    Just checked with Moz’s googlebot, and Google does not see any of the reviews. This is a major major problem for seo. So much so that the Rich snippet plugin is probably not the solution I am looking for.

    May have to try the hreviews plugin now.

    Ideally, the reviews should be done similar to the hreviews plugin at the end of the post.

    Just to clarify this is for the aggregate reviews only. The other settings are fine.

    Is Moz’s Googlebot one of the pro features?

    I have to point out that our only reference should be Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool, not any other service.

    Hi, no it is a free toolbar addon. All it does is render a web page how Google would see it. Having a review plugin that Google can’t see the reviews of is fundamentally wrong. It is like hiding most of your page off the search engines.

    HI,

    Maybe I was wrong, and that Moz tool is not the best one to use. Been looking into this and:
    http://www.webconfs.com/search-engine-spider-simulator.php
    Seems to show that the text of the reviews will be crawled.

    I am still looking into it, so will let you know if I find anything different. The only thing I have noticed though, is that the reviews on that simulator show above the main content of the page.

    But the functionality of your aggregate review is pretty awesome, the more i look into it. The only thing I would like to see is some kind of pagination \ load more reviews for when you have alot of reviews – http://demo.authorhreview.com/richsnippets/product-aggregate/#user_reviews

    I see, but I just think we should stick with the Structured Data Testing Tool, which is designed especially for this.

    I’ve tried the Moz add-on, not sure if it’s useful in our case!
