Support » Plugin: Perfect Brands for WooCommerce » Error “invalid object type for field brand” since October 1st

  • Since October 1st products throw error in google search console and it says “invalid object type for field brand”.

    Checking the markup the type is “Thing”. Nothing has changed with the website. Has something changed with the markup structure or is it google’s error?

    From Google support forums.

    Hi,

    Guidance has changed here recently, before “brand”: “The Brand” was fine, but the recommendation now is to use a brand type. You are also using the product name as the brand, use the actual brand name, so in your mark-up, change:

    “brand”:”ageLOC Galvanic Body Trio”,

    to

    “brand”: {“@type”: “Brand”, “name”: “Nu Skin”},

    And that should sort that.

    @quadlayers Could you please address this in an update?

    can you please share the link of the page with the issue?
    and screenshot of the tracking code where the brand is described?

    here is a brand in our demo, please highlight the code with the wrong type

    Hi @quadlayers
    You can actually see it on your test website as well. Checking this link in rich test results checker returns, among others, the same error: Invalid object type for field “brand” (optional).

    The markup is “brand”:[“MegaTron”,”Your Store Brand”]. I believe since October 1st it should be “brand”:{“@type”: “Brand”, “name”: “MegaTron”}.
