    It does include semantic attributes for the rating, using schema.org's "product" and "aggregaterating".

    I still think it's not a good idea to use "product" as a default and non-customizable semantic for my content, since I'll use it for recipes, local business and other stuff...

    Would be nice to have it customizable, at least.

    @Miguel - You can change the attributes inside the php file (wp-postratings).

    However. It won't work. He uses a span instead of a div and google doesn't understand the rich snippets correctly then. Because everything has to be inside a div with the itemscope itemtype.

    So, change from span to div in the php file on row 485. Then it will work. You can test here: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets.

    Hope that helps you!

    I already did, actually, I removed the rich snippets implementation, but I really hate doing that. Now I have to keep checking the updates and change everytime... It should have a switch-off button on the admin settings.

    I built my own rich snippets system, based on my website contents.

    About the div/span thing, both of them work with rich snippets, it's the attribute that counts, doesn't matter the element.

    Tried with span and it didn't work so I changed to div and it now works. So it has to have some effect.

    But I agree. Should be more customizable. The author of the plugin is no longer working actively with development of his plugins. SO we'll have to wait and see.

    Div and span works just fine, I tested with span on the Google Rich, try this url http://lesterchan.net/wordpress/2012/06/14/wordpress-3-4/ on http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets it is using span.

    I can make it customizable no problem, maybe a switch to enable or disable it and a template variable juts for that.
