    Use Schema.org (Data Structure) and set a review pattern that show in google search engine ranking.

    If you want to do it for Google then you do it with Google Webmasters Tool. First you have to submit your website to the Google Webmasters Tool and then click on the search appearance and then on structured data. If you do it for other search engines too then use schema.org

    Hi DeepakPandey

    Here are the rules...
    1. Google says not to put this code on the homepage of your site.
    2. Add it to just 1 page. Wait a couple of weeks before you add it to another page. Again, Google's rules.
    3. Find out how many current Google reviews you have and put that number in "ReviewCount".
    4. Find out the star rating, again from the Google reviews, put that number in "RatingValue"
    5. Use your product name for "Your Product Name"
    Don't fugue the numbers, Google will know....
    Wait a couple of weeks, or next crawl, after the change to expect any visible results in the serps.

    This code has no visible effect on the page. So you will not see any difference on your page.
    You can even do the same thing with sales. Google has examples and so do many other places on the web.

    Put the following code just above the </body> tag
    Code:
    <script type="application/ld+json">
    { "@context": "http://schema.org",
      "@type": "Product",
      "name": "Your Product Name",
      "aggregateRating":
        {"@type": "AggregateRating",
         "ratingValue": "4.5",
         "reviewCount": "4"
        }
    }
    </script>

    I have a competitor who ranks highly with G reviews stars showing in SERP. This appears to be the html that generates the reviews. I have replaced the full url that links to their G review page with XXX.

    <div class="hreview-aggregate"> <a href="https://www.google.com.au/search?q=XXX" target="_blank"><span class="rating"> <span class="average">4.9</span> out of <span class="best">5</span> </span> star reviews based on <span class="votes">615</span> ratings.</a> </div>
    Firstly is this all that is required to create the review stars to show or is there something else in the source i may have missed?

    Secondly, is this an acceptable method or will G eventually ignore or penalise?

    Eclipsed just use the code I posted just above your post and you will be in safe waters, also not do not put the code on your homepage, that is a Google NO NO !

    Where do I put the code if I'm using a wordpress theme? If I put it above the body tag it will be overwritten/removed when the theme is updated. I know there are plugins for this but they can sometimes be unstable and create other conflicts

    Navigate to to the following directory
    \wp-content\themes\your-theme-what-ever-you-call-it

    find this file

    footer.php

    Open this file. You should see the following three lines of code at the bottom,

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    ---------------------------


    insert code where I point out below, then save it to the server.
    (btw the 4.5 and 4 are just example numbers you would use your actual google review count and rating numbers)

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    <!-- Insert code here -->

    <script type="application/ld+json">
    { "@context": "http://schema.org",
    "@type": "Product",
    "name": "Your Product Name",
    "aggregateRating":
    {"@type": "AggregateRating",
    "ratingValue": "4.5",
    "reviewCount": "4"
    }
    }
    </script>
    <!-- end of inserted code -->

    </body>
    </html>

    Knowonespecial is right here but can I just add a word of caution.
    Dont put a average of all reviews on your footer so it appears on every page on your site. It should be for the product or service on the page.

    Adding a average of all your reviews site wide is considered by google as confusing to users and will issue a penalty for misleading them, I know this for a fact as I received one lol

    Thanks for the extra detail

    I just checked out the G Search console "Data Highlighter" tool. It looks like that does it all for you. Can you just use that to add structured data or should I still add the code as suggested above?

    If you do your research, then you will find there are many little snippets of value that you can use.

    You can use code that says you have a sale scheduled from date x to date y, just do your research.

    You should NEVER edit the parent theme. I suggest creating a child theme and put the edited version there. This way if the theme gets updated, your edits will not effect that.
