    Google/Facebook Reviews Widget

    Hey guys,

    I was looking for a nice Wordpress widget to show and rotate Google reviews and then I stumbled upon RichPlugins — Perfect WordPress plugins.

    The only thing I don't like is that it only shows the first 5 Google reviews if I am reading it correctly.

    Has anyone used these guys?

    Does anyone have another, better alternative?

    Thanks for posting this - I wasn't aware of it previously but I'll give it a test run.

    According to the site, it's not the first 5 Google reviews but the "5 most helpful reviews" - not sure how they determine that.

    I think it's determined by Google. By default they show the "5 most helpful reviews" on a Google listing.

    It also looks like the plugin will pull the reviews in and store them in a database so as you get more reviews and the "5 most helpful reviews" change, you'll add more and more reviews to your database, allowing you to have more than 5.

    I emailed just to make sure.

    I got a reply back and it was as I expected. They pull the 5 "most helpful" reviews and then store them in a database so as your review collection grows, so will your database of reviews as Google switches in and out the reviews.

    No one has an alternative by the way?

    Re: Google/Facebook Reviews Widget

    Good find. I have been connecting clients with Podium for the last couple years and they give us a "recent reviews" embed code.

    This might be a good solution on how to showcase plugins for clients not using Podium.

    Do you have any website examples where you've been using it? Would like to see how it looks.

    I don't yet. I'm on the fence about purchasing because I definitely want to check out alternatives first.

    I'll check out Podium for sure.
