I have created a simple test page to test Schema.org Microdata.

When tested in Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool it appears as it should, displaying the address and job title below the green URL in the search result.

Now when I test this in Google, the address and job title are not displayed and it’s as if the Microdata is not there at all.

Has anyone else experienced this issue?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

After more researching a lot of people on the Google Help forums are saying it can take up to 4-8 weeks for Google to put use to the Microdata... – tenderloin Aug 21 '13 at 5:32

It does take time for Google to crawl your site and for rich snippets to appear in your search results, as indicated here:

Google Webmaster Tools - Rich snippets not appearing

Review the checklist there, and after a few weeks if it still doesn't appear, then use the form here to let Google know:

Google Webmaster Tools - Rich snippets feedback

You may also use the Fetch As Google tool to trigger crawling, as covered here:

Google Webmaster Tools - Fetch as Google
