Preview Google’s New Structured Data Dashboard Beta

google-webmaster-tools-video-1330350240A couple weeks ago, we reported Google opened up invite requests to join a beta of the structure data dashboard.

I signed up immediately and yesterday, I, along with other webmasters, received my welcome email to take a look at the report.

To sign up, you can do so at over here – I am not sure if they are still welcoming beta testers. That being said, if you did sign up, you can see if you have access to the new Webmaster Tools structured data error reports by going to the “Optimization” section and checking within the “Structured Data” section.

Personally, my report shows no errors, but as I noted, +Tony McCreath did have some errors reported that he found very helpful in detecting errors he “probably never have found without it.”

    Maybe I’m missing something, but on that graph how are there more items with errors than items found?

    Regardless, this should be a really useful feature, especially on large ecommerce websites and blogs.

    So I can possibly ball park when I’ll be accepted (good luck), when did you sign up for the beta? I’m still in beta limbo…
