WP Google Review Slider

Description

A great way to boost your customer confidence and increase SEO! You work hard for your 5 star business Google reviews, now you can easily display them on your WordPress site! Put your Google reviews in a slider (or responsive grid) in your widget areas or directly on the post! Google limits the number of reviews you can pull from them to 5, but unlike similar plugins, this one can automatically check for new Google reviews every day and add them!

Feature List:

  • Create a really cool slider. Sort of like an image slider, but with your Google Places reviews.
  • Not in to sliders? Then display Google reviews in a responsive grid or list.
  • Choose to display only high rating reviews.
  • Download your Google Places reviews and save them in your database.
  • Create multiple templates to use on your Posts, Pages, & Widget areas.
  • Display the Google reviews using a shortcode, template function, or use a widget.
  • Template display options like: show/hide star rating, show/hide date, border radius, background and text colors.
  • Choose how many Google Places reviews to display per a row and even have multiple rows.
  • Sort them by date or show them randomly.
  • Use custom CSS if you like.
  • Hide Google reviews that do not include text.

Upgrade to Pro for More Features:

  • Customer support via email and a forum.
  • More Review Template styles!
  • Download your Yelp and Facebook reviews as well. Even add reviews manually.
  • Hide certain reviews from displaying. Sometimes even 5 star reviews should be hidden.
  • Trim long reviews and add a read more link.
  • Add the google icon and link to your Google Places page.
  • Download all your reviews in CSV format to your computer.
  • Advanced slider controls like: Autoplay, slide animation direction, hide navigation arrows and dots, adjust slider height for each slide.
  • Change the minimum rating of the reviews to display. Allows you to hide low rating reviews.
  • Hide short or long reviews based on word count.
  • Only display reviews of a certain type (Facebook, Yelp, Google, Manually input).
  • Pick and choose only certain reviews to display in a template.
  • Display a summary of your review ratings in a Google Search Result. You can automatically create the correct review snippet markup!

Great Customer Service

This was a very easy to implement plug-in. But when I had a snag, Josh came to the rescue and fixed it right away! Thanks so much! I highly recommend this plug-in!

Amazingly complete for a free plugin

I’m always leery using a newer plugin with so few reviews. But, the other choices weren’t working for me, so I took a leap of faith. So glad I did! This plugin provides features not available in other free options (like the ability to select reviews with minimum star rating), as well as setting up templates to be used in posts/pages, vs. widgets.

It is completely deserving of my 5-star rating, although I see the plugin author is being protective of information that would allow users of the free plugin to customize their experience. I have been able to customize CSS to change colors, fonts, and font sizes; but I’m not sure whether the slider within widget option is supposed to be animated (it is NOT animated on my site).

I would highly recommend this free plugin.

Beautifully Implemented

Josh has done a wonderful job implementing this plugin. I tested out the free version and immediately upgraded to the pro version to limit the word count on the reviews. It’s easy to set up, the templates are clean, there are plenty of options, and best of all… it works! Side note, he was extremely quick to answer questions! This plugin deserves more reviews. Hopefully it will rank up there quick!

Simple, and great!

Love this plugin, and felt like I should give it props since it had no reviews. Seriously, if you want a simple and nice way to display google reviews on your site, this plugin works wonderfully. Using it on 3 sites already.
