Yelp, Google, and Facebook Reviews

Have you wanted to embed reviews from the big boy providers – specifically Yelp, Google, and Facebook? Tired of manually entering them into your WordPress website or using their embed codes? Final question… do you happen to have our WordPress Testimonial Pro plugin?

A few months back, we released v2.3 with the ability to use the WordPress REST API and grab testimonials that you published from one WordPress website and display them onto another automatically. No more needing to constantly update multiple websites with new reviews.

Publish once and push to the rest. Magic!

I honestly have no idea how many of our customers use this feature. I’m going to guest that 90% of our users probably don’t as it’s really geared towards a specific purpose – child, sister, mini-sites, etc. where there is a single brand but multiple domains or landing sites for marketing. Another use would be on a project that I work on called PartnersLocal. This is a directory of our marketing customers giving them a landing page for online search that summarizes their services, reviews and contact information. Works great. Google loves it and we use BNE Testimonials on it for this purpose. Reviews are published on the customer’s website and we use the API in the directory to fetch them.

With the API in place within the BNE Testimonials plugin, I was now able to take it a step further to allow more users to take advantage of it. Now with v2.4, I’ve expanded the API to include reviews from Yelp, Google, and Facebook. Below is an example of all three. I’m going to showcase my families dental office in Covina, CA called Arrow Smile Dental.

So happy with my service! I can’t wait to go back for my cleaning again. My teeth feel so cleaned, the office was so nice organized and very clean, they were also so nice and professional to me and my kids they also went too. My son had to get tooth pulled and he didn’t feel any pain. His had issues with his teeth for a while now and he told me that they were good and gentle and they loved everyone. Thank you so much! 💯 recommend!

Dr. Victor M. Rosales is AWESOME!

We have been to many dentists before and we haven't met anyone so nice and charming dentist like him. He will make you feel comfortable and relax in his Spa like office and his office staffs are friendly and approachable too. We're so glad that he is our family dentist now!

More power Dr. Vic...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

If you haven’t used BNE Testimonials Pro yet, give it a try. There is a free version (very basic) on the WordPress repo. The free one doesn’t have the API, themes, layout options, etc. Check it out and if you like what you see, you’ll love what you can do with the Pro version. You won’t be disappointed.
