For the product reviews, our close cooperation partner SHOP VOTE published an update that optimizes the collected reviews on the rating platform.
New features of Shopvote
Previously, only the last 25 product reviews were displayed in a retailer’s review profile. With the update, the entire rated product catalog of a retailer is now clearly presented.
In the next step, the product ratings should then also be able to be used directly in Google Ads to ensure rating stars in the ads, just as retailers already know from their shop ratings.
In addition, a product detail page was introduced, on which each product now has its own rating profile. SHOPVOTE has announced that this update marks the start of a series of further updates to make the use of product ratings even more attractive for retailers.
Product profile in organic Google search results
The introduction of the rating profile for individual products brings with it another advantage: each product profile can now be displayed with the popular stars in the organic search results on Google. The search engine-optimized product profile is recorded and evaluated by Google. The number of ratings, the respective stars and even the product image are displayed in the organic search results (see example below).
When a product has star ratings in search results, it is perceived with higher credibility and trustworthiness. The stars represent the aggregated customer ratings and opinions about a product, allowing consumers to quickly get an idea of its quality and the satisfaction of other buyers.
This visual representation of reviews makes it easier for potential buyers to identify high-quality products and select trusted vendors. When a product has a high rating and positive comments, users are more likely to click and eventually purchase it.
Rating stars are also considered an indicator of a product’s relevance and popularity. Google takes these stars into account when determining the ranking of search results and often gives better visibility to products with good ratings and higher user satisfaction.
Import function for external ratings
Another interesting feature of SHOPVOTE is the import function for external reviews. If an online retailer switches to SHOPVOTE, he can use this function to import his previous ratings, without additional costs for clients of the IT law firm.
This allows retailers to advertise with the imported ratings immediately after switching to SHOPVOTE. Whether an import is possible depends on various factors and should always be discussed directly with SHOPVOTE before changing.
Shop ratings and product reviews: receive them with legal certainty
It is important for online retailers to receive positive shop ratings and product reviews, as these can have a positive impact on increasing sales.
If these ratings are also given a corresponding degree of trustworthiness through the choice of the rating portal used, this can result in an additional advantage for the use of ratings for advertising purposes. SHOPVOTE uses manipulation protection that is able to recognize fraudulent and abusive ratings in various ways.
The legally secure collection of customer opinions is particularly important for online retailers. That is why the process used by SHOPVOTE ensures the legally required consent of the consumer so that they can receive a rating request.
Overall, it is crucial for online retailers to generate reviews in a legal manner and to observe the legal requirements. Working with a trusted review portal like SHOPVOTE provides a safe and effective way to collect customer reviews and earn the trust of potential buyers.
