Dear Experts,

From what I can see , google removed reviews showing up in Serps for local business schema markup in the recent September Algo update.

However, I have come across some websites that still has review markup showing for every single page and I can't work out what they are doing differently especially
when I compare their schema markup to other site.

Here is two examples, see attached image. This is happening on google.co.uk

Any idea ?

thanks
Georgie

Hey Georgie, the only answer I have is that Google did clearly say it would be a while until all of the applicable local business ratings would be removed from view. It could be that you've just encountered some that have yet to be removed. Unless someone with more insight pipes in, I suggest hanging on a bit longer (eom?) before putting much energy into this. Just my two bits.

Hi All,
Yes reviews are showing for local business markup. Infact every single page i can see from this website is showing reviews which is odd given that every other similar site is showing no reviews.

This is happening on google.co.uk . How do them get it show ? I can't seem to work it out.

I was just about to post the same, I'm still seeing review stars for certain insurance agents, namely Allsate, Farmers, Nationwide agents.
