Facebook reviews include user ratings of your products or services and can be a very important part of your business. Reviews help let customers know that other’s rate your products and that they shouldn’t be afraid of trying them too. In this article, we will show you how to display your Facebook page reviews on your WordPress site to help benefit your business and generate more revenue.
Why Should You Display Facebook Reviews On Your Website?
Facebook pages have a review system that allows users to post reviews and rate their favourite products or services. Having good reviews on your Facebook page reassure new users about the stability of your brand and proves to others that you have provided a good service or product in the past.
These Facebook page reviews are very similar to testimonials in WordPress. Most users find it hard to leave a testimonial directly on your blog or website, however, everyone uses social media platforms like Facebook which makes it easier to collect reviews there instead.
You can display these reviews on your blog, so the new visitors can quickly read what others have said about your services. Important social proof like this will help you build trust around your brand.
Showing Your Facebook Page Reviews In WordPress
The first thing you need to do is install and activate the Facebook Reviews plugin.
Upon activation, you need to go to Appearance > Widgets in your WordPress admin area to drag and drop the Facebook Reviews widget into the blog sidebar.
Next, you need to add a widget title and click on the Connect to Facebook button to launch your pages in this widget.
Once connected, you’ll see all your Facebook pages. You will need to select the page that you want to display reviews from in your WordPress sidebar.
Next, you need to expand the widget settings one by one to manage the display of page reviews on your blog. In Review Options, you can enable Google rich snippets, set filters for reviews to display, and add the number of reviews per page.
In Display Options, you can hide unnecessary elements, enable dark background, limit review length, and select a theme for page reviews.
After that, you should expand Slider Options. From here, if you enable Review Slider Theme, then it will automatically change the theme in your display options. You can fix the slider speed and add the number of reviews to display on each slide.
In Advanced Options, you can manage links, cache, and API settings for Facebook page reviews.
Once you are done with these settings, go ahead and save the changes. You can now head over to your blog to see the Facebook page reviews in your sidebar.
You can also create shortcodes for your Facebook page reviews and display them anywhere on your blog. For this, you need the Facebook Reviews Pro plugin.
Once activated, simply visit the Settings > Facebook Reviews Pro page and go to the Shortcode Builder tab. You’ll need to click on the Connect to Facebook button to select your page.
The 4 sections for managing the display of page reviews are similar to the settings in your sidebar widget. Your changes will automatically update the shortcode box that can be seen at the right side of the screen.
You can paste this shortcode into blog posts or pages to display your Facebook page reviews in WordPress. After that head over to your blog to see the reviews in action.
