Hello @Mark_Huggett,

If you have over 13,000 SKUs on your Shopify store but only 160 product snippets are indexed in Google Search Console (GSC), it's possible that there may be issues with how your website is being crawled and indexed by Google.


Below are a few potential reasons why only a small number of product snippets are being indexed.


1. Technical SEO issues
There may be technical issues with your website that are preventing Google from crawling and indexing your product pages. Some common technical SEO issues include broken links, slow page speed, and duplicate content.

2. Duplicate content
If you have many similar products on your website, Google may see them as duplicate content, which can lead to indexing issues. Make sure that each product page has unique content and metadata.

3. Site structure
Your site structure may be preventing Google from crawling and indexing your product pages. Make sure that your site architecture is clear and easy to navigate, with logical categories and subcategories.


To address these issues, you can try the following.


1. Use GSC to identify any crawl errors or other technical SEO issues that may be affecting your website's indexing.

2. Make sure that each product page has unique content and metadata, and that your website's structure is optimized for search engines.

3. Ensure that your website's sitemap is up-to-date and accurately reflects your website's content.

4. Use internal linking to help search engines find and index your product pages.


Hope this helps

Thank you, other than product variants our products are all different.

 

As far as I can see, the structured data is all correct
