Hi all, it appears my rich snippets have disappeared from my search results. I'm a home inspector. Reading on the Schema.org it says my "@type":"ProfessionalService" has been deprecated. I'm not sure if this is the reason for the disappearance of my rich snippets (visible star ratings on organic search results).

Any thoughts on what adjustments I should make to my snippets to restore their presence? Should I change the type to "@type":"HomeInspector" ? I doubt that is a recognized type that would allow snippets to appear.

Here's a few schema types that my be suitable:



Script below:

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
"@context": "Home - schema.org",
"@type":"ProfessionalService",
"name":"Direct Inspections",

When you say rich snippets are you referring to gold stars? Google started removing them as of September of this year. The thread/discussion on that is here.

Yes, thanks. Do you know of any way to get our review stars to appear in the organic results?

I'd suggest trying a different variation of the schema code. Do some searching until you find a competitor that has the gold stars still showing (I've seen several still have them since this update) and copy what they're using.
