Microdata for multiple reviews

Msg#: 4604843 posted 9:38 pm on Aug 25, 2013 (gmt 0)

I have products with multiple reviews on a single page that I'm trying to add microdata to. I've managed to get the average rating and number of reviews listed so it shows the stars using the structured data testing tool. Is this good enough or should I go further and create microdata for each of the reviews on the page? I don't see a point in doing that unless doing so would result in Google being able to display one specific review from the page in it's results. For example, if I had 10 reviews on a page would Google be able to list 10 different results in the index depending on the search query? Such as someone searching by author name or actual review text? If Search engines can do this I'll definitely add review schema for each review on the page.

I think I would "code for the future" and not have to redo later as Google develops or changes the way they do things, so personally, I'd probably code it all and be done with it now rather than wishing I had and having to go back to recode later.

I've found it's almost always faster and easier to just code it in when I'm initially coding rather than digging through old code to add things later on.

I agree. I was just wondering how Google currently treats multiple reviews on a single page using microdata. I guess I will just have to code it and see what happens. I did do a little research today. I searched by name of reviewer and "reviews". Many Amazon reviews came up but they were all single page reviews as opposed to multiple reviews per page.
