    Or can we also be using this for locations, vacation sites, etc?

      You can (and should) use it for all reviews.  It includes a special markup which tells Google you're reviewing something.

      When it first came out, I thought it was a bad move to put the ratings capsule in the "recipe" section, because I'm sure a lot of people will react as you have, and think they can't use it for anything else.

        You may can answer my question, Marisa. I have several review hubs up and have considered using the rating in my hubs. However, the hubs review three to four items. We can only add one rating capsule per hub, right? No way to put it in multiple items?

          One per Hub, as far as I'm aware.

            It's just one per hub which is sad

        Thanks Marisa,

        It seems that I can use it in many more of my existing hubs than first expected.  Thus far, I have only used it in recipe hubs.

    Yup, you can use it for anything you're reviewing (although it is confusing since you find it in the recipe section...) I use it in my music album reviews and invite readers to cast their vote as well. I've noticed when I see the hubs in google it shows the current star rating just below the title.

    Just another question, if the rating capsule is somewhere at the end of the hub does it show on google with the rating?

      I don't know, lobobrandon, but I would assume so.  It makes a bit of sense to have it near the end after a person has read the entire hub.  Just my opinion, of course.  smile
