Get your event on Google

The event experience on Google makes it easier for people to discover and attend events through Google Search results and other Google products, like Google Maps. This feature brings many benefits:

  • More interactive results: Your events can be eligible to be displayed in the event experience on Google, featuring your logo, description of the event, and more.
  • Increased chances of discovery and conversion: People have a new way to interact with your event posting and click through to your site. Learn how Eventbrite saw a 100% increase in the typical year-over-year growth of traffic from Google Search.
Event example in search results

There are three options to make your events eligible to appear on Google:

  • If you use a third-party website to post events (for example, you post events on ticketing websites or social platforms), check to see if your event publisher is already participating in the event search experience on Google. If your event publisher is integrated with Google, continue to post your events on the third-party website. You can stop reading here.
  • If you use a CMS (for example, WordPress) and you don't have access to your HTML, check with your CMS to see if there's a plugin that can add structured data to your site for you. Alternatively, you can use the Data Highlighter to tell Google about your events without editing the HTML of your site.
  • If you're comfortable editing your HTML, use structured data to directly integrate with Google. You’ll need to edit the HTML of the event pages.

How to add structured data

Structured data is a standardized format for providing information about a page and classifying the page content. If you’re new to structured data, you can learn more about how structured data works.

Here's an overview of how to build, test, and release structured data. For a step-by-step guide on how to add structured data to a web page, check out the structured data codelab.

  1. Ensure that Googlebot can crawl your event pages (meaning, your pages aren't protected by a robots.txt file or robots meta tag).
  2. Ensure that your server can handle increased crawl rate.
  3. Make sure you follow our guidelines.
  4. If you have several copies of the same event posting on your site hosted under different URLs, use canonical URLs on each copy of the page.
  5. Add structured data to your event pages. Currently, the event experience on Google only supports pages that focus on a single event. We recommend focusing on adding markup to your event posting pages instead of pages that list schedules or multiple events.
  6. Test and preview your structured data.
  7. Check the index status of your URLs and request for your URL to be crawled with the URL inspection tool in Search Console. To confirm if crawlers are able to access structured data on your page, use the Live Test feature.
  8. Keep Google informed of new event pages or changes to existing event pages.

Examples

Standard event

Here's an example of standard Event in JSON-LD. A standard event means that the event is happening at a physical location only and the event is happened as scheduled. You can also use Microdata or RDFa syntax.

Region and language availability

We are excited to bring the event search experience on Google to more regions around the world. The experience is currently available in the following regions and languages.

Guidelines

You must follow these guidelines to be eligible to appear in the event search experience on Google.

Technical guidelines

  • The target page must contain structured data items from event types on schema.org.
  • Each event MUST have a unique URL (a leaf page) and markup on that URL.
  • Currently, the event experience on Google only supports pages that focus on a single event. We recommend focusing on adding markup to your event posting pages instead of pages that list schedules or multiple events.

Content guidelines

  • Each event must accurately describe the event name, start date, and location.
  • Avoid marking non-events as events:
    • Don’t promote non-event products or services such as "Trip package: San Diego/LA, 7 nights" as events.
    • Don’t add short-term discounts or purchase opportunities, such as: "Concert — buy your tickets now," or "Concert - 50% off until Saturday."
    • Don’t mark business hours as events, such as: "Adventure park open 8 AM to 5PM."
    • Don't mark coupons or vouchers as events, such as: "5% off your first order."
  • Mark up multi-day events correctly:
    • If your event or ticket info is for an event that runs over several days, specify both the start and end dates of the event.
    • If there are several different performances across different days, each with individual tickets, add a separate Event element for each performance.

Date and time guidelines

When implementing the startDate, endDate, and previousStartDate properties, follow these date and time guidelines.

How to specify timezones

Specify the timezone by including the UTC or GMT time offset. If the event starts at 7pm on September 5 in New York, the startDate value would be GMT/UTC-5 during standard time and GMT/UTC-4 during daylight savings time. During standard time, startDate value would be "2019-09-05T19:00:00-05:00" or "2019-09-05T19:00:00-04:00" respectively. If no timezone is provided, Google uses the timezone of the event's location as specified in location. For online events, the timezone is required, since there is no location information that Google can use to understand when the event starts.

Best practices

  • Event takes place over a range of dates: If the event takes place over the course of multiple days, indicate both the start and end date. Don't indicate the time if you don't know the time.

    Recommended

    "startDate": "2019-07-01T10:00:00-05:00",

    "endDate": "2019-07-26T23:59:59+00:00"
  • Event starts at a specific hour: If the event starts at a specific time, such as 5pm locally, use 2019-07-20T17:00:00. Include the appropriate UTC offset (for example, use 2019-07-20T17:00:00-07:00 if the event is in California).
  • Event is a day long event: If the event is happening all day, don't specify a granular hour for the start date. For example, you can use 2019-08-15 as both the startDate and endDate for a day-long event.
  • Event start hour isn't known: If you don't know the hour for the start time, don't specify a granular hour. For example, you can use 2019-08-15 as both the startDate and endDate.

    Recommended: "startDate": "2025-07-21"

    Not recommended: "startDate": "2019-08-15T00:00:00+00:00"

    Not recommended: "startDate": "2019-07-20T00:00:00"

Examples of how Google interprets dates

Here are some examples of how Google interprets start date and time:

Structured data Interpretation
2019-08-15T00:00:00+00:00 Google interprets the startTime to be 2019-08-14T17:00:00-07:00 (if location is set to California) or 2019-08-15T09:00:00 (if location is set to Korea).
2019-08-15T23:59:59+00:00 This doesn't mean the end of 2019-08-15 unless the event happens in the GMT timezone. Google interprets the startTime to be 2019-08-15T16:59:59-07:00 (if location is set to California) or 2019-08-16T08:59:59 (if location is set to Korea).
2019-07-10 This means the date regardless of the timezone. When used in startDate, it means the event starts in the location from sometime in that day. When used in endDate, it means the event ends in the location from sometime in that day.
2019-07-20T00:00:00 This means midnight on 2019-07-20 for the timezone where the event happens. This is also likely wrong unless the event was meant to start at midnight.

Structured data type definitions

The full definition of Event is available at schema.org/Event.

You must include the required properties for your content to be eligible for display in enhanced search results. You can also include the recommended properties to add more information about your content, which could provide a better user experience.

Required properties
location

Place or VirtualLocation

The location of the event. There are different requirements depending on if the event is happening online or at a physical location:

  • Physical location: If the event is happening at a physical location, set the @type to Place. Add the location.address and location.name properties.
  • Online event: If the event is happening online, set the @type to VirtualLocation. Add the location.url property.
  • Mix of online and physical locations: If an event has a mix of online and physical location components, include both online and physical nested location properties in a nested array. For example:

Physical locations

If an event is happening at a physical location, nest the following properties for location. For example:

Required properties
location.address

PostalAddress

The venue's detailed street address. This property is only required for events that take place at a physical location.

Not recommended: Sydney

Recommended: Bennelong Point, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia

Best practices for addresses:

  • If the event happens across several streets, define the starting location and mention the full details in description.
  • If the event happens without a well-defined location, use the city name or the most representative location.
  • If the event happens at multiple locations at the same time, create different events for each location.

Recommended properties
location.name

Text

The detailed name of the place or venue where the event is being held. This property is only recommended for events that take place at a physical location.

Not recommended: San Francisco, CA

Recommended: Bill Graham Civic Auditorium

Best practices:

  • Don't include a city name unless it is a city-wide event.
  • The location.name property must be the name of the venue or location, not a repeat of the title of the event. If you don't know the name of the location, don't use this property.

Online events

If an event is happening online, nest the following property in location.

Required properties
location.url

URL

The URL of the online event, where people can join. This property is required if your event is happening online.

name

Text

The full title of the event.

Not recommended: Bill Graham Civic Auditorium

Not recommended: **LIMITED TIME SALE - Kesha and Macklemore Concert - $25**

Recommended: The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore

Recommended: Meet and Greet: Kesha and Macklemore

Best practices:

  • Don't use the type of event as the name of the event. For example, "Concert" is not a descriptive name for an event.
  • Don't include extraneous information like URLs, prices, or performers. Instead, use the appropriate properties for those values.
  • Highlight a unique aspect of the event in the title. This helps users make faster decisions (for example, "feat. Q&A with the artist").
  • Don't add short-term promotions (for example, "buy your tickets now").
startDate

DateTime

The start date and start time of the event in ISO-8601 format. Add both the date and time so users can more easily find events that fit into their schedule. For online events, you must specify the timezone by including the UTC or GMT time offset.

Recommended properties
description

Text

Description of the event. Describe all details of the event to make it easier for users to understand and attend the event.

Best practices:

  • Add a clear and concise description of the specific event.
  • Focus on the event details and not your site's features.
  • Don't repeat other facts like date and location, which should be marked up in the respective properties.
endDate

DateTime

The end date and end time of the event in ISO-8601 format. Use the same format as startDate. Add both the date and time so users can more easily find events that fit into their schedule. For online events, you must specify the timezone by including the UTC or GMT time offset.

eventAttendanceMode

EventAttendanceModeEnumeration

Indicates whether the event occurs online, offline at a physical location, or a mix of both online and offline. If you don't include this property, Google understands the event mode to be OfflineEventAttendanceMode, which means Google understands that the event is happening at a physical location. Use one of the following values:

eventStatus EventStatusType

The status of the event. If you don't use this field, Google understands the eventStatus to be EventScheduled. Here are the supported values. You can use multiple statuses, if applicable (for example, if an event was both rescheduled and moved online).

EventCancelled

The event has been canceled.

EventMovedOnline

The event has been moved from in-person attendance to online attendance.

EventPostponed

The event has been postponed to a later date, but the date isn't known yet. Keep the original date in the startDate of the event until you know when the event will take place. Once you know the new date information, change the eventStatus to EventRescheduled and update the startDate and endDate with the new date information.

EventRescheduled

The event has been rescheduled to a later date. Update the startDate and endDate with the relevant new dates. Optionally, you can also mark the eventStatus field as rescheduled and add the previousStartDate.

EventScheduled

The event is scheduled to happen. This value is the default status for events. If you don't set eventStatus, Google understands the event to be happening on schedule.

image

Repeated ImageObject or URL

URL of an image or logo for the event or tour. Including an image helps users understand and engage with your event. We recommend that images are 1920px wide (the minimum width is 720px).

Additional image guidelines:

  • Every page must contain at least one image (whether or not you include markup). Google will pick the best image to display in Search results based on the aspect ratio and resolution.
  • Image URLs must be crawlable and indexable.
  • Images must represent the marked up content.
  • Images must be in .jpg, .png, or. gif format.
  • For best results, provide multiple high-resolution images (minimum of 50K pixels when multiplying width and height) with the following aspect ratios: 16x9, 4x3, and 1x1.

For example:

"image": [
  "https://example.com/photos/1x1/photo.jpg",
  "https://example.com/photos/4x3/photo.jpg",
  "https://example.com/photos/16x9/photo.jpg"
]
offers

Offer

A nested Offer, one for each ticket type.
offers.availability

Text

One of the following:

offers.price

Number

The lowest available price available for your tickets, including service charges and fees. Don’t forget to update it as prices change or tickets sell out.

offers.priceCurrency

Text

The 3-letter currency code.

offers.validFrom

DateTime

The date and time when tickets go on sale (only required on date-restricted offers), in ISO-8601 format.

offers.url

URL

The URL of a page providing the ability to buy tickets.

This URL must meet the following requirements:

  • Direct to a landing page that clearly and predominantly provides the opportunity to buy a ticket offering admittance to that specific event to any user from the general public.
  • Be a link that a user could click on the web page that contains the event.
  • Be followable by the Googlebot (not blocked by robots.txt).
organizer

Organization or Person

The person or organization that is hosting the event. This is especially important for online events, where there isn't any venue information. If you include organizer, we encourage you to add the following properties:

organizer.name

Text

The name of the person or organization that's hosting the event.

organizer.url

URL

The event host's domain URL.

performer

Person

The participants performing at the event, such as artists and comedians. Use a nested PerformingGroup or Person, one for each performer.

performer.name

Text

The name of the participant performing at the event, such as the name of the artist or comedian.

previousStartDate

DateTime

The previously scheduled start date for the event if an event has been rescheduled. If you add previousStartDate, you must also add the eventStatus property and set the eventStatus to EventRescheduled.

For online events, you must specify the timezone by including the UTC or GMT time offset.

For rescheduled events, the startDate property must only be used for the newly scheduled start date. In the (rare) case of an event that has been postponed and rescheduled multiple times, this field may be repeated.

Monitor rich results with Search Console

Search Console is a tool that helps you monitor how your pages perform in Google Search. You don't have to sign up for Search Console to be included in Google Search results, but it can help you understand and improve how Google sees your site. We recommend checking Search Console in the following cases:

  1. After deploying structured data for the first time
  2. After releasing new templates or updating your code
  3. Analyzing traffic periodically

After deploying structured data for the first time

After Google has indexed your pages, look for issues using the relevant Rich result status report. Ideally you should see an increase of valid pages, and no increase in errors or warnings. If you find issues in your structured data:

  1. Fix the errors.
  2. Inspect a live URL to check if the issue persists.
  3. Request validation using the status report.

After releasing new templates or updating your code

When you make significant changes to your website, monitor for increases in structured data errors and warnings.
  • If you see an increase in errors, perhaps you rolled out a new template that doesn't work, or your site interacts with the existing template in a new and bad way.
  • If you see a decrease in valid items (not matched by an increase in errors), perhaps you are no longer embedding structured data in your pages. Use the URL Inspection tool to learn what is causing the issue.

Analyzing traffic periodically

Analyze your Google Search traffic using the Performance Report. The data will show you how often your page appears as a rich result in Search, how often users click on it and what is the average position you appear on search results. You can also automatically pull these results with the Search Console API.

Troubleshooting

If you're having trouble implementing structured data, here are some resources that may help you.

If your event isn't appearing in the event experience on Google or if you've received a manual action for Spammy Structured Markup in Search Console, resolve the most common issues listed below and review our guidelines. If you're still experiencing issues, check the Event FAQ or post in the Webmaster forum.

Event location is missing or incorrect

error What caused the issue: Googlebot doesn't understand the values provided for the eventLocation, addressLocality, or addressRegion properties. Google tries to match the location information to a physical location, and the location provided is either missing or incorrect.

done Fix the issue

  1. Make sure the structured data includes values for eventLocation, addressLocality, or addressRegion (depending on the location, since not all of the location properties are applicable).
  2. Check that the location.name field uses the location name, or leave it blank if it does not have a name. A common issue is accidentally placing the event name in the location.name field.
  3. Validate the fix:
    1. Open the Rich Results Test.
    2. Enter the event posting URL in the Fetch URL box.
    3. Click Validate.
    4. Click Preview.

      Success: The Rich Results Test displays the correct eventLocation in the Google Search Preview Tool.

      Try again: The Rich Results Test displays "false" where the event location should be in the Google Search Preview Tool. Make sure the location is a real location.

My site isn't showing up as an option for purchasing tickets

error What caused the issue: The offers.url property is missing or doesn't meet the URL requirements.

done Fix the issue

  1. Make sure that your structured data includes the offers.url property.
  2. Ensure that your URL meets the URL requirements for offers.url.
  3. Ask Google to recrawl your site.
  4. Submit a request for (re)evaluation.

Time or date is incorrect

error What caused the issue: The time or date is incorrect. Common errors include not offsetting for the time zone or specifying an incorrect start time (for example, midnight as a start time).

done Fix the issue

  1. Specify the correct local time offset. For example, if your event starts at 7pm in New York (UTC - 5) and ends at 9pm, then the value for startDate is 2019-08-15T19:00:00-05:00 and the value for endDate is 2019-08-15T21:00:00-05:00. If you are unable to fill in the offset for your events, don't offset the time (for example, use 2019-08-15T19:00:00).
  2. Make sure the start or end time is accurate. One common mistake is setting an event to start at midnight when the event doesn't actually start at midnight. If the event is a day long event, or the start hour hasn't been announced, only specify the day. For example:

    Recommended: 2019-07-20

    Not recommended: 2019-07-20T00:00:00

    Not recommended: 2019-08-15T00:00:01+00:00

    Not recommended2019-08-15T00:00:00+00:00
