    I want a client to implement schema for ratings, but have no clue on what system they need to implement for their website where clients can leave a rating. I understand the entire concept of Schema and that all the ratings must be on-site, which means the client needs to implement a rating system on their website. Are there any articles etc where I can read up on this?

    They are two separate problems: 1) Install a ratings system and 2) Mark the ratings up with schema metadata. Looks like your issue right now is having a reviews/ratings system in place, because the schema.org markup is very simple thing to add. What language are you using? PHP? Is it Wordpress?

    Its a simple PHP site. The markup is easy to implement, its the rating/review system that I'm trying to implement.

    So if your shouldn't inherently have reviews on it, like a review site might, you will likely lose the stars in the SERPs. Which is basically the whole point. I have found that if you rotate the reviews via a slider, rotate them out regularly OR and best of all, load a new one or set on each page load, they will stick. This will require some custom coding, but works. Good luck.
