Split: How to add Rich Snippets stars

  • Hi I am using RankMath star function on google search. I have noticed the new change of google and read through all the Q&A above. So I am going to my product page and click the RankMath 26/100 button -> Choose the Schema -> Schema type(Product) -> Rating min 1 max 5 ratings 5. Then I check the general tab, the preview section it shows there are 5 stars under the heading text. But when I going to real google search it does not appear there? Is it just because take time? or some steps I am setting wrong. Many thanks

  • Hello,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    If you test the page on Google’s Structured data testing tool, there shouldn’t be any errors:
    https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/u/0/

    If that is the case, there is nothing to worry about and it is just a waiting game until Google decides to include Schema for your website. Please note that although Rank Math adds proper schema to your website, it is ultimately Google’s decision if they want to include them with your website or not. It depends on a lot of factors, authority and backlinks being just the 2 of them.

    Here’s what Google says:

    “Google does not guarantee that your structured data will show up in search results, even if your page is marked up correctly according to the Structured Data Testing Tool.”

    You can read more about the guidelines on this page:
    https://developers.google.com/search/docs/guides/sd-policies

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

    Many thanks Uzair, your reply really helps me a lot. RankMath has the best support team. Do you know normally how long time, google will give result? Or will google let me know the result? So I can change the web and apply again.

    Hello,

    There is no actual specific time we can give you as this depends entirely on Google Algorithms.

    To make your site and URLs ready and ensure there are no errors related to your structured data is the best you can do. You can use Google Rich results test tool to test and check your URLs for any issues that may hinder them from being legible for Rich results: https://search.google.com/test/rich-results

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.

    Great news feedback. Yes, Google has accepted the star function. But it shows Rating: 5 – Review by admin

    How could I just delete the “review by admin”, or how could I just change it to “review by customers”.

    Hello,

    This value is loaded with the rating from the post author of the post. To change it you will need to change you user display name or assign the post to a different author as shown below:
    img

    You can modify this with a filter, for example, let’s say you want to show as the author’s name “user”, you should add this code:

    /**
    * Filter to change review display location
    *
    * @param string $text Default Editor’s choice.
    */
    add_filter( ‘rank_math/review/text’, function( $text ) {
    return "user";
    });

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.

    Thank you for reply, Michael. Sorry my bad, I think I do not give enough information. I would like to add the 5 stars function in the page of my website like say the page of “customized uniform” it is not a post or blog, it is a page of showing all my previous customized uniforms.

    So Can I still use the “user display name” method as you suggest? If yes, where I can find it? Or where should I go to add the code? Sorry, I am a very newbie.

    Hello,

    The same applies for your page. You can also use the Quick Edit option to change the Page editor:
    img

    The code is an alternative, it should be added to your active theme functions.php, at the end.

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.
