What are Google Seller Ratings?

90% of online shoppers say that reviews from other customers help to influence their purchase decisions. Use site reviews from your happy customers to let other shoppers know instantly that you are a trusted store by displaying Google Seller Ratings alongside your ads.

Google Seller Ratings let online customers know that your business is highly rated and recommended by other shoppers. They show your store’s average star rating alongside your ads based on site reviews given by your customers.

Google aggregates reviews of your site and creates an aggregated star ranking that is then displayed next to your adwords ads on Google search results.

Here are our tips to help you get more site reviews and increase your star rating on Google search.

Ask your customers for reviews

It really is that simple; just ask! Online shoppers love to tell others of their experience shopping your brand, so why not provide them with the opportunity to do so? By sending out a review request via email to your past shoppers after they make their purchase, you provide an easy place for customers to talk about their experience – helping you to generate tons of reviews for your site. Use Yotpo’s Mail After Purchase feature to customize the look and feel of your review requests to suit your brand, or offer coupons through our platform to give an added incentive to fill out your request.

Focus on customer experience

Nothing motivates a customer to write a review like a positive customer experience, from browsing to checkout. In a noisy marketplace, you can ensure your brand stands out by remembering to make every aspect of the customer journey as intuitive, seamless, and quick as possible. By keeping your customers happy, they will be sure to spread the good word to others!

Engage with your shoppers

In collecting reviews from customers, you are also starting a conversation with them. Think of your site as a typical brick-and-mortar store, if you provide a space for them to express their questions and concerns about your product, you are more likely to build trust in your brand for current and future shoppers alike. Be sure to read what your customers are saying about your products and respond to customer queries, to build a community around your product and help customers engage with your brand.
