How to handle new structured data errors and how to fix them
Google has just made an update to its requirements for structured data as of September 2019. Actually, Google makes a lot of changes to their structured data requirements every couple months, and our app Get Clicked SEO updates our code to stay on top of it!
If you are monitoring your Google Search Console account, you might see you have 600 errors all of a sudden because of this new BreadcrumbList error. That's because this error most likely appears on every page of your website.
In summary, Get Clicked SEO provides correct structured data that helps your website be eligible for rich snippets through Google.
Get Clicked SEO does not cause this BreadcrumbList error.
