Google this week announced it has added more context to its error reporting in Search Console, starting yesterday.
Google says publishers and advertisers can identify structured data issues more effectively. For example, if a website doesn’t provide the name of the author in Review snippet markup, Search Console currently reports an error named Missing field “name”. Now, that error will be named Missing field “name” (in “author”).
Google clarified it won’t send email notifications on the creation of these new issues, to avoid overloading Search Console users with emails.
According to Google, the update has impact on Search Console rich result status reports, the Search Console URL inspection tool and Rich Results Test.
