Getting rich snippet rating stars to show

  • If I’m reviewing online services, in Rank Math, do I choose software as the schema and then do the rating as like 4 stars (1 being minimum and 5 being maximum)? Is that all I need to do to get the rich snippet stars to show up on my review page in Google?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Rank Math plugin adds the necessary markup for rich snippets.Please check your URL with Google rich results test tool: https://search.google.com/test/rich-results and ensure there are no errors and your rating data is shown. If so then all you need to do is wait for Google to add this to your page results. It may take some time before they show up in the search results, please allow a few days for Google to pick up the information.

    Google will not necessarily show the rating stars, though, they check a few things first and may choose not to show, for instance, they check the overall quality of the site, and if the review content is representative of the main content of the page or not.

    Here is a quote from one of the Google’s help article:

    We perform algorithmic and manual quality checks to ensure that structured data meets relevancy standards. In cases where we see structured data that does not comply with these standards, we reserve the right to disable rich snippets for a site in order to maintain a high-quality search experience for our users. Read our webmaster guidelines for more details.
