How to Get Gold Stars like in Adwords Express

Top Contributor

Does anyone know how to get the gold stars on an Adwords ad (from Google Plus Local reviews) without running Adwords Express?  I don't want to bid on the keywords/categories that Adwords Express has for my industry but I want the gold stars (http://support.google.com/adwords/express/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2481410).  I have tried adding local extensions and linking it to my Google Places account but it still doesn't show any reviews.

Hi Joy,

 

Are you referring to seller ratings?  http://support.google.com/adwords/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2375474

No, it's not seller ratings, it's the reviews from Google Places > http://support.google.com/adwords/express/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2481410

 

I want them on the ads because I know it will push the CTR through the roof.  However, I don't want to use Adwords Express because it's designed for people who don't want to manage their own account closely.

The goal is definitely sales/phone calls.  You summed up why I don't want to actually use Adwords Express.  I guess the answer s that there is no way to get those stars with regular Adwords.  Bummer.
