    I don't unfortunately. Presumably there's a way to do it without a wordpress site?

    Thanks. That gives quite a it of info. I'm still not getting it though. By the sounds of it, i just need to put the following info into the page and it will give me the star rating:

    <div itemprop="aggregateRating" itemscope=""
    itemtype="http://schema.org/AggregateRating"><span
    itemprop="ratingValue">
    4.5
    </span> stars - based on <span
    itemprop="reviewCount">
    152
    </span> reviews </div>

    What i don't understand though is how i actually get the reviews?

    1. Customers rate your products (plugins or self made code)
    2. You save that in your database
    3. You put the rich snippets on your product page
    4. GG crawls your page
    5. You wait
    6. You wait
    7. Your SERP have stars
    7. Enjoy

    That's down to the relationship you have with your clients mate so you can either;

    1; Cheat by using minuteworkers (or other) and pay $0.50 a review
    2; Offer a reward to your real customers i.e discounts
    3; Gamification rewards
    4: Ask your friends and family (cheat)
