Social SEO Pro does also include a Star Rating system, which you can add to your content. 


The rating system does also include the Rich Snippet Rating Markup from schema.org. After an user rated your content, Google will add the rating markup to its Search Engine listings as shown in the image below:

Star Rating Settings


Within the Star Ratings Settings you have the ability to activate and add the rating system to all of your content, post types or specific posts. You always have the ability to customize these settings within the meta box for each content your create. The Star Rating System within SEO Booster Pro does support not only posts but also pages and all custom post types.


Placement

Within this option you can choose where to show the Rating Stars within your content. The options are:

  • Top Left
  • Top Right
  • Bottom Left
  • Bottom Right
  • Include in Social Buttons


Top means, that the Rating Stars will be displayed before the content. Bottom means after the content and "Include in Social Buttons" means that the Rating Stars will be displayed on the same position as the integrated Social Buttons. This is the settings we use here for the Knowledge Base Pages.


Animation

If you activate this box, the plugin will add an animation to display the Rating Stars.


Unique Rating

Here you can choose if an user can only rate a content one time or unlimited times. You also have the ability to choose whether the unique rating should be based on the user's IP address or on the user's Browser. If you don't activate this option, the user will be able to rate the same content as many times as he likes. If activated, the user will only be able to rate it one time.


Set Cookie

Within this option you can define the days for the Cookie. If you enter 30 as example, than the cookie will last for 30 days, which means that within these days the user will only be able to rate the content one time. After this time, the user will be able to rate the content again.


Flush Rating

Within this option you can reset the received ratings for your content. You can either do that fo a specific post or all posts, pages and custom post types. After you flushed the ratings, the Star rating system will be reset and doesn't show any ratings on the front end anymore.


Meat Box Settings

You also have the ability to customize all the above settings within the given meta box for each of your content.
