Stars not displaying on Google Search Results (6 posts)

    I have been using this plugin for quite some time now and I like it very much.
    But no matter what I do, the starts simply will not show up on google search results
    If I go ti Google Rich Snippets Testing Tool and test any of the pages, I get this extracted rich snippet data from the page:

    hreview-aggregate
    item fn = homepage
    rating
    best = 5
    average (normalized to 5.0 scale) = 5.0
    average = 5.00 / 5
    count =
    votes = 1

    I have read the entire Google guidelines for aggregate reviews and I am assuming that the problem is probably because the plugin is displaying count without containing review markup for each reviewed item, it should only display votes
    Any way to solve this?

    Hi Vevelsted,

    I was looking to download and use this plugin till i saw your post.
    Have you had any luck figuring this out? Have you had better luck with other plugins?

    Also, the developer and other users,...please let us know if the star rating is actually showing up in goodle. Without that this plugin is worthless.

    Thank you,

    Dan

    It doesn't seem Google changed their specs, so this must work.

    Keep in mind that only single posts will contain that information, so stars will show up in search results on those pages only.

    Sorry, but it is stays the same
    What I really need is a plugin that will work on static pages, but despite that, it also does not show on Posts
    Just confirmed a few moments ago
    I have a post with 4 votes, it has remained untouched for several months, and yet the stars will not display in any Google search results that will return that url
