  • I was able to resolve this issue by modifying GD Star Rating code.

    They have a major flaw in their design, in which they “hide” the snippet data with inline CSS. Google doesn’t like this and therefore doesn’t render the ratings.

    Here’s how you fix it:

    MAKE A COPY OF THIS FILE BEFORE YOU EDIT IT!

    Open: /plugins/gd-star-rating/gdragon/gd_google.php

    Edit the following line numbers 89 & 149 from:

    $hidden = $options[“hidden”] ? ‘ style=”display: none !important;”‘ : ”;

    TO:

    $hidden = $options[“hidden”] ? ‘ style=”position:absolute;left:-9999999px;”‘ : ”;

    Save, upload, sit tight for 24 hours and Google will start showing your rating inline with your results.

    Good luck!
