Local businesses with ratings from Google users can now get ratings stars shown in their search ads along with location extensions.
Businesses with location extensions enabled in AdWords through Google My Business are eligible to have ratings appear in their ads on desktop and tablet search results. (It’s interesting to see this not only isn’t starting on mobile like many recent AdWords updates, but that mobile isn’t even included, yet.)
If you already have your AdWords account linked to your Google My Business account and location extensions enabled in your campaigns, you don’t need to take any further action for your ads to be eligible.
