    Hi, I have been trying to get the aggregateRating stars to appear in serp results for my money site but with no luck. The code itself is correct (checked with webmasters tools). The stars show for many of my competitors' sites, so I assume that Google has a way of allowing some to appear, while block the others. Do they have a certain algorithm for that as well? I have even tried ordering a few authority links to my site, but that didn't help either. Anyone has any ideas on how to make them show?

    Google seems to be very selective about who can use the stars and who cannot. I have a number of projects (older ones) that got them but most of my projects never get the stars "approved". With "approved" I mean, that they never appear. So far I've gotten the impression that your website has to be a real authority in its niche in order to get them, might be wrong with that though.

    By authority you mean that it should be there long enough, or just have many other high PR sites linking to it?
