Google is certainly encouraging the use of microdata in general. Pretty sure I know where they stand on fake reviews. But they have lots of data, and I suspect that after a while patterns will emerge
True. But how will they be able to determine that the 2,000 votes showing in the snippet are fake? People have to visit the site then vote. If a real visitor generated the vote, then it might be hard to deem it a fake. Apparently for this site, they have had 2,000+ people vote. I honestly don't understand how this thing works, so I am just thinking out loud. I am tempted to add it, if there is a way to do it legitimately (i.e., let my visitors cast an honest rating for my site). Can't be any different than votes being cast on Amazon.
