Google Data Highlighter Tool – Brilliant Idea

I’ve been trying to implement some structured schema data on our e-commerce site for the last year, but it’s turning out to be a much bigger pain in the ‘you-know-what’ than I’d anticipated. I’m sure many of you can relate, which is probably why we’re not seeing the search results pages with an option to ‘sort by top reviewed’ just yet.

Things may be about to change though, as Google has just recently released their new ‘Data Highlighter’ tool. You can find it in the webmaster tools section, under Optimization.

  1. As long as you have registered your site with google webmaster tools in blogger, which you should have, I see no reason why you wouldn’t be able to.

    I’m not running any sites on there at the moment though, so I can’t say for sure. I say give it a shot, and then let us know the results.
