I don't want to hijack this thread on Google Reviews, so I am starting a new one.
I know some types of businesses are more likely to have stars and even reviews show up in their organic results listings -- restaurants and hotels, for example -- but other types of businesses also have them sometimes. For example, your "local SEO" listing seems to have that:
local-seo.jpg though as Linda says here, the stars come and go.
In any case, it would be great to discuss some of the ways to make this more likely. Are 'rich snippets' working for anyone outside of restaurants and hotels? Do others see this occasionally as Linda does for her site?
Does anyone "see stars" for real estate sites or for fishing captains -- two themes that are close to my clients hearts.
