    Well you could try Googling the answer.
    Google Shopping seller ratings - Google Merchant Center Help

    Or searching for it in this forum
    http://forums.seochat.com/e-commerce...**-463760.html

    Or I guess you could just ask to be spoon fed.
    The short answer is that google looks at specific review sites. If your company has more than 50 reviews you may see the stars show up.

    Don't get 50 bad reviews.

    "This product has been reviewed 267 time(s) with an overall rating of 91 out of 100."
    Many sites let you rate a product without reviewing it. I imagine that is what is happening here.

    And yes in this case it is a rich snipit associated with a single product.
