  • Rating: Star rating of the product as was specified by the reviewer.
  • Status: Review publication status (Published = The review is available online; Pending = The review is on moderation, and the administrator has yet to approve the review for publication or to reject it).
  • Date: Date on which the review was submitted.
  • SEO (This column is provided only on the Reviews tab of the product information page): Whether the review should be included into the rich snippet shown for the page of the product when the page appears in search results by Google and other major search engines. More info:
