Effects.

Rich Snippets.
Only when the sidebar block is shown on your homepage can you activate this option as it will add a little snippet markup to the sidebar and this markup may only be shown on the homepage, so if the sidebar is not on your homepage, please do not use this Rich Snippet option but use the Rich Snippets from the Homepage block. Also, do not use this option when you use the Homepage widget.

Enable the homepage block to show the shop reviews and product reviews to encourage attention to the reviews. There is a big theme and a small theme. Only with the big theme can you show a few shop reviews and product reviews. The small widget will show your shop review results and will also generate the Rich Snippets.

You can add the homepage widget to your CMS homepage by adding the following code without the spaces between the {{ and }}
{ {block type="shopreview/widget" name="shopreviewwidget"} }

Note: 
make sure you do not use the rich snippet option from the sidebar when you are using the homepage widget.
