Google Webmaster Tools Upgrades Structure Data Markup Errors Report

Google-Webmaster-toolsGoogle’s Webmaster Trends Analyst Mariya Moeva announced, on the Google Webmaster blog, a new update to Google Webmaster Tools where they now show items with errors in the Structured Data dashboard.

This can help webmasters better debug issues they are having with their structured data markup.

Google is showing the item-level error, but the top-level structured data element, not the deeper, nested items that are tagged in the HTML code.

Here is the errors overview report:

sdd-errors

When you click on one, it shows you the errors over time with a graph. Google added a note that their “data pipelines have also been updated for more comprehensive reporting, so you may initially see fewer data points in the chronological graph.”

sdd-error-bars

You can even click on URLs in the table to see details about what markup was detected during the crawl:

sdd-page-details

To learn more about these changes and to read how you can use it to debug your structure data on your site, see the Google Webmaster Blog.

    That’s a nice feature, but I wish they’d get the reports out faster.

    The only way to get truly reliable results on your backlink profile, concerning toxic links is to get a link audit. I went to the Link Auditors to get my audit. When I told them my problem, they took me through each of their tools and advised me which ones would work best for me. They also have a link removal tool, that like their others tools, works brilliantly! It is easy to use, quick and fully automatic. Why waste time manually going through your links to find the toxic ones then trying to find a removal tool that actually works, head straight to http://linkaudit.co.uk/ where it’s all there waiting for you.

    I found a video of theirs which will help you realise that what they offer is the best! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDrp3NhvUv4
