It was the new hotness 4-5 years ago. It was abused (like most things) and Google put training wheels on it so that it no longer appeared on a site's index page. I'm sure @Joy could provide more detail, but that's a jist of it.I would think every one of you SEOs would be talking about using correct review schema markup, which I have not seen, is that is all that is needed. And why would this markup on the homepage be unsuccessful but on interior page be successful? And surely this markup is not all there is to it.
Yep we've been talking about it here for years. Use the search box and enter schema stars and you'll fine about 50 posts. Then search for schema reviews and you'll find over 200 posts.Surely this is not all there is to it. I would think every one of you SEOs would be talking about using correct review schema markup, which I have not seen, is that is all that is needed.
See sentence above. A few years ago you'd see 4 out of 7 attys in competitive markets with the stars. But as usual the spammers and scammers ruined it for the rest of us - so it's really hard to get them to show. I know top gurus who tried and tried a couple years ago before Google clamped down and they were usually unable to get consistent, repeatable results.Yes I have carefully reviewed the review schema that phillipslaw.com used and have in fact recreated it on my wordpress website. It has not resulted in delicious review stars in organic.
What everyone above said is true Stan.And why would this markup on the homepage be unsuccessful but on interior page be successful? And surely this markup is not all there is to it.
I wouldn't call it a anomaly. Do some research. You've got everything you need to make it happen here in this thread. It seems to me like you're just looking for a Do 'this' and get 'this' result type of answer; which is rarely the case for Google....the review stars in google SERP that lucky phiillipslaw.com has is simply an anomaly (i.e, not worth trying to reproduce?)
