    Rich Snippets


    Hi I was wondering if someone could help, is it possible to change the rating rich snippet from displaying: “Rating: 5 - Review by” to displaying “Rating: 5 – Rating by”

    I don’t think this is possible just wanted confirmation as I’m new to Rich Snippets.

    thanks

    Unfortunately the Votes display isn’t really accurate in this case. Essentially a ratings house has given a service a 5 star rating. The company providing the service has set up a page explaining the service and included the rating in the page, they then want to include a rich snippet displaying the rating, currently it displays “Rating: 5 - Review by (company name)” but it isn’t really a review, it’s a rating so can it be changed to “Rating: 5 - Rating by (company name)”?

    If your using a 3rd party widget to display the ratings then they will have to make the change for you.
    The code I posted was if you was doing it yourself and had control over the code.

    Sorry, seems there’s confusion here, when I mean service I don’t mean offering me a web design service I mean their product is an insurance service. Their insurance service has been rated 5 star by an insurance ratings company. The insurance company has added the rich snippet to the page which comes out in google. On the Google SERPs, the rich snippet shows but states, “review by”. The ratings company wants it to display “rated by” in the SERPs, is this possible?

    <span class="hreview"><span class="item"><span class="fn">Crest Car Insurance</span></span> has been awarded a <span class="rating">5</span> star rating from <span class="reviewer">ACME</span>.</span>

    which appears as:Rating: 5 - Review by ACME

    I'd like it to appear as: Rating: 5 - Rating by ACME

    I dont think you have included the important bit. Its the "itemprop" that I am sure if set from Review to Rating it will do what your after but the above code is only a section of the rich snippet
