Since we all read and write so much, I thought it would be ideal to have a capsule dedicated to reviews. I didn't add product reviews because I don't want to have marketers self promoting those. Unless the capsule automatically prevents self promoting products.
It would be nice to have a four or five star (or more) rating system built into a review capsule like Rotten Tomatoes or Goodreads. Maybe HP could sum the ratings and come up with an average rating after multiple reviews.
Personally, I think product reviews are fine, as long as they're fairly unbiased. You'd be surprised at how many reviews are farmed out to content mills. I wouldn't want that to happen here
That maybe the reason the capsule doesn't exist, too open for abuse. I am hopeful that they can design it well enough, it would reduce biased reviews. The nice thing is books are pinnable on Pinterest. Ratings would suit it well.
We have a Ratings capsule that does exactly this.
Add the Ratings capsule to your Hub, and select 'Single Person Rating.' Per the instructions in the Rating capsule: "If you are writing a review, select Single Person Rating or Multiple Person Rating. If you are writing a recipe, select Recipe Rating."

I just had one of these capsules snipped from a hub. Why can't we use them in non-recipe hubs? If Hubpages had pages coded to support Google Review stars, hubs would stand out from the competition in search results...

....or is that already the case?There's a lot of discussion that links in photo capsules are often "unrelated". Many people are going to great lengths to create separate text boxes for photo...
