Missing microdata for condition

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have three items that are showing up as having the MISSING MICRODATA FOR CONDITION error.  I need to know WHERE and WHAT to add to my html only pages on my website (no CSS used) to remove the errors.  Or do I add the info to my feed?  Interestingly, NONE of my html code has microdata info, not just the 3 items that are showing up.  Everything I sell is new.  Thank you for any help.

google may report only examples or samples of issues --
that may be used to find a root-cause of the issue and fix
all the issues, not just those few items that were reported --
the number of actual issues may far exceed the number reported.

 

also, issues reported within the product-diagnostics-tab are a long-term
historic view, any fixed issues may linger for a week or so, and all reports,

good or bad, are retained for about a month.

 

missing-microdata-for-condition indicates that the structured-data
on the website is missing or does not conform to all google's policies --

the message usually also indicates that the automatic-item-updates,

optional feature, is currently enabled within the merchant-center.

 

the issue has nothing whatever to do with the feed or feed's content.

 

generally, there are two basic choices as to where and what to fix:

 

either (a) within the merchant-center-account, disable the
automatic-item-updates feature, and within the website simply
verify that structured-data does not exist on any landing-pages --
not just for those items reported by google.

 

or (b) within the website, verify that structured-data exists and that all the

structure-data, especially item-condition microdata, conforms to both the

structured-data syntax rules and google shopping-ad rules and policies for

both structured-data and the optional automatic-item-updates feature, on

all landing-pages -- not just for those items reported by google.

 

then, after either (a) or (b) is completed -- resubmit the feed.

 

errors reported within the product-diagnostics-tab may
sometimes linger, for a week or so, after being fixed.

 

otherwise, this is mainly a peer-to-peer forum; forum members cannot
look into any accounts or submitted-data -- posting, here in public,
more specific details, such as specific landing-page urls flagged by
google, screen-captures of the specific messages, etc., may allow
other forum-members to offer more specific suggestions.

 

otherwise, google may be contacted directly for account-specific guidance --

some messages may simply be ignored, depending on account and site details.
