Google announces new reports for review snippets in Search Console

Google recently announced the support for reviewing snippets in its Google Search Console. This change also includes new reports to help you find any issues with your implementation and monitor how their rich result type is improving your performance. They also provide a means by which you can use the Rich Results Test to review your existing URLs or debug your markup code before moving it to production.

According to Google, “a review snippet is a short excerpt of a review or a rating from a website, usually an average of the combined rating scores from many reviewers. This is one of the most used structured data types on the web, used by millions of web sites for many content types such as Book, Movie, Event, Product and more.”

When Google finds valid reviews or ratings markup, we may show a rich result that includes stars and another summary info. This rich result can appear directly on search results or as part of a Google Knowledge panel, as shown in the screenshots below.
