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 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, you are required to migrate to the latest version of the app. The old snippet is no longer receiving updates or new features.

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.
