How To Get Gold Star Ratings in Google Search Results with Eooro
Stars ratings under your URLs in Google search results not only make your site standout from the competition, it is also estimated to increase traffic by as much as 20%.
The gold stars ratings come from ‘Aggregated Data’ which is produced by coding your website with Schema Mark Up code… but don’t worry if you know nothing about coding, that’s where we come in.
Our widgets contain the coding you will need to get those gold stars, simply drop our widgets into your website and that’s it.
Google has a few rules you must follow in order to get the gold stars, the 2 most important ones are;
1. You MUST display the reviews you collect on your website.
2. You MUST allow reviews to be written directly on your website.
Not following these rules might get your site penalized by Google and this could really hurt your rankings, so make sure to follow all our steps below.
Go to the Gold Star Ratings tab in your My Account area and follow the 3 steps below;
STEP 1 Download & Install
Download the file from Step 1 and unzip it, then drop it into the root folder of your website.
The root folder might have a different name like ‘public’, ‘web’ or ‘public_html’.
Put a Rich Snippet widget on 7 of your most popular product or service pages.
Copy the code marked by the red arrow and paste it on the page you want to get star ratings for.
Install a Review Widget on your website
Just like in Step 2, copy the code (marked by the red arrow) and paste it where you want to display reviews.
If you put it into the footer it should appear on every page of your site.
You can also use different widgets on different pages of your site.
After completing all 3 steps, go to Googles Webmaster Tools and re-index the pages with the Rich Snippets.
If all was done correctly you should see gold star ratings start appearing for your site in a few weeks, new websites can take longer as they will have no authority (DA/PA). If you need any help, please email our support team at [email protected] or talk to us via the Live Chat service on Eooro.
