Difference between Reviews Badge and Widget

GatherUp offers a Reviews Badge and a Reviews Widget. This short post will show the difference and ideal placement for both.


Reviews Badge
The Reviews Badge is designed to show the Average Rating and amount of feedbacks received. The badge can be (optionally) linked to a page that runs your Reviews Widget. The badge is ideal for placement in the global sidebar or footer of your website.

Getting the badge code: Click on “Publish -> Review Widget” to get the embed code snippet.


Review Widget
The Reviews Widget is designed to show all the feedbacks left by your customers and your (optional) response to the customers feedback. The Widget uses Schema Markup allowing Search Engines to index your feedback received. Sites with a good page authority will have their “stars” shown in Google.

Getting the badge code: Click on “Publish -> Review Widget” to get the embed code snippet.


Ready to get started: Here is how to embed the badge or widget into your site!
