Possible to Show Google Reviews on site?

Hey All,

 

We currently have more Google reviews, than reviews left on our site. 

Therefore wondering if there is a way to include the Google reviews on our site?  Not just the Google trusted store badge that takes you away from the site in order to read the reviews. 

 

Thanks,

Sam

generally, merchants may not display any written or other elements, other
than as provided directly to the merchant by google or approved by google
in advance -- or is otherwise grounds for suspension or termination from
the google-trusted-stores program, at any time.

 

if the information is in any way associated with google-trusted stores, then
the best likely course would be to contact a google-trusted-stores support
specialist directly, before any such trusted-stores-associated or linked-review
integration is considered on the merchant-website --
https://support.google.com/trustedstoresmerchant/contactflow

 

otherwise, if the reviews are part of google my-business pages

then, the google-my-business (gmb) api may be used --
https://developers.google.com/my-business/
https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Google-My-Business-API/bd-p/gmb-api

 

of course, there may be plug-ins or extensions that already exist to handle
gmb-api integration, depending on the e-commerce or content-management
systems being used; in that case, the best likely course would be to contact
whoever is currently supporting those systems.

Hi Sam,

 

I know it's possible to show Google reviews on your website but I'm not 100% sure on the way to go about it.

 

Maybe the guys over at the Google My Business forum - https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Google-My-Business/ct-p/GMB

Or the Google Small Business forum - https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Google-Small-Business/ct-p/Google_Small_Business

could help.

However -- there is a legitimate, correct way to show reviews: directly in the ad itself, on the Google search network, using the "review extension".

 

imho this is a somewhat underutilized ad extension type, but a terrific capability. 

 

The review must be from a business or organization, vs an individual; 67 characters or less; published online (url); and manually pre-reviewed and approved by Google. 

 

Here is some more info:
