How To Get Google Review Stars For Your WordPress Website

How To Get Google Review Stars For Your WordPress Website

Welcome back to another video my name is Adam
from where I make videos for non-tech and a ministry something really cool
in this video you might have authorities seen this before and thought how do I get that
in what I want to talk about is getting those reviews stars when someone does a Google search
and it should Google will show up page on your website how to get those review stars
and the reason you want to do this because really makes your website result in Google
stand out let me show you what I’m talking about so here I am on Google and I did a search
for how to create an online course membership website with WordPress and the reason I entered
that in this because I knew I would show up for this so when you scroll down these first
three results are advertisements you can see right here the advertisement has
those review stores at this right here and just when you first look at it you can immediately
see that the listing for the paid advertisements just stands out more it’s a
different color your eyes are just drawn to it now and you scroll down a little bit here
is my little website and you can see I have those same review stars right there and you
can see when you scroll down on the rest of this page no one else has that but me and
Linda and in this video I want to talk about how you can get those review stars for your
website so if you’re doing reviews for different products or services or maybe if you just
have a review page on your website for your business and you would like to have those
review site stars show so Francis if you are a local sandwich shop of some type the name
of your business and the word review you would wanted to show your review page on your website
and have those star ratings show so this is what I want to show you how to do in this
video now it’s pretty simple it’s this new code that you need to add your website called
schema that Google has and they have for recipes for events for all kinds of different purposes
they have these different schema types and it’s just some code that’s inserted into your
website now a lot of times your WordPress theme might actually have this functionality
built into it and you can definitely use that if you want for me on my side I use this plug-in
right now but I’m good to stop using it soon and it’s very expensive I bought this when
there really was a lot of solutions for it and now there’s a lot more solutions out there
I think I paid $400 which is crazy but it’s been good and this is probably the most advanced
solution but honestly some free options and a better paid option that’s a lot less expensive
and here is one of the plug-ins I want to talk about is called WP review and it’s developed
by my theme and they have a bunch of different free plug-ins that they have
made available and it’s a very popular free plug-in right here it’s already active on
over 80,000 different websites and the free version of this gives you so many features
that it’s great but they also have a paid version I felt like it when a developer has
a free version that isn’t totally crippled most of the time they’re just so crippled
and worthless but the version that my theme shop has for free is full-featured it’s got
a ton of features in it and is totally usable and what I like about it is that there is
an upgrade path so if you want more features if you want more features you can purchase
the Pro version and you can easily upgrade to it you don’t have to start all over with
your reviews and things like that so it’s called my review Pro now here is some of the
things I like about this solution over what I am currently using first of all they have
a more compact review style where the review doesn’t take up as much space and it’s a lot
more compact I really like that but I don’t like the size of the review solution I have
it’s just too big it takes up too much space I rather have a more compact view number two
it allows you if you have a blog and you have your featured images showing on your blog
and next page it will actually show your review rating on the top of your featured image so
like when you’re on my website and you’re here I can show the reviews stars right here
so it might kind of draw your eyes more to the review by seeing a kind of a glimpse at
what’s in a be inside by just having a little overlay right there on my featured images
and I really like that about it as well that something that my solution right now does
not do the solution is a very flexible it allows you to choose your color scheme and
even if you wanted to change your color scheme on a specific review it allows you to do that
it also allows you to Place the review box wherever you wanted to be at the top it could
be at the middle at the bottom and it can be wherever you want to place it via a short
code and I really like the flexibility that it has there so anyways let me just actually
show you the plug-in right now right here I’m in a WordPress installation that I use
for testing and I’ve already installed the plug-in and right off the bat what I like
about it is it didn’t add a whole new menu item I hate when plug-ins do that when it
should be maybe in the settings or the tools are underneath appearance and so this one
is under settings and it’s what it adds right here WP review Pro I got the Pro installed
right now however if you have the free one which is a WP review right there and it gives
you these the papers and give you these extra options that I really like one of them was
the ad total ratings to the thumbnails I really like that another thing that’s really neat
about it is it allows you to let the visitors of your website review it as well and I really
like that because of two reasons number one it’s going to send some kind of a social signal
to Google that this is a very highly relevant article and they should show to more people
when they’re searching for something related to that topic it’s those social signals that
really tell Google what is relevant content and if you allow people to come to your site
and review the products on your site that you’re reviewing it just is going to boost
those social signals and you can allow them to leave comments in their own reviews I really
like that about it and it does the full integration your full style and control in this is something
that I really like and I think a minute enjoy using once I migrate all my data to this review
plug-in and here are some your defaults where you want to have the review placed and the
different schema this is something that the paid version gives you over the free version
is these various schema types member I was saying there was a Vincent and recipes will
there’s actually a lot there’s book game movie the list goes on and on a restaurant review
there is all that so for example if you wanted to have a website directory that you had listings
for restaurants and you wanted people to come to the sightly review similar to yelp you
can use a plug-in like this to give people those options when they come to your website
and on and on and one of things I really like about this plug-in is the paid version of
it is like dirt cheap right now it says $39 but I think they’re always having discounts
on it where you might be of the get it for less than $30 and you can use this plug-in
on his many sites as you want two use so this is an excellent plug-in if you want to add
review functionality to your website and you want to get those review stars in Google that
you see right here which will increase the click through from Google to your website

I really appreciated and I do it just for you


  1. It's one of the search spam tactics. If your website doesn't have real reviews google will disable it for your website completely. This happened last week when agency I'm working with got email from google about that.

  2. Very nice video Adam.
    Just one question: I dont see any review tab on your site/posts where users can post their reviews but you still get those stars on the site.
    How to get those stars without just showing that ugly review box on the front end of the site?

  3. Cheers for the video mate. Not sure if it's been mentioned, but is there a way to add google review stars within search results? Thanks

  4. It looks like WP Review has doubled their price since you have posted this video. I just installed their free version, looks a little plain, so it may take a few days-weeks for ratings to start showing; It does look better then most rating plugins I have run across, maybe the pro version will look more impressive then what the free version has to offer; have to love those stars…

  5. A great video for getting the review stars coming up on the google search result 5 star


    I want to put my google reviews rich snippets on my website which is not a wordpress website, rather a html php website & also If anyone clicks on reviews it takes to testimonial page

  7. Hello, is there a way to only show the star reviews in the serp results for my homepage and not inside the actual homepage content with the WP Reveiw plugin?

  8. Is it correct you can review the blogpost or article by yourself? You do not have to get reviews from customers? I am really confused about that 😉

  9. Adam ruins everything. Haha JK Adam builds everything. Your voice does sound like Adam Conover's btw! Maybe you're related.

  10. great video adam as always
    may i ask if visitors make the site rating goes down, can we remove the code and google will reflect it immidately and no longer show the rating? i.e. 1 star
