  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    The star rating is added for any page that has a schema that supports review snippet. Please check the following Google link for schema types that support rating: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/review-snippet

    You can then select the chosen schema for your page in Rank math meta box under the schema tab
    Hope this helps you. Thank you.

    Thank you for that but could you please go a bit in-depth and explain more on what to do. Thanks!


    Rank math offes the Local Business schema as sitewide business type.

    To have star ratings for your page(s)/post(s) using Rank math, you will need to use an on page schema type that supports star rating. To set this, just head to edit your page/post then in Rank math metabox under Schema tab click on schema generator and select either of the following schema types:
    Software App

    These are the types that support rating with Rank math and adding them to your page will automatically add the rating schema to your page markup.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.


    I have an electrical business as I’m an electrician and I service in peoples houses such as installing lights and fans and maintenance and all that. So what type of schema from the list you provided would be best suitable for the rating? Thanks!


    An easy way to add ratings to your site a case such as yours, would be to create a Google my Business account and add your details. Here is a simple guide to Google my business. You can then have your customers leave a review for your site on Google .
