  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting the support and we regret the inconvenience caused.

    Please click on the errors section in the coverage report of your Google Search Console account where 3 errors are listed and let us know what are those errors.

    Also, please verify if the product URLs that are no longer in the Valid/Valid with warning section, are the affected URLs in the errors.

    Looking forward to hearing back from you.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    There are only 3 products with errors. We don’t actually have a problem with these mistakes (Pictures 1 and 2).

    Our main problem is that there is a huge decrease in the number of valid products (Picture 3).

    Additionally, there is also a huge decrease in the number of breadcrumbs and site links.

    Hello,

    I checked one of the affected URLs with the Rich Snippet tool, there is an aggregateRating error.

    Rank Math takes the schema data from your product pages automatically and turns it into Schema-ready content. Likewise, the aggregateRating and review fields are taken from your actual product reviews that your buyers/customers leave on your products.

    If you don’t have any reviews yet, that is going to show up as a warning in the schema testing tool. That’s because Google will actually look for those fields.

    Please acquire some reviews and ratings to get rid of the aggregateRating and review warnings.

    For the Valid with warnings products, can you please share some of the affected URLs so we can advise accordingly?

    For the breadcrumbs, if you are seeing a drop in valid breadcrumbs and no rise in invalid pages then there is nothing to be worried about.

    It is because the sample used for testing becoming smaller for the website.

    Check this article for more information:

    For the sitelinks, please note that Rank Math adds the Sitelinks search box only to the homepage as it only needs to be present on the homepage as per Google’s guidelines which is why you are seeing a drop in sitelinks in GSC:
    https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/sitelinks-searchbox#guidelines

    The Sitelinks SearchBox Schema will drop further until you see just one valid page.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    First of all thank you for all your help. However our main concern is decrease in the number of products shown. As you can see there is 101 valid with error products left out of 800 products. And also there is no increase in the number of valid products. The products can be valid with error we dont have products reviews etc. It ls not a problem for us, but we need to prevent the decrease in number and also increase the number.

    I am sending you the product examples.

    Attachment 1 : A product which is shown in valid with error. (This is the one which we want.)
    Attachment 2: The product which is not existing anymore in products section

    Attachment 1: https://sutore.com/product/adidas-yeezy-boost-350-v2-zebra/

    Hello,

    As mentioned by John Mueller of Google (present in the guide shared by my colleague), seeing a drop valid and not a rise in invalid, is fine. This is specific to the Search Console structured data enhancement report sections and not related to issues with the actual product.

    Using the URL Inspection Tool of Google Search Console, please test a few URLs that are no longer in the Valid/Valid with warning section and see if any issues are detected.

    The first URL you shared is already indexed. As for the second URL you shared, it is already set to Index. If it was previously indexed, please test it with the above tool and see if there’s anything preventing the reindexing.

    Let us know how that goes.

    When I used the URL Inspection tool the result I get is same for the valid with error and not shown products. However, when I search on the google the result I get is as shown in the pictures I sent. I can get result for the products which are valid with error, but google shows the main page for other products.

    Hello,

    The second URL that you had shared, has also been indexed in the SERPs:

    If you check the same product with the Rich Results Test, it has the Product Schema and it is valid with warnings:

    It means that Google is crawling and indexing your products. You just need to wait for them to crawl all of your products and index them. You can check if the products are indexed or not by using the site:product-url in Google Search.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need any other assistance.

    Thanks.
