- Install the review script so you can display Google Reviews.
Let’s take a quick look at the dashboard. You can see the total number of engagements, how many new reviews you’ve received, leave review clicks, the number of reviews read, and a handy graph, comparing reviews by year.
The next section deals with settings for the widget, such as placement, device display, and functionality, or level of functionality.
- Placement On Your website:- Choices are Bottom left or Bottom right.
- What Devices To Show On:- Choose from all, Desktop Only, Mobile & Tablet Only.
- Level Of Functionality:- Either Full Functionality or See Reviews only. This means users cannot click to be taken to your Google My Business page to leave a review.
Adding Goodreviews To Your Website
In the widget settings section we’ve just covered, you’ll notice the code snippet in the black box. All you have to do is copy that code and paste it.
In your WPZOOM theme options, navigate to custom code and paste the snippet Goodreviews provides, preferably in the footer, see below for an example.
That’s all you need to do. Once pasted, click save all changes.
User Settings / Billing & Subscription
Standard stuff, no point in showing you a screenshot, the User Settings displays account holder information, email, password, and the linked Google My Business accounts. Useful if you need to change accounts at a later date.
As you’d expect, the billing section displays the current plan you’re on, invoices, card details, .etc.
