How To Rate An Article? How To Tell Google That An Article Is Reviewed? Or in Indonesian it should be Gimana Cara Membuat Dan Memberi Rating Bintang Pada Artikel? Well, now i wanna tell you how to add a rating to your articles. Sure you know what is a rating, right? A rated article would show a line of 5/10 stars on Google search result page, where some or all of the stars are marked yellow, depend on the rating given.

Some people said that this will make senses on Seo, but i don't know the truth. I mean, i can't give you any assurance that it will certainly make senses. But i think, that's fine to give it try, isn't?.

Well let's just get down. Follow the below instruction to add a rating to your articles.

1. First of all, before going any further, make sure you have an account on Google+, and verified/connected your blog already. If you haven't, then take a look here for your guidance: How To Verify Authorship To Google?

2. You have connected your blog to Google+ already, right? Now login to your blogger > Setting > Edit HTML > Check the "Expand widget Template" box. Don't forget to backUp/download your template for anticipation.

3. Find the <body> tag in your template and put the code below after it:

<div><div itemscope='' itemtype=''>

4. Find the closing </body> tag and put the code below right above that tag:


5. Find the Html code for your post title. This could be H1, H2, or H3. Veil the code with the following:

<span itemprop='itemreviewed'><span itemprop='description'></span></span>

Here is an example:

<b:if cond='data:post.title'>
<span itemprop='itemreviewed'>
<span itemprop='description'>
<h1 class='post-title entry-title'>
<b:if cond=''>
<a expr:href=''><data:post.title/></a>
<b:if cond='data:post.url'>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'><data:post.title/></a>

6. Find the Html code for author data, it generally looks like the following: <span class='fn'><></span>, and then veil it with the below code:

<span itemprop='reviewer'></span>

Here is an example:

<span class='fn'><span itemprop='reviewer'> <></span></span>

7. Save your template.

8. Last step, include the following code in your article anytime you publish a new one:

<span itemprop="rating">4.5</span>

No matter if you put it in the first, middle, or in the last article. The only thing to remember is that it must be there.

That's all. Just make sure that the code is extracted properly by Google. Go to Google's rich snippet tool to check it.

Have a nice day everybody. :)
