JSON-LD is a lightweight 'Linked Data' format. It is a way encode your website data to be easier to understand for all of the other machines on the Internet - including search engines like Google!
Google looks for JSON-LD, and rewards websites and webshops that serve JSON-LD data. Many of Google’s search results page features (including rich snippets and Knowledge Graph cards) are enabled by JSON-LD mark-up. Their 'Shopping' search results tab is also powered by JSON-LD. Making sure that your site serves this type of data can be very helpful in your search engine rankings!
Currently we support specialized JSON-LD data on the following pages:
Many templates include metadata as part of their tag structure. For example you may see something like this: itemtype="http://schema.org/Product" in your HTML. The tool will pick up this data as well as the JSON-LD data that we inject into your shop.
As we are already using this application in all our stores as part of a larger, comprehensive SEO package for Shopify, it was not difficult to split it out and make it available for free to all Shopify users. If you are interested in being notified upon the release of our more comprehensive SEO app for Shopify, please contact us through our support email.
We hope not! If you are having problems with your set-up or ideas for improvement, please contact us through our support email.
