My problem

I have added JSON-LD structured data to my site about a local software conference. The markup is valid in Google's on Structured Data Testing Tool.

However, Google's own Search Console does not detect any structured data on the same URL:

Questions and answers here

Both don't seem to apply - I'm not complaining about search results taking long time to propagate, but about the very JSON-LD being recognized by one Google tool but not by the other.


The site as scraped by Google a few good gours after the JSON-LD as in place. The TTL for the HTML files is set to 5 minutes.

My question

Why doesn't the search console recognize my structured site data, and how can I fix it?

  • How many time is your site online after publishing of json-ld snippet? Do you have implemented the search console validation before or after publishing of json-ld snippet? You should know, the data in the search console is aggregated from many data centers of Google - it could happen, that you should just wait a bit - i haven't found any obstacles for json-ld reading. The cache version of Google contains the snippet too. Even if json-ld is implemented by something like tag manager - it is on the place, as it should be. – Evgeniy Apr 13 '18 at 11:46
  • Thanks @Evgeniy! See my answer - it actually took the search console one week to parse the JSON-LD. Strange. – Adam Matan Apr 15 '18 at 5:23

    One week? What a rocket-like tool ;) – Evgeniy Apr 16 '18 at 10:13

All I had to do is wait. About one week after the site has been submitted, the search console recognized the JSON-LD. Why it took 7 days instead of, say, 7 seconds, is beyond my understanding.

I still don't see the event excerpt in the search results - hope that would be available soon.
