A WPSSO Core add-on to provide ratings and reviews for WordPress comments with aggregate rating meta tags, and optional Schema Review markup.

Extends the WordPress comment system with ratings and reviews — star ratings and reviews can be enabled / disabled by post type and/or individual posts, new reviews are correctly labeled as "reviews" (not "comments"), a rating can be required before reviews are accepted, replies to reviews are properly labeled as "replies", and colors of star ratings can be customized from the settings page.

Does not conflict with WooCommerce ratings and reviews — the WooCommerce plugin settings are checked, and if WooCommerce product reviews are enabled (or the Yotpo Reviews for Woocommerce plugin is active), the "product" post type is ignored to avoid conflicts with WooCommerce product reviews.

Provides Schema Aggregate Rating meta tags and JSON-LD markup — Google reads aggregate rating meta tags (or the optional Schema JSON-LD markup) to add star ratings to search results (WPSSO JSON Pro add-on required for JSON-LD markup). WooCommerce product ratings and reviews are also included in the aggregate rating meta tags and JSON-LD markup.

Includes complete Schema Review as optional JSON-LD markup — including information about the review (author name, creation time, excerpt, rating), along with the threaded replies / comments for each review (WPSSO JSON Pro add-on required for JSON-LD markup).

WPSSO Ratings and Reviews is incredibly fast and coded for performance — WPSSO Core and its add-ons make full use of all available caching techniques (persistent / non-persistent object and disk caching), and load only the PHP library files and object classes they need, keeping their code small, fast, and light. WPSSO Core and its add-ons are also fully tested and compatible with PHP v7.x (PHP v5.4 or better required).

WPSSO Core Plugin Prerequisite

WPSSO Ratings and Reviews (aka WPSSO RAR) is an add-on for the WPSSO Core plugin — which creates complete & accurate meta tags and Schema markup from your existing content for social sharing, Social Media Optimization (SMO), Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Google Rich Cards, Pinterest Rich Pins, etc.

The WPSSO Core Pro plugin and the WPSSO JSON Pro add-on are required to add the Schema Aggregate Rating and Schema Review as Schema JSON-LD markup.
