Troubleshoot using the Data Feed validation tool

We recommend the following troubleshooting steps for resolving common errors and warnings on the Data Feed validation tool:

  • Make sure that you have the correct option selected in the Validate on field. Select Watch Action for the Watch Action entities and Listen Action for the Listen Action entities. Do not combine the Watch Action and Listen Action entities in the same feed.

  • When you see Uncategorized Errors, expand the error panel to view the details of the error.

  • When you see the error message The type https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/{$type} is not a type known to Google, do the following:

    • Verify that the value of @type is spelled correctly.
    • Make sure that the value of @context is set properly. Set "@context": "http://schema.org" for Watch Action and "@context": "http://schema.googleapis.com" for Listen Action.
