A new version of the JSON-LD for SEO app code has been developed to take advantage of new features Shopify has included as part of Online Store 2.0.

The best part is that you don’t even need an Online Store 2.0 theme to take advantage of them.

The update is compatible with all Shopify themes, even non-Theme Store 2.0 themes.

Here’s the quick process of installing JSON-LD for SEO:

Step 1: Enable the app in your theme

  1. From the app, click the Theme Settings button
  2. Make sure the setting for JSON-LD for SEO in the App Embed Block in enabled.
  3. Select Save

Remember to select Save at the end. This part has been catching a few folks during the setup process.

From the theme settings, toggle the JSON-LD for SEO app to on and select the save button on the top right.

Publishing a new theme

For stores using the new App Embed for JSON-LD for SEO (as of January 2022), you’ll need to enable the Structured Data JSON-LD for SEO App Embed in the Theme Settings each time you update your theme. Follow the instructions above and make sure you select Save after enabling the app.

For legacy JSON-LD for SEO users, we ask that you migrate to the new Online Store 2.0 App Embed. Migrating is optional at this time, but the old snippet will no longer receive updates or new features. If you don’t migrate now, you don’t have to do anything when you switch themes. JSON-LD for SEO will automatically detect the change and re-run its snippet installer.

Step 2: Make changes to default settings

Though not required, if you’d like to tweak a few of the app settings to use something other than the default options, now is a good time.

JSON-LD for SEO optional settings for Product Reviews, Local Business, and other Optional Settings at the store and product level.

An important one is selecting which Product Reviews app you use. Some review apps leave old review data lying around so by selecting the one you use, JSON-LD for SEO will know which data is the correct one.
