Trying to get some help troubleshooting a knowledge graph / JSON-LD issue with a client site that includes multiple complexities, including: DOM injection of the JSON-LD code, injection within <body> tags and the page itself not being the "homepage" due to current redirect configurations.

Details in the original tweet, if you can view it.

99.9% sure this is invalid and Google can't see it. Trying to get a few more opinions on it to push client to fix. Thanks in advance if you can help.

Google stepping into the PLA/Shopping bidding war with their own ads featuring items from Costco, Walmart, Target.

Ordered something on Black Friday thru Costco and order was canceled late Sunday. Not a great 1st experience... ended up ordering from Amazon instead.

Trying to determine why Google would be showing an Open Directory Title & Meta Description sometimes, when the rendered page content has a NOODP tag in it.

To consider:
-Site built w/ AngularJS (tags, body content, etc.)
-The Render of the page looks fine and is fully rendered.
-The Fetch of the page (shown below) indicates that the DOM isn't loaded & the Titles, Meta Tags & other page content aren't there.
-Doubt it is related to the SERP visibility, but the Fetch also appears to be crapping out mid-JavaScript about 140 lines into the source code & doesn't show the whole page source.

Any reason to be concerned (for Google only) or is the complete render a validation that Google is seeing our pages correctly. The SERP varies by day, location, etc. and I would say "mostly" shows the DOM-enabled Title and Meta Desc.

I'm coming to one of two possibilities:
1) Google is testing the ODP snippet vs. the actual snippet for CTR, etc.
2) Google is not consistently seeing the rendered page content & tags

Thoughts?

Why moving to online only is challenging for retailers.

"...the greater issue at hand that will continue to challenge retailers, both from an e-commerce and in-store perspective, is the inability to evolve the customer’s experience."
