Latest Update: Google has rolled back all unresolvable errors – All Warnings/Errors are now resolvable by the SEO Rich Snippets app

Google has released an update allowing for the addition of product structured data to power the free shopping listings in Google search results. There has been some significant changes to their product structured data requirements. You can now specify things like color, material, size and pattern which we have now updated our SEO Rich Snippets app to support – more info in our article “Merchant Listing Attibutes“.

There are some issues with this new feature however, an issue with their validator is causing errors in the new Search Console report if their structured data supports the more advanced priceSpecification data (Which our SEO Rich Snippets app does).

Google is releasing a fix for this. In the meantime, ignore this error in the new Merchant listings report:
Missing field “priceType” (in “offers.priceSpecification”)

We’re also in discussions with Google as there are compatibility issues with other channels like Facebook, Pinterest and Bing.

Here are the current GSC errors and warnings our clients have seen due to this change and that we are working towards eliminating – if you have others, please get in touch.
