What should I do if structured data do not show in search result pages.

Please have patience as we have no control over how google or any search engine indexes your pages. It might take some days or even weeks for the robots to crawl the ratings.

I have been using a verion of this plugin prior to v3. Is it safe for me to update?

All previous ratings and options will be preserved. However, since v3 has been renewed from scratch, we do not support downgrading to v2 after upgrading to v3.

I found a bug or want to contribute.

The source of this plugin is located at Github. Feel free to post an issue or submit a pull request.

Рука не поднимается поставить 1. Это же люди трудились. Плагин с последним обновлением стал бесполезным. В гугл снипетах не показывается и в мобильной версии перестали действовать Уникальные IP. И вина скорее всего не разработчиков, а изменения в Гугле, будь они не ладны(((

Does not seem to be compatible with the Newspaper theme. The review starts appear below the footer.

This plugin was once integral to every site I built. However, it's now useless with the latest round of updates by Google. Don't bother using this unless you just want to gauge the value the readers place on your content because Google doesn't care. I don't completely fault the developer for the Google update. That being said, the latest updates for the plugin have not been good. Also, having more schema control within the plugin by the user, so that Google doesn't ignore the rating, should have been a part of the plugin from the start and then none of this would be an issue now.

Since the last update (more than 1 month) the plugin is not working properly: 1) Not showing star ratings on Google 2) Automatically injecting schema on every freaking page (welcome penalty issues) 3) Google snippet tools showing following error: “CreativeWork is not a known valid target type for the itemReviewed property.” Used to be really good plugin, but now it's just waste of time.
