6 Best Product Review Plugins for WordPress
News Courtesy of wpbeginner.com:
Are you looking for the best product review plugins for WordPress? If you regularly add detailed product reviews on your website, then you can use a product review plugin to make them more SEO friendly. In this article, we have hand-picked the best product review plugins for WordPress.
Why Use Product Review Plugin in WordPress?
What do you do when you want to buy something? If you are like most people, then you probably check out product reviews to compare different options.
That’s why there are so many popular reviews websites like Yelp, TripAdvisor, Rotten Tomatoes, and more. Even Amazon, world’s largest online store features product reviews so prominently.
Having researched all of these six plugins (WP Product Review Pro, All in One Schema Rich Snippets, WP Review Pro, Rich Reviews, WP Customer Reviews, Site Reviews), I can definitely vouch for one of them. Site Reviews may have a small install base, but as a free plugin, it is a great way to collect reviews and display them as a combined rich snippet. Normally, I would dismiss reviews on a company’s own website, but the benefits of having an attractive review schema displayed on that page in Google should not be ignored.
Aside from that, reviews are clearly presented and can be navigated through normal or ajax pagination. Users can submit their review right from your website which you can later approve. If you really want to establish trust with your audience, approve any genuine negative reviews you get too. No one wants to have a 1-star or 2-star review on their site. However, Site Reviews lets you have a public response to each review. If someone has a legitimate complaint and are not portraying an accurate description of what transpired, you can turn the tables with a response. Of course, if your business is shady to begin with and you get many negative reviews, it might be best to not have a review plugin.
One plugin that wasn’t listed in this collection is WP SEO Structured Data Schema. Developed by Kansas City SEO, it is the best plugin I’ve tried for generating Rich Snippets for free. It’s able to create the proper schema for not just reviews, but also news, events, products, services and more. In fact, I used it my one my recent blog posts for an SE Ranking review. If you want your reviews to stand out from the rest, give it a shot.
