Your Homepage - 'Carousel Widget'

One of the most important places where your customers are going to see your reviews, is your Homepage. Ideally, you would want all of your reviews, whether they be company, product, and/or 3rd party to appear here. Our 'Carousel' Widget range displays all of your reviews and is able to be customized to stay on-brand with the rest of the site.

Your Product Pages - 'Product Reviews Widget'

The Product Reviews widget is our latest product review publishing tool for your product pages. If you were looking to display all of your reviews for a particular product, with color customization, filters and more, then we recommend this.

Note: You are able to display all types of reviews in this widget, including Company and Third Party.

For a full list of customization options see here. Further, this widget also includes rich snippet data for your organic stars in search engine page results.

Your Category Pages & Product Pages - Product Rating Snippet

The product rating snippet is an essential piece of review publishing. Customers are able to see the overall rating and total number of reviews when skimming through your product catalogue or looking at your product pages.

On Product Pages:

Your Product Pages - Review Nuggets

Nuggets allow you to show off your positive reviews in quick and simple options, like you can see here 👇

Simply highlight your client's most positive reviews and pick and choose what catches your future customers' eyes 👀

All Pages - 'Floating Widget'

One of our most dynamic options for your website would be our Floating widget. We offer both an option for a side version and a bottom version.

These can be added to all of the pages of your website and with an automatically updating widget editor, they are fully customizable at all times.

Here are some great examples of our clients using them:

This feature allows full customization with an inbuilt widget customizer with multiple designs as well as a gallery where you can pick and choose the photos that you use on the widget itself.

Note: This feature does come at an additional cost to your Reviews.io plan. Feel free to jump into our LiveChat to talk to a specialist and ask.

All Pages - 'Rating Bar Widget'

Our Rating Bar Widget allows you to display an overall star rating of both a specific type of review or all of your reviews. This can be added to either the top or bottom of your website to allow an overall score of your reviews to display to your clients while going through your store.

The widget can display in a variety of ways as you can see below:
