Try schema.org metadata for WebApplication. It looks like that. <body itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/WebApplication"> <h1 itemprop="name">YOUR_APP_NAME</h1> <meta itemprop="about" content="short_info_about_your_app" /> <meta itemprop="browserRequirements" content="requires FileAPI support" /> ... </body>

This looks like a mix-up on our (Google's) side -- I'll pass it on to the team to check out. Thanks!

Google Search doesn’t seem to support Rich Snippets for homepages. This is currently not documented, but confirmed by the Google employee @methode (on SO): We (Google) don't accept rich snippets for homepages; rich snippet annotations should be placed on leaf pages.

They're both telling the truth. Schema.org just provides a vocabulary: an agreed way to represent information. The things which use that vocabulary, like Google Search, can have their own requirements. In the case of FAQPage, Google uses the vocabulary to represent a certain type of information (FAQs) in a special way (an expanded search result). For it to ...

I think each value should represent a single area. If you were using the more expressive AdministrativeArea/GeoShape/Place values, you would (by definition) use one type per area (a Place always represents a single place etc.), so there is no reason to assume that a Text value would be handled in a different manner. Furthermore, the definition of areaServed ...

I've come across similar issue, Google will display rich snippets if they are correctly implemented using "site:" but they wont display it on normal results if they are not sure about the quality. John Muller discussed about this in his Office Hangouts Usually if you do a site: query for a site we will show the rich snippets if its implemented ...

Update 2016: The documentation got updated and it no longer contains the note. So now JSON-LD seems to be supported for the Products Rich Snippet. Google’s documentation for the Products Rich Snippet says for the single product page: We are in the process of implementing JSON-LD support for this Rich Snippet type. At the current time, we recommend using ...

Not a Schema issue, it's a website and Google issue The problem you are experiencing is pretty common and a side effect of GEO IP detection. The issue that your encountering is occurring due to the fact that your site is using some type of IP Geolocation service, often known as GEOIP. In short your site is automatically detecting where a site visitor is ...

I think this is a (long-standing) bug in Google’s SDTT. Relevant Stack Overflow question: Why does Google Testing Tool use the “id” attribute to generate a URL for the Microdata item? In Microdata, only the itemid attribute should be able to give a URI for the item, while the id attribute is only used for referencing elements on the same page (with the ...

Of course it should be possible to use any kind of URL design. It wouldn’t make sense for Google to exclude many sites just because they don’t use the URL’s query component for the search function. Did you check Google’s documentation? For the target property it says: "This must be a URL that points to an address on the same domain as the content being ...

Last week’s Schema.org release (version 2.0) introduced two relevant properties: mainEntity mainEntityOfPage This allows you to omit WebPageElement (which is not very useful in the first place) and use something like this: <body itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/WebPage"> <!-- properties about the web page --> <div itemprop="...

Here is a relevant article: ...don’t be discouraged if your Rich Snippets do a disappearing act. Google is constantly testing and modifying its algorithms. Here’s the best way to react: Leave your markup code as is for at least 8 weeks and just monitor the ups and downs of your Rich Snippets. They mean Google is continually analyzing your site. ...

The vocabulary Schema.org can be used: Question type: A specific question - e.g. from a user seeking answers online, or collected in a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. Answer type: An answer offered to a question; perhaps correct, perhaps opinionated or wrong. You can specify the accepted answer with the acceptedAnswer property. By the way, ...

We have been having very similar issues with our website. As with yours we have waited above that time period (6 months in fact), and all the testing tools show the markup as valid. The third bullet point is most likely the issue. The reasons Google outline are (in the form of answering a question): " Q: Why doesn't my site show rich snippets? I added ...

you should be clear, why do you want to make use of structured data? to go through the testing tool or to deliver correctly formatted and standard conform structured data to search engine, so your site will be included into Google News output? Google News Article needs image: that's the fact. Why it needs it? To show it to the people. What are solutions? ...

Not saying that this is the reason for the problem, but it seems that you shouldn’t use reviewCount unless you have reviews (in contrast to ratings, which ratingCount is for). From Google’s guidelines for the Reviews/Rating Rich Snippet: Make sure the reviews and ratings you mark up are readily available to users from the marked-up page. It should be ...

Yes, it’s a good idea. Structured data is not only useful for content you authored. It allows you to say anything about anything (see Semantic Web and Linked Data). You provide this video for your human visitors, possibly showing its title and other metadata. Why not also provide this data in a way that machines can easier understand? Or in other words: ...

Google doesn’t seem to document if it’s sufficient to provide this one the homepage, or if every page should have it. Note that they do state this for the Sitelinks Searchbox ("Add the markup only to the homepage of your site. It is not necessary to repeat the markup in other pages of your site."), so either they forgot to mention this for the Site Name, too,...

If you access the page (https://auto.ndtv.com/honda-bikes/grazia) and run it through the structured data testing tool (https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool) you will see that the page includes four types of structured data. The relevant one is Product, and it has 12 warnings: the markup uses datePublished, reviewBody, author, and ...

You want to apply the properties identified in both the Question scheme and Answer scheme as defined on Schema.org. In particular and at minimum, use the following attributes/properties: itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Question" on the DOM element wrapping entire set of question & answer content itemprop="name" (typically on an H1) wrapping the ...

Importing reviews into a website seems to be against Google's guidelines: Sites must collect ratings information directly from users and not from other sites. Review Guidelines for Local Businesses However the wording is fuzzy here. Do they mean that (1) you need to collect reviews directly through your domain, or that (2) you can use external tools to ...

I do not have SKU and unique identifier, so how can I fix these warnings? Is there any way I can by-pass these errors or do tweak in code? There is no way to fix this other than to provide the data. I have a doubt that Google may penalize in future because of these warnings. As long as it’s just a warning, you can still get the search result feature (...

Google guidelines make it clear that rich snippets are not guaranteed, even if the code is correct: Google does not guarantee that your structured data will show up in search results, even if your page is marked up correctly Those guidelines offer several reasons why a rich snippet may not be shown, many of which relate to the content itself. I ...

The order of structured data properties can't effect rankings. This is because Google says structured data doesn't affect rankings at all. For more information about how structured data actually affects SEO see: Is Schema.org structured data (in Microdata, JSON-LD, or RDFa) relevant for SEO?

The best estimates I've seen is that high-value rich snippets drive 10% to 30% more traffic from search engines due to increased click through rate (CTR). Most pages don't have an appropriate high-value rich snippet to implement. Google has a pretty small list of rich snippets that it will show. The best rich snippets are for pages about things like: ...

No. Serving up content only for the benefit of search engines is a major violation of their terms of services and will result in penalties for your site up to and including banning. You should refactor your HTML to be compatible with the rich snippets so you can take advantage of them without doing the exact opposite of what you're hoping to accomplish.

Up-to-date answer, January 3rd, 2017 data-vocabulary.org - offers microdata for breadcrumbs for quite some time now. Simply use it like this: <div class="breadcrumb"> <span itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb"> <a href="http://www.contoso.com/" itemprop="url"> <span itemprop="title">Contoso&...

With this implementation: <div itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb"> <a href="http://www.example.com/dresses" itemprop="url"> <span itemprop="title">Dresses</span> </a> &gt; </div> <div itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb"> <a href="http://www....

This issue is rather common and found in mostly poorly edited or made WordPress themes. entry-title, updated and author are all related to the Hatom markup which requires hentry to included above the fold and ideally in the body. It's likely that your website is missing author, updated and entry-title leaving hentry still within your code. View source and ...

Google’s documentation of their Rich Snippet Aggregate Review still uses the Data-vocabulary.org vocabulary, but I think it’s safe to assume that this also applies to the Schema.org vocabulary. There it says about count (which would probably be reviewCount in Schema.org): Note: Whenever you include count, the page must also contain review markup for each ...
