    Exclamation Google Review Stars Back in the SERPs - Spotted in the Wild - Testing 123 Launch!

    YAY! Google review stars will be back in the SERPs very soon I predict, as Google just started testing.

    One of our new members, valesence, is sitting on a test server that is starting to show the red/orange review stars right in the SERPs and just shared screenshot below.

    We knew this day was coming, since Google started showing stars on the G+ Local pages recently,
    but if she's testing that means they will likely go live soon!

    Here is the original thread: Expected local search game changer is here

    None of us in the other thread are seeing stars yet . Please check and let us know if you see them.

    I discovered the big update back in 2010 and was the only one sitting on that test server that could see the update. I broke the story on Blumenthals blog on 7/5. That was pretty much the story that helped launch my career in local.

    Thanks so much valesence for sharing your discovery with us!

    Okay Linda wanted me to post this photo here but I accidentally reposted in the original thread again. Staring at a computer screen too long today. Here it is:

    Yay!

    I'm seeing stars for everything all of a sudden with Chrome. (Still not in FF.)

    Mike just reported some sitings of Stars in the Local Carousel too.
    First Sightings of Stars in the Carousel

    Italian Restaurants near San Diego - I'm seeing Carousel Stars in Chrome too.
    I think I'm getting giddy!

    Try Chrome and let us know if you see Stars!

    Sooo much better! Although the black and orange makes me think Halloween.

    Weigh in if you see stars!

    Not seeing stars yet in the DC area. btw: couldn't believe one pizza place that is to die for, had a 22 ranking in G+. those low rankers are NUTS.

    not seeing them in the carousel or for non carousel subjects. I suppose we'll see em later, though.

    Alas my Stars are all gone. So they are just still testing here and there.

    Don't worry I think it will roll out fairly soon.
