    Does anyone have a star rating next to their HP/niche site article on Googles search engine? If so, how did you go about it?

      I don't know what you're talking about. Can you give me an example I can look at.

        Sure I was just checking one of my articles, and found a site that copied the dog breeds I listed but changed the wording, so my site is below them. Just below my article is another from shopus.furbo.com with 4 stars.
        Type Best dog for someone who works all day into Google and it should show up.

      We were discussing this some months on this thread.

        Based on that forum conversation, and your display of the Wikihow example, I think it is something we need to use at times. It certainly makes an article stand out.

          It certainly does, but if every page on a SERP  eventually uses it, the article will no longer standout. However the number of votes might give a reader an indication of the quality of the page. I wonder whether there's a mechanism to stop reader's repeatedly voting or do they just use a cookie or something to prevent this?

            I am not sure. I was reading about a service (you have to pay, of course) that sets this up, but I am not sure if it is just a way to scam the system. If ratings were limited it would probably be more worthwhile.

          So did you find out how to have the ratings entered into our hubs? I'm wondering If adding a rating capsule and then if the Hubpage team puts the ratings in the markups somehow, if that's how to get it added in search engine descriptions???

            From my reading of the forum that Eugene listed, I do not think we are even able to use it.

            Paul said he would consider testing it on a few pages, but with all the other stuff that has been going on over the past months, I presume it's low priority.

    I just copied this so the rating is not showing up as an image, just as text
