How does it work?
Our app instantly inject structured data into your entire Shopify store which makes you eligible for “rich snippets.”
Rich snippets are enhanced search results that improve the way your products appear in search results.
You’ll need to wait for Google to crawl & index your website. It depends on Google when they want to visit your website, but typically it takes a minimum of at least 3-12 weeks. It could also take up to 6 months (in very rare cases).
After visiting your website, Google will then decide whether or not to award your site with rich snippets for your products and company.
Our app also has other features you can utilize to help improve your overall SEO. These include a scanning tool to find missing alt text, the ability to edit your page title and meta description, and a page speed/mobile friendliness test to name a few.

How does Get Clicked! SEO benefit my shop?
#1 Improves SEO
Structured data is one of the most effective ways to increase your presence on the internet.
Structured data (such as JSON-ld) is a great strategy for improving search engine optimization (SEO). It also helps to drive traffic, increase sales, and enhance your product listings in search results.
The best thing about having structured data for your store is it works great even if you have a lower ranking than your competitors.
Since your product listings will stand out, this convinces potential customers to click on your product listing instead of your competitors.
Overtime, Google will notice that your store is getting more clicks than other stores and can choose suggest you more in search results.
#2 Improves Click Through Rate
Structured data enables Google to display rich snippets for your product pages which can drive more traffic to your Shopify store. Here’s how…
By enhancing your product pages, you’re search result listings will be more clickable because they’ll stand out.
Having rich snippets can naturally improve your overall traffic by encouraging people to click on your store.
#3 Improves your appearance on SERP (search engine results page)
By having structured data written into each and every product page, you are enabling Google to create rich snippets for each of your listings.
Displaying extra information allows customers to see more details about the product before they even visit your product page.
Let’s suppose a shopper was interested in buying a purse and you were selling purses on your site. It would be really cool if this shopper could see your purse product as a rich snippet with a lot more information than other search results. They would be able to see that the purse is highly rated (star rating & reviews), available in their size, and has an affordable price.
The neat thing is they might be ready to buy the purse as soon as they click on it. This helps increase your conversions by helping customers decide they want to purchase your products from the search engine results page.
How do I verify that it’s actually working?
On our dashboard, click on “Check your Structured Data” which will take you to our nifty structured data testing tool.
Simply click on ‘Check’ next to a product, collection, or blog and it will take you to Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool.
This tool that was created by Google will detect all of structured data items throughout your store. These are the same structured data items that Google sees when they crawl your site.
How can I track my progress?
We recommend first reading our Tracking Your Progress article which includes a quick video.
This article covers why it’s a great idea to sign up for both Google Search Console & Google Analytics (both are free). This will help you see when your website is being visited by Google and to see if there is an uptick in traffic, Click through Rate, or if you’re ranking for any keywords.
For those of you interested in seeing how your appearance might have changed on search results, we recommend reading, “Has Google Awarded My Site With Rich Snippets?” This guide teaches you how to find all of your rich snippets using something called a sitescope (which is just a quick search on Google).
What are rich snippets?
Rich snippets are attractive descriptions displayed in search results.They can contain extra information such as a star rating, reviews, and product details.
They are more attention grabbing than regular search results because they are bigger in size and more colorful.
Enhanced search results contain a lot more information than ordinary results so they are more attractive to potential customers.
Since they stand out, they tend to get clicked on more often then ordinary search results.
How long does it take for rich snippets to appear in Google Search results?
Rich snippets are awarded by Google and aren’t 100% guaranteed. Unfortunately we don’t have any control over this.
On average, it typically takes a minimum of 3-12 weeks for rich snippets to appear in the Google search results pages (SERP), but it can take as long as six months.
Again Google decides when to crawl your site so unfortunately, we do not have any control over when they choose to do this.
Once Google decides to crawl your site, it will try it’s best to gather extra information from the JSON-ld markup (structured data) that we created for your site.
Google can then go ahead and choose to create rich snippets for your site which will enhance your product listings in search results.
What is Schema.org?
In conjunction with Google, Schema.org sets the standards for how structured data is formatted. This formatting style is called “schema markup.”
We follow the latest guidelines and best practices set forth by Schema.org.
This ensures that the structured data we created for your store is up-to-date with the requirements set fourth by Google and all other search engines.
What is JSON-LD?
JSON-LD is the markup (code language) that helps to categorize all of the data on your store. It is designed for search engines to read it, not humans.
When search engines see this markup code, they will instantly understand exactly what they are looking at.
Search engines use this information to create human-friendly search results that are pleasing to the eye.
What is structured data?
Google defines structured data as “the standardized format for providing information about a page and classifying the page content.”
Structured data is useful for gathering extra information about a product page or services.
It categorizes elements within the data so that it is clearly defined and easier for Google to enhance your product listing in search results.
If you have a site selling t-shirts, the structured data enables Google to display an enhanced product listing which could show availability, reviews, colors to choose from and so on.
Can’t I just get the structured data & then leave your app?
Sorry, but the answer is no.
