FAQ

Google rich snippets are not being displayed, what can I do?

The snippet code vocabulary has been updated. Have some patience and let google crawl your posts/pages again for some days. You could also check if the structured data is valid.

Why can’t I see more than 5 reviews?

The Google API only lets you see at most 5 reviews at a time. Our plugin will continue to collect reviews and over time, you can have the option to display more reviews on your page, especially ones that you are partial towards.

Why can’t I see reviews on my website?

When you encounter this problem, you should check the Retrieved Data tab in Dashboard→Settings. Check if there’s any error there and follow Google API’s advice.
