ZOMDir's Page inspector to the rescue

Recently I launched ZOMDir's Page inspector. This tool gives insight in the structure and the 'hidden' content of any web page.

When I tested it on the many subdomains of ZOMDir, I discovered that there was room for improvement in the JSON-LD code used.

It was a small change in de code, hence I updated, by hand, the JSON-LD code and without any checks I published the code. 

Oops ... a few days later Google mailed me ...

So I checked the code with ZOMDir's Page inspector and indeed there was an error. However the error given was much more detailed. 

ZOMDir's Page inspector stated that there was an 

Unexpected token / in JSON at position 554 

and showed the JSON code. 

Handy. In a few seconds the bug was fixed and checked :-)
