How to add Structured Data to JoomShopping

Updated 13 Dec, 2019

Google Structured Data integrates with JoomShopping in a completely automatic way and constructs the product snippet for all of your JoomShopping products! However, you need to make sure that this functionality is enabled within the integration's settings. Let's see how to do that now.

Enable Integration

As with all of the integrations, you need to navigate to Components > Google Structured Data > Configuration and click the Integrations Tab where all the Integrations are listed.


Find the "JoomShopping" Integration in the list and make sure that it is enabled with the green checkmark indicator as shown in the screenshot below.

Add Product Structured Data to JoomShopping Pages

Let's see how you can add the Product Content Type to JoomShopping Pages. From the Components menu, choose Google Structured Data, nagivate to the Items section and click on the New button to create a new Structured Data Item.

On the next page, you will see the following 3 options where you will need to select Product Content Type and the JoomShopping Integration as shown in the screenshot below.

Click Save to return to the same page. Once the item is saved 2 new sections appearing.

  • Product: This section helps you map the content type properties with Page options, Meta Properties, Site info and more.
  • Publishing Rules: This is where you can select the pages where the structured data is going to be generated to.

To learn more details on how you can use these sections visit the How to Add Structured Data to Pages documentation page.

Publishing Rules

In case, you don't want to generate the Product Content Type to all pages, you can use the available publishing rules to target specific pages. The JoomShopping Integration implements the following publishing rules:

Product Target specific JoomShopping Products only.
Category Target all JoomShopping products assigned to specific categories. This rule affects newly created items as well.

To learn more about the Publishing Rules section visit the How to add Structured Data to Pages documentation page.

Remember, in case you don't enable any publishing rules, the structured data will be generated on all JoomShopping Pages.


The Structured Data is generated only in the Product View of the JoomShopping component where a single Product is displayed. The Category or List views are not currently supported.
