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), improving traffic, driving sales, and enhancing your product listings in search results.
The best thing about having JSON-LD for your store is that it works great even if you have a lower ranking than your competitors.
Since your product listings will stand out, this can convince a potential customer to click on your product page instead of your competitors.
Overtime, Google will notice that your store is getting more clicks than other stores.
They can then choose to boost your overall search engine ranking which increases your SEO.

By enhancing your product pages, you’re search result listings will be more clickable because they’ll stand out.
Having rich snippets will naturally improve your overall traffic by encouraging people to click on your store.
3. Drives sales
Generate sales by getting more eyeballs on your product pages.
Having JSON-LD code written into each and every product page, you can rest assured that Google will 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.
If they were interested in buying a t-shirt and they can see that it is highly rated, available in their size, and the price is right, they might be ready to buy that shirt as soon as they click on it.
How do I install it?
Just click the “Get” button at the top of the app page. The app will automatically create the JSON-ld code for your entire shop.
This is a completely hands-off app that works entirely in the background.
How do I verify that it’s working?
On our dashboard, you can click on ‘Verify’ which will show you a mirror image of what your site looks like before and after (with a short explanation of how it all works).
How long does it take for rich snippets to appear?

Google decides when to crawl your site (unfortunately, I do not have any control over when they choose to do this).
Once Google crawls your site, it will try it’s best to gather extra information from the JSON-ld markup that we created for your site.
Google can then go ahead and create rich snippets which can 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 guidelines and best practices set forth by Schema.org to ensure that the markup code is up-to-date with the requirements of Google and all other search engines.
What is JSON-LD?
JSON-LD is the markup that we are working with that helps the search engines know exactly what they are looking for.
JSON-LD is the technical terminology for the industry standard markup (code) set forth by schema.org.
What is structured data?
Google defines structured data as “the standardized format for providing information about a page and classifying the page content.”
This is useful for gathering extra information about a product page or services.
It will categorize 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 can enable google to display an enhanced product listing which could show availability, reviews, colors to choose from and so on.
Can I just get the code & then leave your app?
