Today mostly people use this star rating for their websites in Google search results.

So before going ahead I want to tell you something about Google crawling technique.

How Google Crawling Technique Work.?

Friends when you publish a new article on your website if that article is automatically fetched then it will take up to 3 days to show up in Google results but if you submit that article manually in Google Webmaster tool then it will be visible in Google search results in few minutes or in one day ( not tested manually ).

So whenever you publish an article and submit it into Google Webmaster tool the crawlers of Google crawl your webpage and save that webpage in their directory list.

Then if someone searches anything then your webpage will be searched in that directory list if it match's the user requirement or query then it will be shown in search.

So now let's talk about this star rating in in Google search results.

To add star rating in Google search results you need to have some knowledge about Google schema markup.

If you don't know about Google schema markup then you can go and search it on Google.

We can add this star rating into our blogger posts by using schema markup this schema markup is a JSON code that tells Google about particular item.

This schema markup is very much helpful for Google crawlers to understand what your article and what your website is about and many other things that's why most of the blogger templates or wordpress templates come up with schema markup.
