    Return of 5-Star Ratings to Google+ Local Pages

    It looks like in the last few hours Google got rid of the last vestiges of the 30/30 "Zagat" review scale, and brought us back to the good old 5-star scale.

    The 5 stars had been showing up if you navigated to a Google+ Local page through the "new" Maps, but now it's rolled out completely.

    More detail here

    Sure thing, Linda. I've just added some pics of where the Zagat ratings still do show up and where they no longer do.

    I'll raise my glass to this one.

    Bumping this for those that missed it last night because it kind of got buried under all the other posts.

    Re: Return of 5-Star Ratings to Google+ Local Pages

    Any examples of 5-star rating showing up in the search results as well as the individual google local pages? So far Im only seeing them on the GL pages for medical/dental queries

    @Stefano

    Nope, the 5 stars aren't showing up in the Google+ Local search results (yet?). But they're showing up across the board on Google+ Local pages that have more than 5 stars. I covered all this stuff in the post, as you may have seen.
