Display All Google Product Ratings

Hi Everyone

 

We sell office printers and would like to show customers all the product ratings Google has collected from all sources. This would be very useful for customers to see but is it allowed? Basically I want to show the stars with the option to view all, which would take the customer to one of these pages: https://www.google.co.uk/shopping/product/4489303483181978443?q=oki%20c532dn&prds=hsec:reviews

 

Is this allowed?

 

Thanks

 

Nick

Do you mean, to show the reviews on your website? If so, yes absolutely. However these reviews can also list competitor reviews. The product link can also change. So linking to this product might not be a great way to show reviews. Instead link the reviews directly from your site to the source of the review would be a much safer and trusted method.

 

Hope it helps.

Thanks for your reply. The problem is there are 1000's of items we sell so
if we only show our reviews (which we're not currently collecting) it means
that most items won't have any reviews on them. Even Google doesn't have
reviews for every item listed.

I thought that (if Google allowed it) they'd have a simple way to pull in
all the reviews they have for a unique GTIN. I appreciate that if the
customer clicked on the stars on our product page they'd see reviews
collected by our competitors too but that wouldn't be too bad as long as
there are no links to take customers away from us.

Cheers, Nick
