I am looking to add some sort of tool to my website that allows customers to review products. I want potential customers to be able to see the reviews, I want to be able to use the star ratings in my SEO, and I want to be able to report/manage/edit reviews.

Any help...helps :))

What platform are you using? Most e-commerce solutions have ratings built right in.


I would stay away from BazaarVoice or any similar products where your ratings are hosted on another company's server. BazaarVoice makes you pull their content into your pages using iframes, so in search engines, you get zero credit for those ratings - you're boosting BV instead. Anything you can keep on your own server will load faster and be credited to your benefit. Try to look for one that uses Schema.org or some other type of microdata which the search engines will understand - then you may even get fancy star ratings right in Google search results.

Elaine - Thanks for the reply - We have an in-house eCommerce Shopping cart platform and don't currently have plans on moving away from that.

I could have "our people" build one but I would rather not. I'll check out schema - i've looked at it in the past when doing Google Analytics research so I'll keep an out!

We use Orankl with our Shopify website. It works great. We can reply to reviews, it is built for SEO and it can automatically publish 5 star reviews, etc.https://apps.shopify.com/orankl Hope that helps a bit! - Gretchen, allthingsrealestatestore.com
