  • Paul Beresford: Cheers for the update Alan Bleiweiss, I will most definitely check that link out.
  • Alan Bleiweiss: Paul, I just saw this one. I need to add a caution: You CAN copy that review to your site, however if you do, Google specifically states that you should NOT wrap your site`s copy in Schema markup for reviews.
  • Paul Beresford: Thanks for the information guys.
  • David Kutcher: Sure, just cite the original source

  • Patty Mantaloons: I did this very thing today on an insurance site. As Alan recommended, don`t use schema. I recommend that you use blockquote and cite elements, though.
  • Blake Aylott: Depending on the site you should also add it to a relevant service or product page as well. It adds credibility to the service or product.
