    Google Showing Stars for 3/4 Reviews

    Just noticed Google showing review stars for GMB listings with 3 and 4 reviews stars in both the 3-pack and the local finder. Anybody else seeing this?

    Just spotted it last night Eric when I was just explaining to a client that they needed 5 reviews to see the stars...nearly fell off my chair when I saw it!

    I just did a couple random searches and yep I'm seeing the stars for businesses with less than 5 reviews as well.

    From what I'm seeing, 3 is the new 5. Anyone with 1 or 2 reviews isn't showing the stars. Can you guys confirm that is what you're seeing too?

    Yes, looks like 3 is the new 5. Although I came across an exception where a 3 star had no stars. All 3 reviews were one stars so I am wondering if that's why the stars aren't showing?

    It appears to be showing for 1 and 2 reviews on some businesses here in the UK

    That said, it's not doing it for all:

    My query was 'Digital marketing agency Cornwall'. Rather confusing!
