search console: Invalid value "availability"

  • Hello,

    I have rich snippets enabled in Rang Math. When testing the the markup in the Google markup testing tools there seems to be no problem just 3 minor warnings.

    however I get the following warnings in Google search console:

    * Invalid value type for field “availability”
    ** Missing field “priceValidUntil”
    ** Missing field “brand”
    * Missing field “aggregateRating”
    * Missing field “review”
    * Missing field “priceCurrency”
    * Invalid price format in property “price”
    * Missing field “url”
    ** Missing field “sku”

    Not all products affected with all warnings.

    * = field exists in markup but can not be validated by google search console (however the markup testing tool has no problems to validate it and shows no warnings

    ** = field not existing in Markup, maybe a good idea to add it ?

    is there anything I can do about it? any idea what is causing it?

    thanks

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Please look at your Product settings in WooCommerce. You need to set up all these settings there so Rank Math can make them schema-ready.

    * Invalid value type for field “availability”: You need to setup availability in WooCommerce product.
    ** Missing field “priceValidUntil”: You need to setup a Sale price and then have an expiry on that sale price.
    ** Missing field “brand”: Follow this post: https://support.rankmath.com/ticket/product-brand-is-not-recognized-as-a-brand/#post-2128
    * Missing field “aggregateRating”: Your product will need reviews and ratings from your visitors via WooCommerce.
    * Missing field “review”: Same as above.
    * Missing field “priceCurrency”: You need to set this up in WooCommerce settings:
    * Invalid price format in property “price”: Fixing the currency will fix this.
    * Missing field “url”: Can you share a screenshot for this? Is this for the image only? If so, upload a featured image or a product image to have this fixed.
    ** Missing field “sku”: Setup the SKU in WooCommerce product settings: http://i.mythemeshop.com/VIv336

    Sounds to me this is a brand new store and you haven’t gone through the WooCommerce setup wizard yet. Please go through it and let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

    Thank you.

    Todd, thank you very much for the prompt reply, I appreciate it very much.

    Shop is up and running for about 2 months.

    These fields are configured (hopefully correctly…)
    availability
    priceCurrency
    price
    url

    The rest of the fields are not all well configured, I will work on this as to your recommendations.

    However the strange thing is that the Google Structured data testing tool shows no warning- and the preview of the “product” markup segment shows correctly.

    So the structured data testing tool can read correctly the above fields, only google search console shows these Errors. Re- Validation keeps failing.

    I am worried that because of the “availability” “price”” fields I will be demoted in search results because google will think my products are less relevant.

    for your ref my web shop is at http://www.buy-bio.eu

    thanks for your help

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    I have just tested several of your products on the structured data testing tool and it looks like you have not yet set these values in WooCommerce which could be triggering the errors on the search console https://snag.gy/twvCoj.jpg

    Please ensure that all your products have all these values set up to fix the validation errors. Allow me to point out that Google will not penalize you for these warnings and this will also not affect your ranking. Having these values will however increase your click through rates and improve the traffic to your site.

    I hope this info helps.
