Fix – Image Error Schema.org for local business listing 5/5 (1)

Google is changing everyday and so it keep updating the way it shows its results. From the recent Google local updates many listing are getting one error like Image Error Schema.org for local business listing.

Image : A value for the image field is required.

This field was not mandatory and so there was no such error shown to those listing who checked couple of weeks ago. Google made this mandatory, to avoid any error, please use the below solution.

We have been asked by many companies, how to get this error solved. I would like to share the same in this post which could help them.


People who are using HTML Schema tags would have to use

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/LocalBusiness">
<p itemprop="image"><img src="image-url" alt="Business name logo"/></p>
<p itemprop="name">
    <a itemprop="hasMap" href="https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/-map----url">Business Name</a>
<div class="address" itemprop="address" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/PostalAddress">
