Is this Spam? Website is using "Star Rating Rich Snippet" not correctly 1 Recommended Answer 2 Replies 0 Upvotes

Hello,

two websites I'm monitoring are displaying incorrect Star Ratings in Google search, in my opinion. As you can see in the screenshot, the pages simply showing the rating of their app on all pages. That's 100s of thousands of URLs with nice 4.4 rating. But the pages themselves have nothing to do with the rating. You can't give a rating on the pages either. Just at the bottom of the page there is an info that u can download the app and that they have a nice rating in the store.

For my understanding this is "spam" or wrong usage of the structured data. Or am I just not brazen enough? ;) Because in my eyes this can lead to increase in CTR...

Thanks for the answer!
I reported these websites last week. And one of them already around 4 Weeks ago. No news yet and they still have the "rich result" for all landing pages.

So... I guess I need patience and maybe report them again.

Other than that: Anyone has feelings about this? Maybe it is "okay" to do this. Because than I also could do it with my website, theoretically.
