We have recently managed to get Rich Snippet Star Ratings showing up in Google SERPS!
As such I thought I’d share it with the world in the hope somebody out there will find it useful. You too can get lots of pretty stars showing up next to your listing in Google! Your click through rate will instantly increase…
Take a look at one of the sites I work on: http://www.engravedgiftideas.com/ notice the review centre feed… This snippet is generated from our UK based independent review website, Google will accept other sites but check first – as you don’t want to put lots of work into getting testimonials for Google not to accept them.
To build up the reviews when we get a happy customer we ask them to simply leave an review on: http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews259433.html we then simply hardcoded the following into the index page:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product"> <span itemprop="name">Engraved Gift Ideas</span> <div itemprop="aggregateRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/AggregateRating"> <span itemprop="ratingValue">4.9</span> stars - based on <span itemprop="reviewCount">128</span> reviews </div> </div>
Google picked up the Rich Snippet Star Ratings in only 2 days!
Remember to keep the index page updated with accurate data as your customer reviews grow.
