Google Technical Guidelines for Review Snippet state:

Don't aggregate reviews from other websites.

Should I understand here that they do not want third party content here ? Like the former Facebook reviews. Are Google reviews themselves ok? Or this is only intended to be used on websites that have their own review system.

Context: a local business website.

  • Correct me if I am wrong, basically this page states that reviews are not taken into account if they are about the current site to avoid self serving. I don't find mention of other websites on this page though.

  • Sorry, I was referring to the article you originally linked to that says Don't aggregate reviews from other websites. That article had a link to the blog post as to "self serving" aspect.
