What is Overall Rating?

It is the vote given by who writes the review: readers are able to see this vote in read-only mode.
With the classic editor, when you create or update a page or a post, a box (metabox) will be available in the upper right corner where you’ll
be able to insert the overall rating.
With the new Guteneberg editor, just click on the “+” icon to add a block and search for Yasr Overall Rating.
You can either place the overall rating automatically at the beginning or the end of a post (look in “Settings”
-> “Yet Another Stars Rating: Settings”), or wherever you want in the page using the shortcode

(easily added through the visual editor).


What is Visitor Rating?

It is the vote that allows your visitors to vote: just paste this shortcode

What is Multi Set?

It is the feature that makes YASR awesome. Multisets give the opportunity to score different aspects for each review: for example, if you’re reviewing a videogame, you can create the aspects “Graphics”, “Gameplay”, “Story”, etc. and give a vote for each one. To create a set, just go in “Settings” -> “Yet Another Stars Rating: Settings” and click on the “Multi Sets” tab. To insert it into a post, just paste the shortcode that YASR will create for you.

Why I don’t see stars in google?

Please be sure that if you use mostly the “yasr_visitor_votes” shortcode, you’ve to select “Aggregate Rating” to the question “Which rich snippet do you want to use?” in the General Settings.
If, instead, your website use mostly the “yasr_overall_rating” shortcode, you’ve to select “Review Rating”.
Google will need some days to index the stars.
You can use the [Structured Data Testing Tool](https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/u/0/) to validate your page.
If you set up everythings fine, in 99% of cases your stars will appear in a week.
If doesn’t, it’s suggested to ask in a SEO oriented forum.
