New Review Star Selector

For customers that wish to have more choice of the Star graphic we are adding a host of new star graphics to choose from the new Rating Library.

The new option will be available on the main dashboard allowing users to have more options for customizing the star images for matching the color schemes of their website.

This feature is being introduced now and will be live before the end of June.

PS. Another new item coming in early July are Testimonial Robot badges for customers to use on their websites.

Keeping your business website healthy

Our review widget is quite lightweight and loads asynchronously after the rest of the content has loaded. But many widgets, plugins and other items on your website can end up bloating it and increasing the page load times for your users.

If something is installed on your page and offers no value then consider removing or swapping with something that is value-added or adds value to the site.

Examples of non-value added:

  • Weather widget added to eCommerce website selling tech goods
  • Quote of the day widget added to Travel website
  • Twitter widget added to site that does not utilize their Twitter account

Testimonials and Reviews are key to many commercial websites today and offering extra bonuses like ratings in SERP results makes having a widget like ours invaluable for your business.

Being dynamic as well means that the SERP rating updates automatically with each new review that is added. So when Google next indexes your page your new rating will be applied.

Rich Snippets for Products / SEO

Where can I show Rich Snippets for my products?

Rich snippets will work on all pages except the Home page!

But if you have a product or service page and have some reviews then Rich Snippets is a great selling tool when combined with review ratings to show in your SERP result pages.

 

How OUR rich snippets show in SERP result pages…

trobotserpratings

Above you can see the results of our widget in creating the Rich snippet data in real time with the latest indexed copy of your page as stored by Google.

How the process works:

  1. Add our snippet to your product page
  2. Collect reviews with ratings from you customers or ask them to populate the Testimonial Robot widget form
  3. Use the Google Add Url to re-index your page or wait for Google to auto re-index
  4. Test that all is working as should be using site:www.yourdomain.com in Google

That’s it! But remember to allow Google time to re-index properly. It can take a week or two in some instances.

Now as new customers add new reviews for you, your SERP rating score and votes will increase automatically without having to update your web pages individually.

Super, isn’t it? Plus you don’t need to update your pages each time you have a new batch of reviews :)
