Support » Plugin: Plugin for Google Reviews » Great plugin, does what it says and looks good on front end.

  • Improvement suggestion would be to add Schema Ratings / Reviews / Aggregate reviews to the page to help even further.

    Hi @clicknathan,

    Thank you for a great suggestion, however at the moment Google reviews are not indexing with a Rich Snippets on own business website, please read below why.

    According to the changes in Sep 2019, Google forbidden a LocalBusiness and Organisation schema type in the Rich Snippets for all sites except a listing/directory-sites (like Yelp or Facebook), according to this it’s not possible to use in the business plugin.

    Here is a source:

    Also Google disallows using other schema types like Product, Book or Recipe for Google map reviews. Because these types should be described about a specific item, not reviews for a company, service or some business.

    However, some other plugins have such a workaround, I mean use a Product schema type for a map reviews, unfortunately, Google can mark the page with this markup like a spammy rating and drop from a search. We can’t take that risk and didn’t add this workaround to our plugin.
