WPSSO Ratings and Reviews / Replies with Schema Aggregate Ratings (Including WooCommerce)


Compatible with WooCommerce product ratings and reviews.

Extends the WordPress comment system with ratings and reviews:

  • Star ratings can be enabled/disabled by post type or individual post.

  • A rating value can be required (or not) before reviews are accepted.

  • The review form is correctly labeled as a “Review”.

  • The review reply form is correctly labeled as a “Reply”.

  • The color of star ratings can be customized from the settings page.

Provides Schema Aggregate Rating meta tags and JSON-LD markup:

Google reads aggregate rating meta tags (or the optional Schema JSON-LD markup) to add star ratings to search results (WPSSO JSON Pro add-on required for JSON-LD markup). WooCommerce product ratings and reviews are also included in the aggregate rating meta tags and JSON-LD markup.

Includes complete Schema Review as optional JSON-LD markup:

Including information about the review (author name, creation time, excerpt, rating), along with the threaded replies / comments for each review (WPSSO JSON Pro add-on required for JSON-LD markup).

No templates to modify or update!

Simply activate / deactivate the plugin to enable / disable the addition of ratings and reviews.

WPSSO Core Plugin Prerequisite
