To show collected reviews on your website, you will need to install one or more of our fully-customisable review badges and widgets.  We have widgets allowing you to display Company Reviews, Product Reviews and Local Reviews. You're also able to install code on your site which lets Google read your reviews and include them in organic search listings on the web.

Overview

Review widgets serve a number of purposes.  By displaying reviews you have collected on your website, visitors and browsers are able to see evidence of your service and trustworthiness by reading about past experiences of other customers.

You have the option to display reviews about your company as a whole, the products you sell and any other locally sourced reviews.

Company review badges generally included comments about your service, delivery and prices, while product review badges contain detailed information about the products you sell, such as suitability, durability, size and fit or any other information that your customers may wish to include.   Local review badges are generally company reviews that have been sourced from websites such as Google Local (maps) or Facebook, and can be included alongside company reviews collected on your Reviews.io company page.

You can access all review badges and widgets from one page, using filters to narrow down your requirements.  Simply check the boxes for they type of widget and you'll be shown the appropriate results.
