  2. Actually, I am working on my website very hard to get sharp results, but so far no improvement, but I have learned a lot from this page, and hope it will help us to grow.

    I am working for my client to improve in SERP results and Schema Markup is definitely gonna help me. I would like to ask one thing that these schema markups will help with Open Graph results as well. I Have Just Setup “All In One Schema Rich Snippets” Plugin on my website. But I have a doubt on how to make sure Google is picking up the correct aggregated reviews as in schema markup the reviews are hard coded.

    My quick questions are; how to make sure that the reviews are true for local business? How much time does it take to show up rich snippets for my search results? Anyways, thanks for sharing schema Markup will definitely help my business.
