Web Components are crawled for schema.org metadata

A few weeks ago I did a test to see if schema.org data is pulled from web components in the shadow dom. I am happy to report my negative findings were wrong.

Google is pulling schema.org out of web components

I had placed the JSON-LD package down in the table as an expedient (ie.. lazy). Someone here caught that (sorry I don't have a credit) and it registered with me as an error. While doing some updates I changed it but didn't go back to Google Search Console to check it.

I did today and it is there.. so using web components and place semantic metadata in those does work, at least for Google. If others are rendering the component shadow dom's I do not know (yet).

Appreciate this community for its help and conversation on this topic. I'm happy I can move forward with some web component and semantic projects now!

I've been using Chrome with CodeBender for most of my Arduino hacks -- works great! If you're getting started on Arduino, it's neat to be able to keep things simple, and to be able to move between devices freely (Chromebook, Macbook, or others? up to you!).

Google: "Today we're announcing an experiment in Chrome where a small fraction of connections between desktop Chrome and Google's servers will use a post-quantum key-exchange algorithm in addition to the elliptic-curve key-exchange algorithm that would typically be used."

Rest of the world: "It's still kind of okay to have Win XP deployed, though, right? And I mean, it's the internal network, so we can do without SSL for just a little while longer."

An earlier Google Webmaster Central office-hours hanout is lined up for tomorrow. If the time works for your timezone, drop in & say hi! If it's way too early to think about SEO, feel free to add your questions to the Q&A beforehand :-).

"Weird-Looking Freak Saves Apollo 14" - lots of fun stuff to read about and from Don Eyles, one of the programmers on the Apollo program. Was this an early form of Ballmer Peak? "I've written computer programs while I was stoned which have turned out to be pretty good programs."

The giant book (with the matching suitcase) in the video is a printout of the Lunar Module source code.

+John Mueller I do have vague, horrible, memories of assembler on the ZX80/1 and the BBC Micro, but I thought something like a missing semicolon might resonate with a larger audience today... :)
