Google’s Rich Results Test to Take Priority Over Structured Data Testing Tool

Google’s Rich Results Test to Take Priority Over Structured Data Testing Tool

Google recently announced that its Rich Results Test is out of beta and now fully supports all of its rich results features.

Powered by structured data, rich results are the dynamic snippets you see at the top of Google's search results, whether it's a carousel, image, or listicle.

An example or Google's rich results for recipes.

The Rich Results Test determines if your website's structured data is set up correctly so that your page can be eligible for rich results. With this latest update, Google will be deprecating its Structured Data Testing Tool. Here are some reasons from Google about why the prioritization of their Rich Results Test is an upgrade:

  • It shows which Search feature enhancements are valid for the markup you are providing.
  • It handles dynamically loaded structured data markup more effectively.
  • It renders both mobile and desktop versions of a result.
  • It is fully aligned with Search Console reports.

With the Rich Results Test, you can use a URL or a snippet of code to see if there are any errors within your structured data. For example, if your web page is missing an image, it could still be eligible for rich results, but would display without an image. Here's an example of what these warnings look like in the Rich Results Test:

And here's an example of what the test results will look like if your site has structured data marked up correctly:

The Rich Results Test also allows you to preview what your page will look like as a rich result on search:
