The feed has this information. Is the problem with the landing page?

Hey Frank,

This is just a suggestion from Google and not required. Valid schema.org microdata allows Google to read your landing page which enables automatic item updates. This reduces the risk of account suspension for price and availability mismatches and prevents temporary item disapproval.

Hello Jim,

So can I just disregard these messages?
Do I get these messages only because I have auto feed setup?
What would happen if I paused the auto feed option and uploaded manually instead?

Thanks for your reply.

Frank

It is recommended to fulfill all requirements both warnings, errors and suggestions as this improves the quality of your data feed. A higher quality data feed sends positive signals to improved ranking.

So I do not recommend to simply ignore it.

Depending on your eCommerce platform there are easy ways to implements microdata. Simply Google adding google shopping microdata to find a bunch of articles that explain how to do it.

You can also ask your web developer if you have one to add the requirements which are available on schema.org

Hope it helps.
