    Give this a read:

    I've never done it myself, but this goes over the basics of marking up your content to match review markup specs.

    Rich snippets.
    If you're using WordPress, you can use GD Star Rating plugin. It has this feature.
    I added it on a new WordPress installation and the stars in SERPs were showing up within a day.

    Another wordpress plugin with rich snippets feature is SEO Ultimate. There are premium plugins too, one of which you can find here in the Member Downloads section. But can't say how good they work.

    Also note that it may not be so fast every time. My domain is a little old with PR and already ranks 3-4 for the main keyword without any content. So may be that's why I got the stars quickly.
    Some times it may take ages or may not show up ever.

    Hmm thanks for that, I am using XSitePro and don't want to risk the ranking change by switching but will try to do it some other way.

    I'll give someone $10 Paypal if they can show me how to properly add this to my XSitePro site.

    Hmm, I'm didn't realize it was is easy to add stars to your review type sites. I'm going to implement this to my sites now. Thanks for the thread!
