Google Webmaster Tools Adds Structured Data Dashboard
Google’s Webmaster Tools Data Dashboard
Structured data is a big part of Google’s search results and discovery process and to make it easier and quicker for webmasters to find out what structured data Google has indexed from your website, Google has introduced a new tool under the “Optimization” section of Google Webmaster Tools named “Structured Data”
This will show you all the rich snippets markup and other structured data markups Google has discovered for your site. Google breaks down the dashboard reporting by 3 levels including site level, itemtype level and page level.
- On the site level Google aggregates data by root item type and vocabulary schema. Root item type means an item that is not an attribute of another on the same page.
- On the itemtype level Google provides per-page details for each item type. Google will also provide specialized preview columns to show more item markup.
- On the page level Google shows all attributes of every item type on the given page. Google also shows a link to the Rich Snippet testing tool for that specific page.
These are great tools to help a webmaster to work on the content that Google indexes from your website and help with your targeted SEO results.
