Google Webmaster ToolsGoogle is now inviting webmasters to try out the new Webmaster Tools structured data error reports.

I signed up for the beta a few weeks ago and was invited yesterday to check out the reports. Fortunately for me, but unfortunately for you, I have no errors - so there is not much to show you.

However, I did spot Tony McCreath post screen shots with errors on Google+ for all to see.

Here is the screen shot showing the more detailed errors coming to your structured data report within Google Webmaster Tools:

Tony said that this report has been helpful to him, he said so far "it's highlighted a couple of issues that I would probably never have found without it." "So very happy," he added.

Out of 732 items, 583 were found with errors, but all with same error type? Is this some error with the tool or was it really same error in each item of Tony's website?

They are all the same error in this case and after some investigation I don't think it is a real error. I think it relates to an optional property so it can be missing, and it is not stopping the rich snippets show. I've sent them some direct feedback.

Looks like Star rating ( If it this WP then GD star ) Icon or CSS missing! Xenu broken link finder is good for such issues.

It is star ratings. I believe the error reported relates to properties in http://schema.org/AggregateRating which I use to indicate review ratings for products. If they are not present the spec says a rating system from 1 to 5 will be used, so their lack of presence should not cause an error. I may just add them to clean up the report.

Just realised that it is not clear that I am the guy who posted the image.
