Google Structured Data

19 May

Freewebstore has added Google’s Structured Data markup to your products.

What is Structured Data and how does it benefit my store ?

“Structured data markup” is a standard way to annotate your content so machines can understand it. When your web pages include structured data markup, Google (and other search engines) can use that data to index your content better, present it more prominently in search results, and boost your ranking.

Can I test what structured Data is collected  ?

You can use the handy tool Google provide to test the data that is collected.

1.  Go to https://developers.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/
