Star Rating System

Hello,

 

Guys can anyone update me on the rating stars change over the last 12 months or next 12 months?

 

Something about no one being allowed to get stars until 12 months of reviews vs. having 40 4+ stars to have the extension automatically activated via Google?

 

Any information is appreciated.

Hi there,

 

Yeah generally all you have to do is get 30+ positive ratings on a review site that is known to be crawled by Google (TrustPilot, ReviewCentre) and then it will automatically correlate these reviews with the destination URL of your ad and start showing the stars.

 

I'd hazard a guess that there are also QS factors here; i.e. they won't show it on a QS 2 triggered ad in 6th position, but a strong QS in the top 3 will show stars.

 

Does that help any?

Jack excellent stuff. I should have accepted that as an answer but just before - do you have any idea about the change in star rating (i.e no stars activated until 12 months as opposed to 30+ 4 stars?)
