I dynamically add structured data to pages due to limitations of the CMS I work on.
Over the past month or so I've noticed the structured data report switching between reporting the rendered results and the none rendered results.
It's like some of the bots crawling the site are not rendering the content.
I'm trying to work out if there is another way to reliably test if Google is not rendering when it crawls.
The Structured Data testing Tool says it is for microdata, but not for json-ld.
I did a test to confirm that in the SDTT. Interestingly it does not resolve the URL for a content attribute, but it also does not show an error. So still not quite doing the right thing in my opinion.
I'm not actually saying we should use relative URLs. I just found it interesting that they can work, and now I know that in some cases W3C says they are valid.
Many people will be marking up existing links and images which use relative URLs. I think the support for that is a must. When we add stand alone structured data it makes sense to be very specific and use absolute URLs. Hence why I saw the mixed error response.
It's backdated to their last official Update on the 27th April.
From what I can tell, it includes times when rich snippets are included in the displayed result. e.g. product priced, reviews, recipe data etc..
A good report is to filter by rich results then display pages. Then you can see which pages are worthy of rich snippets.
