Making Google Happy! Or Not!

Last Update: October 27, 2014

Sometimes when you think you just get one thing sorted out another one pops up.

So I finally figured out how to set up my Customer Star Rating option for visitors to rate the product or just the article. They appear right at the bottom of the page. Now none of these have been checked by me, I just thought that would be the wrong way to approach it and still do.

So now if I go to Google Webmaster Tools, the ones that Google has crawled so far are being recognized as errors, if you can believe that.

So far I have 17 that are showing as errors, not sure if I should just go and rate them myself or not, didn't seem like a good idea to me.

Any opinions on this....would sure like some feedback.

Here is a page example so you know what I mean: (Donna rated the stars after I posted this by they way, nothing like things in motion...Lol)

Basically it is the 5 star rating you hover over to rate a product or article. So Google decided since there is not rating yet that its an error...until I get ratings I would think.

Thank you everyone, hope you all had a great day.

Great job. This is the first time I've posted a note an not had an error message, where i attempt to resubmit and it tells me that comment has already been received. Wonder why that was.

Love your signature! On topic, this is a bit over my head, but it sounds sort of like comments. Were the stars supposed to improve your rating with Google? Do comments help too?

No clue what you're talking about ;-/ but would love to understand. Sounds like this could be a good thing for your site (well, not the errors part), but the overall system. When you get a chance, I'd love a training on it!

You know the five stars to rate a product and you hover over them to give it a 1-5 rating for that product....no one has given a rating yet and Google thinks that is an error...Lol...

Oh, oh! Cool! You can get that rating set up for your website?
So, people have been to your website, read through it, but not rated?

Yes, but I just added the star rating, so it has been passed by because it wasn't there when everyone left comments..Lol. It's there now, its a WP Plugin that I used. This page shows it probably the best.
