I am using the Parallax theme and using the shopify blog. But on a google search, when my posts come up, there is no preview of the blog post image. I would like this to change. Parallax support says it is not part of the theme and they do not support it. How do I make this happen?
Thanks!

Hey Jason!

It could be that Google needs to be sent to your site again to recrawl it, especially if you set up your blog post SEO more recently. 

You can resubmit your site map which will do the trick to get Google to come recrawl faster. Here's the link to our guide on how to do this.

Hope that helps!

It wasnt about that, it has to do with the theme coding, per the theme developer.

Hi Jason,

for google rich snippets (structured data) you need to use mark ups. You can add them directly into your blog post when clicking the < > button. In our blog, we post mostly paleo recipes and use the mark ups for recipes: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/recipes 

Heres an example of one recipe (4th position): https://www.google.de/?gws_rd=ssl#q=paleo+brot Just check our source code and you'll see the mark ups we used to display the image.

Cheers, Marco

Also be aware that it can take some time until google shows the image of your recipes / blog posts.
