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».

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.

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.

Plugin is very simple in configuration and help to create very nice looking rating in short time. Just give it a try!

I tried them all. And in the end, Yasr was the best star plugin I have found. I also tried several schema markups plugins, and the most famous of them threw out erros. Not Yasr, it works perfectly with Google, and it looks beautiful on the frontend. Plus, the plugin author is also available to do customization work for you. That's what he did for me, making the rating appear only on selected categories, plus manually importing the stars from a previous plugin I was using. I can only highly recommend both this plugin, plus the author for customization work. Thank you, Dario!

I was searching for once decent review system for my blog posts. Not many visitors comment on your post but they can simply let know their poll via the star rating. Since I've added this to the post bottom, I can now frame how many of them read the whole post! Good job YASR team.
