    Hey everyone,
    Anyone suffered from rich snippets penalty and managed to fix it?
    I'm talking about non-manual penalty, but more likely algo penalty.

    It just seems like since last update Jun 24/25, I lost all the rich snippets on my website, like products and reviews rating.
    Wierd thing is, that other site of mine which use same schema markup/theme/plugins/settings, didn't lose the stars rating.

    Did it happen to you? Did you manage to fix this penalty in the past?

    What are you talking about?
    I'm talking about rich snippet, like stars rating and product reviews.
    How the hell this connects with links?

    It's connected because rich snippets are correlated to the "quality" of your website. A brand new website will never have rich snippets displayed on Google search until Google believes the website is not spammy aka has good content and backlinks.

    Well, I actually got some very good PBN links in the last month, and my rankings skyrocketed.
    So I'm pretty sure it isn't the case.

    I think I have the same issues as well. The rich snippets still show when searching site:sitedomain.com, but not in search queries.

    Do you figure out the solution? I check the structure data but everything seems to be OK and same with my other sites.

    Few weeks back one of my personal client got manual penalty for using rich snippets, after removing this plugin & submitting reconsideration request penalty removed. If you need any help PM your site details i will check & suggest whether you can use ratings plugin or not.

    Quick Note: If you are reviewing single product then you can use rating plugin suppose if you got multiple products on single page then you are not suppose to use.

    Hope this would be helpful :)

    True this.

    I saw in some niches where Top 10 pages have stars, not a good idea to do that.
