Google Search Console Shopping Missing Fields

Good day! When I uploaded my products on Google Shopping, it went well, and the results were good. My SEO is good and when I searched my website and website products it shows the reviews and price on Google Search and Images, also, it shows an Icon of Product in Google Images. 

Meanwhile, I planned to modify some products SEO and Product Tags. After that, my store visits and performances dropped. When I search my products, it has no tag icon and price, also reviews are not visible in both Google Search and Google Images also in Shopping, and it's been two weeks it's like this. I visited my Google Search Console (GSC) and in Shopping Tab, I found in "Product Snippets" and "Merchant Listing" the error.

The error from Product Snippets are:

and the error from Merchant Listings are:

sereneluminaire_1-1714920106451.png

 

I am positive that the reason of my Product is not showing its Product Tag Icon, Product Reviews, Price, and Product Page is that because of this.

I am validating the issues but it shows like this:

I visited this pages and after that, there are no problems, it works pretty well.

Please help me, I really need serious help on this. My store performance dropped so much.

For the missing merchant return policy and shipping details, it's optional only. And I only recommend adding this if you have not added it in Google Merchant Center. If you have added it in Google Merchant Center, there is no need to add it again.

 

For the reviews, make sure that either your review platform submits the structured data or that you add the review schema yourself.

 

You can us the below code I developed:

Hey @sereneluminaire,

 

These particular issues in Search Console likely won't have a significant impact in your traffic. This article may help you diagnose what caused the change in your results. 

 

What you see aren't errors, they are non-critical issues about optional data. If you look at the orange text you'll see that Google says they are valid but if you add these fields, you may get more features in search results. It's Google's way of asking if you have the data, please include it. If not, that's ok too.

 

AggregateRating and Reviews: If the product doesn't have reviews on the page, it's expected to see the missing aggregateRating.

 

That review field is an optional field that doesn't apply to Shopify products. It's for editorial or critic reviews where someone writes a review article about a business, book, or movie. Think of a blogger reviewing a product that was sent to them, not customers leaving reviews for the products they paid for. It's not something you'd have on your own products.

I have a short video explaining the difference between review and aggregateRating and why you don't use the review field if you're interested.

 

Shipping & Returns: Though you can add the shipping and returns information in the structured data, Google recommends updating it in Merchant Center as it's easier to manage. It won't make the non-critical issue go away, but you can ignore it.

  1. You can configure the delivery information in Merchant Center using this doc or there is a setting in the Google Sales channel to automatically pull it from Shopify.
  2. You can configure the returns information in Merchant Center using this doc.

 

PriceValidUntil: Recommended to show when the price will no longer be available. This isn't something you can set in Shopify so most structured data apps like JSON-LD for SEO, set a date in the future.

 

Name length: There's no hard and fast rule so I don't like that Google is reporting on this, but you could reduce the size of the product names that are impacted. The longer the name, the harder it is for Google to use your product name in search results and shopping listings. Shopify allows you to use up to 255 characters, but I've found between 50-70 characters is closer to the goal.

 

Hope that helps and if you have any other questions, let me know.
