These snippets are eligible for the following languages:Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, and Turkish.
This structured data is for editorial product review pages only, not for user-generated reviews and merchant product reviews.
2 Why Should You Add the Pros and Cons Structured Data?
Adding pros and cons helps your editorial review pages with all the enhancements in SERPs and might rank higher in the long run.
