciate all the nice templates were provided the coders really need to be on top of this stuff as it's a major factor in getting our products recognized organically. At least give us a tab to stick this stuff in ourselves or something.

Google has been getting more strict on rich snippets in the last few years and it seems there have been many changes on what is required and what is not. For the availability, this can be switched in the template directly (or an updated version can be sent) if you can tell us what ShopSite version and product template you are using.

Code would need to be written like [-- IF PRODUCT.GoogleAvailability "in stock" --]InStock[-- ELSE_IF PRODUCT.GoogleAvailability "out of stock" --]OutOfStock[-- END_IF --] etc. The options for availability are: InStock, LimitedAvailability OnlineOnly Discontinued InStoreOnly OutOfStock SoldOut PreOrder PreSale

Please email ShopSite, questions@shopsite.com, the answers to the above questions, and a summary of the issue, for further assistance.
