Google has posted a new developer help document guiding SEOs and webmasters on how to use structured data with JavaScript. This goes through using Google Tag Manager to generate JSON-LD dynamically and using structured data with custom JavaScript.

The document explains that modern websites use JavaScript to create websites with lots of dynamic content. There are a few things you need to look out for when using JavaScript to generate structured data on your websites, and this guide covers best practices and implementation strategies. If youโ€™re new to structured data, you can learn more about how structured data works.

There are different ways to generate structured data with JavaScript, but the most common are:

  • Google Tag Manager
  • Custom JavaScript

This document has some very nice guidance that I know some in the SEO community wanted clarity on.
