Schema and Snippets
In short, Google Structured Data (JSON-LD) is a standardized format that helps structure information about a page and makes it machine-readable data. In other words, it classifies the page content in a unified way for search engines like Google to understand. This helps to create a more organized and better web overall enhancing the page ranking. For example, on a recipe page, the JSON-LD format helps Google understand what are the ingredients, the cooking time and temperature, the calories, and so on.

JSON-LD is an important element that helps structure the data on your site. This will help Search Engines to disambiguate elements and establish facts surrounding entities, which is then associated with creating a more organized, better web overall. JSON-LD has been added to the
<head>section of the HTML document so that the Google search engines can read them. Google and some other search engine use this as a factor to rank in their search results.
How to check if my pages support rich results?
Once JSON-LD has been added, you can always go to this Testing tool from Google to check if JSON-LD is really integrated into each page or product of your store. Just paste the URL you want to check onto the box and click to see the result.
For more specific information, you can directly check it on your page code. Please go to a page you want to check ->Right click -> View page source -> Ctrl + F -> Search for "json", you will see the added code like this.
It is noted here that the code of the FAQ schema will be applied to the specific page that you choose and fill in on the app. Therefore, if you want to check the FAQ schema code, please go to that page -> Right-click -> View page source -> Ctrl + F -> Search for "faq", you will see the added code like this.
Basically, JSON-LD does not change anything about your storefront but just helps a lot for SEO. Please refer to the post for more details: https://sitechecker.pro/json-ld-markup/
Will all information I filled in on the app will be shown on Google?
Yes, when Google crawls your web page, it will crawl all the information you set up. If your store already had JSON-LD before, or there is more than one JSON-LD version on the site, Google will choose a more complete version to display, so you don't have to worry about conflicting issues. It's the reason why it's highly recommended to add our JSON-LD because it's the most complete and newly-updated version.
How long will it take for Rich Snippets to show in search engine results?
Normally, it takes about 4 - 8 weeks for Google to show up your rich snippets on search result pages, sometimes up to 11 weeks. There is no exact time frame in that case.
There are warnings because you are missing some fields (for example, here Review field is lacking) so you will be recommended to add it. Read more details here: https://rich-snippets.io/errors-and-warnings-on-googles-structured-data-test-tool/
