Ratings Rich text Snippets - Tutorial

Ever seen the search listings in Google that has rating stars underneath them?

Gigalicous has them!

Here`s how to add them to your webpages!

It`s simple, very simple!

Add this code to the page you would like them to appear on.

Code:
<!-- rts -->

  
  <div id="RichSnippets">
        <b>
            <span itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/product">
                <span itemprop="name">Gigalicous</span>
                  
                                                
            
            <span itemprop="aggregateRating" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/aggregaterating">
               are rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">4.5</span> / 5 based on <span itemprop="reviewCount">5</span> <a href="testimonials.php">reviews</a>.
            </span>
            </span>
            </b>
        
    </div>

<!-- rts -->

Edit as required to match your rating, I would suggest you point them to a reviews page or a testimonials page to add authenticity. Edit the div tag as required to match your website layout. I would suggest adding them somewhere non intrusive, footer for example.

Love it, I've been looking hard for this!

Thats awesome, going to add that to my next website Clapping

A question on this - why would anyone want to ever show 1 star? I mean if you think about it, that would be offputting to visitors - if I see a 1 star rating underneath a site, I'm hesitant to visit that site since it looks soo poorly rated.
#8
I must say I rarely look at stars. I usually visit Websites on a mission and with an objective. Reviews I don't mind looking at, but stars I rarely notice. If I would notice a one star, I'd just think not many people have visited that Website yet. It could be a hidden gem, or not.

#9
Especially if it's not relevant to your search. For example if I'm looking up lyrics to a song, the rating isn't really going to influence my decision to click on that site. Same with looking up information on health - if I were to search up "Cancer symptoms" - a site that shows up 5 stars is going to be confusing - are they rating cancer as 5 stars?

Right, that would be a bit of a catastrophe. Tongue

It happened to ebay - in the early days of adwords they bought searches for everything so it would be:

Find keyword on Ebay

People doing searches for slavery would get "Find slavery on Ebay" or in one funny picture "Buy Black People on Ebay" - it went viral, and of course ebay removed those ads immediately.

Its working again. I can see star rating when input "site:YOUR_DOMAIN" into google.

i use vote based rating stars
and i use random votes number
PHP Code:
$reting rand(100500); 
echo 
"<div itemscope='' itemtype='http://data-vocabulary.org/Review-aggregate'>
<span itemprop='rating' itemscope='' itemtype='http://data-vocabulary.org/Rating'>
<meta itemprop='average' content='5' />
<meta itemprop='votes' content='"
.$reting."' />
</span>
