WP Customer Reviews
Google Places NOT picking up reviews (4 posts)

    I have successfully installed and posted WP Customer Reviews but they are not being picked up by Google Places. My first WP Reviews were approved before 3/26/12 and are still not on Google Places as of 4/10/12.

    I have verified that the information listed in the WP Customer Review options exactly matches the Google Places information.

    What am I doing wrong and how do I correct it?

    My own experience is that they are not picked up by Google Places but if someone is searching for reviews of your company, services or products. We use the plugin on a site called Supercloth Clean. Go to Google and do a search for "supercloth reviews" and you will see our site half way down the page and the stars showing that we have ratings.

    That being said check out this Google Places Page, Barbara Oliver Jewelery and underneath her Google Reviews are links to reviews from other sites as well as her own, here. It's not a WordPress site but it might be worth looking at the code and how she has the page setup.

    I don't know if it has to do with the number of reviews she has on Google and other sites or if it is how the testimonials are coded, it might be both.

    Hope this information helps.

    Thanks Ellenmva. Did you do anything to get the "reviews from around the web" added to your Google Places page?

    fe2o3y, I just looked up their Google Places and, no, they don't have that link in their listing.
