Increase your SEO traffic with Rich Snippets !
Have you ever noticed the stars in Google's search results?
I’m sure you did!
With YASR you can have them too, quickly and easily! For each post or page on your site, you can select how the stars should appear, with a lot of settings available!
In order to do this, YASR will automatically fills in the necessary microdata using the JSON-LD standard.
Below the editor (works with both Gutenberg or Classic Editor) you will find a box like this:
The first thing you need to know is that stars in search results can be indexed using two different kind of properties:
Review or AggregateRating
Review must be used if the post (or page) is a review. The author gives a vote according to his judgment and this vote will be shown in search results like this:
To accomplish this, in YASR you have to select “yes” in reply to the question “Is this a review?” below the page editor, and give a vote using the yasr_overall_rating feature.
With AggregateRating, average rating is instead based on multiple ratings or reviews. When based on multiple ratings, stars will be shown like this:
With YASR, you can achieve this by using yasr_visitor_votes shortcode, and select “no” in reply to the question “Is this a review?”.
With Pro version your visitors can leave a review in the comment form: ratings will be indexed like this, based on your user reviews :
Wich itemTypes are supported?
YASR supports the following itemTypes:
- BlogPosting ✝
- Global identifiers
- Price Valid Until
- Price Valid Until
You will notice that if you select review and then test the page with Structured Data Testing Tool with some schema itemType (e.g., product) this warning will appear:
The aggregateRating field is recommended. Please provide a value if available.
After a lot of tests, I noticed that if both aggregateRating and review are in the same page, google will index it with aggregateRating.
So, you should just ignore that warning if you want to index your page as a review.

so far your plugin is wonderful and perfect for my blog! Thank you first at all.
I struggle with one detail in the recipe rich snippet. The time should be inserted with ISO 8601 format, I tired it so many times and just do not know what format to use. P1H?
Can you maybe support? So like for a recipe I need a time duration like 45 mins, or 1 hour 20 mins.
Thank you and regards from Germany.
So, if you need 1h and 20 min, use PT1H20M, or, to use 45min, just put PT45M
Hope this helps.
Thank you so much Dario.
I missed the T. Sure it will work now.
Thank you for your support and help.
Have a nice day, Madeline
Hi, I bought a lifetime yasr basic.
But it seems conflict with caching plugin (wp-rocket).
Hope you can consider and fix it soon.
I just tested here https://doithuong.com/tai-game-nhat-club-danh-bai-doi-thuong-nhat-uy-tin-nhat-xanh-chin/ and everything seems fine.
ratingCount updated from 164 to 165
Hi, if I use shortcode [yasr_overall_rating] there is no json microdata. Is it possible to add something to shortcode or in php to define proporties of object manually?
Hello Adam, sorry for the delay of this answer.
If you want to use microdata for [yasr_overall_rating] shortcode, you’ve to select “Review Rating” at this question in the setting:
Which rich snippet do you want to use?
Hi, wonderful plugin!
Is posible to deactivate rich snippets? I’m trying to apply ratings to pages that are neither products, places, recipes, blogs. Instead, they are something more similar to companies, or groups. I was thinking that maybe have a rich snippets that is not correct can be harmful for SEO.
Hello, sorry for the delay of this answer!
It’s not possible with a setting, we’ve to insert a little function in your child theme!
Is it ok for you?
Thank you for your answer!
We have a customised theme, so no child. So i think that I just should insert the function in the function.php file?
The problem is that everythime you’ll update the theme you’ll lost your changes!
Yes, true but the theme (not programmed by me) is a custom teme, so don’t know who will update it and when. Anyway, if I have to apply only some functions without a child theme, I use Code Snippets..
remove_filter( 'the_content', 'yasr_add_schema' );
I didn’t tested this but should work
Just buy Year Custom Rankings
Review Count with YASR is it?
Hello, thank you for your purchase!
I’m afraid I don’t understand the question, what do you mean?
I need to Review Count with YASR ( on the picture).
But I just bought( Yasr Custom Rankings) that can’t do it( picture).
So I can hope to have -Ratng:7.8/-2,659 reviews.
I have purchased plugin.
Do this? If Unable.
Can replace ?
I am not good at Engilish.
Hi, I just bought your plugin “Yasr Custom Rankings”. However, due to my poor English (I’m not a native speaker), I’m sorry I made a stupid mistake. Actually, what I wanted was “Review Count with YASR”. Is it possible to allow me apply for a change?
You can download the “Yasr User Review” extension in this link and clicking on “View Details and Downloads”
Thanks for your reply. But when I logged in My Purchase and go to “View Details and Downloads”, I didn’t see any download link of “Yasr User Review” or “Review Count with YASR”, what I only see is still the download link of “yasr-custom-rankings-0.0.8” only. Please check it again for me.
Can you try again now?
I have received. I’m learning to use, and thank you
