I mentioned this in the SERP changes thread, but there were some pretty helpful rich snippets for ex. software applications from many sites like the Android Market which included ratings, software icons and other details. These rich snippets now seem to have been disabled except for the star ratings.
Most of the time, I have found these rich snippets to be helpful, including the star ratings.
>> Try searching google for "IP lookup". Some of the IP lookup services have star ratings in the hundreds. Why on earth would an IP lookup service have ratings? LOL.
I only saw one, but the IP lookup service they are offering is a product and the votes seem to be real as my vote was counted immediately.
