Question on seller ratings

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I wonder if someone could confirm for me if Google will count it's own Google+ reviews to show seller ratings on Adwords?

 

We are creating a plan to increase customer enagement on our Google+ page and this will include encouraging leaving reviews. We do not use any other review platform and want to achieve seller ratings - would this be possible just via Google+ or do we need to look at implementing a 3rd party platform too?

Hi HelsBells,

I stand to correction on this but to my understanding, your google plus will only affect social annotations. And not seller ratings.

You can find a list of sites that would affect your seller rating here:

As you can see, google + is not a part of that list.

Perhaps look into google trusted stores.

Hope this helps

If you use only AdWords express, Google will use reviews from Google+.

Thank you Clynton M and Ahmed Ali.

Clynton, I have looked briefly through the list you provided and the ones I looked at appear to be review sites that charge a monthly fee. Are there any free review aggregation sites??

Trusted stores are only for Ecommerce website aren't they? Our business does not sell online as we provide a service not products.
