Google Introduces New Rich Results Testing Tool

This article was updated on August 6th, 2020 at 05:57 am

Google today introduced a new tool into its arsenal of Google Search Console – Rich results testing tool.

Ever since Google introduced rich snippets in 2009, it’s been growing in popularity, and Google’s only tool available to test rich snippets was this one.

But now, Google has introduced the rich results testing tool, which will help webmasters test out rich snippets on their pages.

The new testing tool focuses on the structured data types that are eligible to be shown as rich results. It allows you to test all data sources on your pages, such as JSON-LD (which we recommend), Microdata, or RDFa. The new tool provides a more accurate reflection of the page’s appearance on Search and includes improved handling for Structured Data found on dynamically loaded content. The tests for Recipes, Jobs, Movies, and Courses are currently supported.

If you haven’t started marking up your content, here’s where you can get started.
