Choose What Displays in the Review Widget

The Review Widget displays feedback received from your customers. Available settings allow you to choose what content to display.

Select settings for the Review Widget in GatherUp to choose what you want to display

Choose to display only 1st-party reviews, only 3rd-party reviews or both review types.

Display both 1st- & 3rd-party Reviews

Display Only 1st-party Reviews

  • 1st-party reviews are marked up with review schema.
  • Total Review Count and Average Rating displayed is for 1st-party reviews only

Display Only 3rd-party Reviews

  • Only 3rd-party reviews, from the sites you are monitoring in your account, display in the Review Widget.
  • This version does NOT include review schema. To be compliant with Google’s guidelines for schema, you can’t apply schema to 3rd-party reviews. Doing so would result in duplicate content as they are already marked-up on the sites they originated from.

Additional settings include:

  • Review Sites to Display
  • Number of reviews to show per page
  • Auto display 1st-party reviews at or above a selected star rating
  • Auto display 1st-party reviews at or above a selected star rating
  • Rating Average Calculation per all reviews or only approved reviews
Example: The Review Widget on the GatherUp website showing both 1st- and 3rd-party reviews.
