Yasr – Yet Another Stars Rating


Improving the user experience (UX) with your website is a top priority for everyone who cares about their online activity,
as it promotes familiarity and loyalty with your brand, and enhances visibility of your activity.

Yasr – Yet Another Stars Rating es un modo potente de añadir reseñas y recomendaciones amigables con el SEO a las entradas de tu web y CPT, sin afectar a su velocidad.

Cómo usarlo

Reviewer Vote

With the classic editor, when you create or update a page or a post, a box (metabox) will be available in the upper right corner where you’ll
be able to insert the overall rating.
With the new Guteneberg editor, just click on the «+» icon to add a block and search for Yasr Overall Rating.
You can either place the overall rating automatically at the beginning or the end of a post (look in «Settings»
-> «Yet Another Stars Rating: Settings»), or wherever you want in the page using the shortcode [yasr_overall_rating] (easily added through the visual editor).

Votos de visitantes

You can give your users the ability to vote, pasting the shortcode [yasr_visitor_votes] where you want the stars to appear.
If you’re using the new Gutenberg editor, just click on the «+» icon to add a block and search for Yasr Visitor Votes
Again, this can be placed automatically at the beginning or the end of each post; the option is in «Settings» -> «Yet Another Stars Rating: Settings».

Multi Set

Multisets give the opportunity to score different aspects for each review: for example, if you’re reviewing a videogame, you can create the aspects «Graphics»,
«Gameplay», «Story», etc.

What is «Ranking reviews» ?

It is the 10 highest rated item chart by reviewer. In order to insert it into a post or page, just paste this shortcode [yasr_top_ten_highest_rated]

Wht is «Users’ ranking» ?

This is 2 charts in 1. Infact, this chart shows both the most rated posts/pages or the highest rated posts/pages.
For an item to appear in this chart, it has to be rated twice at least.
Paste this shortcode to make it appear where you want [yasr_most_or_highest_rated_posts]

What is «Most active reviewers» ?

If in your site there are more than 1 person writing reviews, this chart will show the 5 most active reviewers. Shortcode is [yasr_top_5_reviewers]

What is «Most active users» ?

When a visitor (logged in or not) rates a post/page, his rating is stored in the database. This chart will show the 10 most active users, displaying the login name if logged in or «Anonymous» otherwise. The shortcode : [yasr_top_ten_active_users]

Demo page for Rankings

Wait, wait! Do I need to keep in mind all this shortcode?

If you’re using the new Gutenberg editor, you don’t need at all: just use the blocks.
If, instead, you’re using the classic editor, in the visual tab just click the «Yasr Shortcode» button above the editor

Does it work with caching plugins?

Most def! Yasr supports these caching plugins:
* Wp Super Cache
* LiteSpeed Cache
* Wp Fastest Cache
* Wp Rocket

Why I don’t see stars in google?

Please be sure that if you use mostly the «yasr_visitor_votes» shortcode, you’ve to select «Aggregate Rating» to the question «Which rich snippet do you want to use?» in the General Settings.
If, instead, your website use mostly the «yasr_overall_rating» shortcode, you’ve to select «Review Rating».
Google will need some days to index the stars.
You can use the Structured Data Testing Tool to validate your page.
If you set up everythings fine, in 99% of cases your stars will appear in a week.
If doesn’t, it’s suggested to ask in a SEO oriented forum.
