I added rich snippets (schema.org formats) to my site about 4 months ago, and verified it worked with the structured data testing tool. It didn't show up in the results, so I figured it would take some time.
Well, 4 months later, still no SERPs had the snippets.
So I tried the new data highlighter, and set it up the same way I did with the rich snippets. It's been a few weeks (since 6/2), and that's not showing anything either.
the data highlighter is showing as published...
Any idea what I might be doing wrong? Do I need to just be patient?
I used the below schema format for 3 product pages (antiques so in Used category with no previews). Showed up within a week or so. I could see the "price" and "In stock" had been added which is the quickest way for me to tell that it worked. It did not place those products any better in Search but maybe eventually.....
When researching this I kept finding conversations and examples where more than one format was being used and I don't know if that's ok so I just stuck with Schema format.
I'm not positive I have the top Schema code "WebPage" in the right location. I think there were some examples where it was placed above the </head> section but this is where I placed mine.
In my CONTENT section of my page. <div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/WebPage"> <span id="breadcrumbs" itemprop="breadcrumb"> <a href="http://www.example.com/">Home </a>> <a href="category.html">Category </a>> Product Name</div><br />
