Since we are going to do products we want to go to a product URL. I am going to enter:

https://kbathandbody.com/product/orange-tulip-shea-butter-soap-bar-pick-scent/

I will choose “Products” from the drop down menu. Then I will select tag this page and others like it since I have several products in this website.

Product pages are set up different than article pages. Notice the “product” in the URL string. The layout is set up different. The purpose of the data highlighter is to tell Google where certain attributes are located.

THis is what the page looks like that we are telling Google to load in the data highlighter.
