    I have reviews on several review sites, like yelp, google places, etc. but the stars are not showing up in the serps. Is there something special I have to do to get it to show, or google should pick them up automatically?

    Dude, just look at all the question threads you have created. Consider asking less and reading/working more.

    Read what you can about rich snippets. That is what you need on your site to show the stars in the SERPS.

    ok, I am reading about rich snippets and microdata, but this doesn't sound like what I am looking for.
    I am talking about the reviews that say "1400 reviews" and the 1400 is a link, and when you click on it, you are taken to the page where it shows all the reviews from different sites. if you dont know what I am talking about, google "cheap glasses"
    this rich snippets thing is kind of....I dont know the right word....if everybody could just put some code in their website to show 5 stars, wouldn't every single site on the internet give themselves 5 stars?

    I read it somewhere putting rating from your own in rich snippet is illegal and can penalized your site. Correct me if I am wrong

    I read the same thing somewhere too, and the guy's website did not come back up even after he removed the stars. that's why I dont want to take a risk.
