Google recently changed their review requirements which has caused a spate of new warnings to be sent out via the Google Search Console. Whilst nothing to do with the 100 character limit change, Google has become more strict on the author type specified in the structured data, no longer accepting “Thing” but requiring either “Person” or “Organization”.

For BigCommerce stores receiving this error, simply install the SEO Rich Snippets App, choose the review system you are using for your store and click publish within the app – problem solved!
