Can a rating capsule be used to rate a place (not a recipe) in a travel related hub?
Hub page learning center has information about rating capsule, but it describes its use in a recipe hub. I am not sure if I can use this for a travel hub. Is HP review capsule is similar to Google’s rich snippets as described in https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/146645
Anyone who has experience with the use of rating capsule for travel hub, please share.
You can absolutely use it for your travel hub. I've seen it used for them a few times. I've also used it myself for book review hubs.
I guess it's just slightly more practical for recipe hubs because you can go out and buy the ingredients for a recipe and make it that night and rate it right then and there. Whereas with a travel hub people are not likely to come back and rate it after they took your advice.
I guess you would be better off using a poll.
- Been there, loved it
- Been there, wasn't impressed
- Want to go
- Not interested
Yes, you can . I noticed that "ratings" does appear in two different places when you're writing a hub -- there's one under "recipes," but then another one above it. I use the one that's not under the recipe heading for my reviews, and it does seem to be very helpful to people to have that little at-a-glance piece of information.

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read it is generally a good idea to have one or two hubs already posted before I try...

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 (Wikihow and similar sites support them).
