How do I get my Google review rating to appear with my business url in search results?

I added LocalBusiness schema to my site, which has been confirmed with the Structured Data Testing Tool. There's also organization schema connecting to the business G+ page, & if I want to edit my business data, I have to do it through Google My Business (so it seems the G+ page & Google Business are connected).

 

I'd like my aggregate star review (currently at the beginning 4.8 rating) to appear in search results when my business url appears in search. Do I need to do anything else or will it appear automatically at some point?

Hi Arp,

 

This isn't really a Google My Business related question as I believe you're talking about review snippets for non-map search results, but no, they won't start appearing the way your site is marked up.

 

There have also been recent updates to the guidelines would apply to what I think you're trying to accomplish. Here's more info about it: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/reviews

 

The first section is applicable as well as this section lower on the page: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/reviews#review-snippet-guidelines

I'm talking about the Google reviews visible on my business' G+ page: https://plus.google.com/+Sunriseprowebsites/about?gmbpt=true&hl=en

Or when you Google my business name:

I'd like the aggregate review score to appear under my website's name in search results.

I guess Google doesn't automatically link business reviews with the associated website. I'll check the links out & do it manually, thank you.

Good Afternoon,

 

Some time ago Google did display the stars for Google reviews in the results snippet but they stopped displaying them quite a while back - they only appear in the Knowledge Graph card now.

 

Also note, Google doesn't display review stars for the homepage (when adding structured data) because when marking up reviews, the main topic of the page must be about the item being reviewed, typically a homepage is not focused on any one item - I hope this makes sense.

Hi.  This might not get seen, but I noticed yesterday that you can submit a link to people to post a review on your company.  I had three come in, but one just will not get thru to me - to the point that even the email to say someone has sent you a review, hasn't come in.

 

Why might this be so?  Is there some support where they can see the review and tell me why it hasn't been accepted.

 

Surely the point of reviews is to give others an insight into your business.  Their policies seem to be so restrictive, that you cannot even ask people if they would LIKE to post a review.
