In the latest version of our ajax voting plugin for your Joomla articles , v 2.5.4, we are allowing you to add Google's Rich Snippets to your star ratings.
If you turn this feature ON, you will eventually have Google to display ratings in search results pages.
You need to have your article or product page properly tagged according to Google Structured Data. Basically, your Article or Product needs to have some Schema.org markup supporting the aggregateRating property.
For example, your page should have the following structure:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product">
<span itemprop="name">Name of your Product</span>
-- Extra Vote somewhere in here --
If you want to upgrade, you can unistall the plugin without worrying about loosing your votes because your database table won't be erased.
