I have had Review/AggregateReview schema on my site for a while and got the little stars on SERPs for a while. At the same time, I had Event schema on the same pages. I noticed that Google would display the stars for the Reviews, but not the Event rich snippets in the SERPs. Among my competitors, I couldn't find any that had, in their SERPs, BOTH stars AND rich snippet event listings, so I started to think that you could have one or the other, but not both. Now that the stars don't appear any more, the Review schema isn't too useful and I was hoping that my event schema would start showing rich snippets in the SERPs -- but they haven't. I've run the pages through the structured testing tool and they produce some warnings but no errors.

If it is true that some part of Google's algorithm that limits the SERP results to display one schema feature but not two, then should I remove my Review/AggregateReview schema in order to get my Event schema to display?

There are several ongoing discussions of this topic, but not many in this part of the forum because this forum was only made to welcome the new users from the old SEOChat [webmasterworld.com] forum ;)

Try looking in the Google SEO forum and you will find more:

Or try our Search - "Review Schema" turns up a lot of results.
