google Schema problems 'itemreviewed'

Postby lneibauer » Wed Feb 12, 2020 1:51 pm

Afternoon all,
This problem seems to have started at the beginning of February and I am having a tough time figuring it our. All of a sudden I am getting a google schema an "invalid object type for field 'itemreviewed'. Has anyone run into this issue before and how I might be able to fix it. We have about 6000 SKUs and maybe 1200 reviews on the site. Reviews were not turned on from day 1. I have been using the Google Structured testing tool and the Google search console for this URL but this is just one of 900ish that have this issue. https://www.churchsupplier.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/8758-I-Said-a-Prayer-of-Healing.html

Any help would be greatly appreciated in this matter

Google recently became picky regarding some terminology that used to be acceptable. We are testing a solution but it will require an update to version 14.0. The only workaround would be to turn off the microdata in Reviews by unchecking 'Enable Schema.org microdata' in Merchandising > Product Reviews > Configure.

Here's some more specific info from engineering:
This looks like a new Google-specific requirement for itemReviewed, "Thing" is a generic item type that is valid for schema.org but now they want it to be a more specific type from their list of allowed types.

Thanks David, I assume you are talking about a future version 14 release since I am already on Version 14.0 r3.2. is there an approximate time-frame for this patch / fix?

I also ran across this error and wonder if the fix is available or in the wings? Can somebody update us on this?

Yes, 14.0 sp1 was released this week and addressed that error. However, it looks like with that problem resolved a new issue pops up. You would see Google report:

Error:
Either "offers", "review", or "aggregateRating" should be specified

So, we are working on a solution to that as well as documenting a template solution that you could also make. I'll post a link once we have the documented solution.

Here's the current solution which we will soon be adding to our Themes in an update to 14.0 sp1:

If you use reviews remember to turn off the microdata by going to:
Merchandising Tools > Product Reviews > Configure Product Reviews
