Popups are a great way to catch the attention of potential customers that are either scrolling for a longer period of time or going to a very specific page, such as pricing or services page.

In-page widgets are ideal for showcasing reviews on your Wix site. Here is one example of an in-page Google reviews widget.

Step 3 – Embed Google Reviews to Wix

After you have created your widget, it is time to get the embed code and actually add the reviews to Wix website.

1. Copy Embed Code

In the widget editor, click the Add to website button which opens up a drawer. From there, copy the code snippet with the Copy script button.

4. Click Enter Code

This opens up the element’s settings and a text box, into which you can paste the embed code you copied before.

Pro tip: Remember to resize the element to your liking, as Wix website doesn’t allow widgets to resize themselves. In other words, resize the Google reviews widget to look exactly as you want it to look in terms of height and width.

Next click Update to save the element.

Now you should have a working Google reviews widget on your website!

Step 4 – Import All Other Reviews 

In case you have positive reviews across many third-party sites, we highly encourage you to import them to Trustmary as well. They can be used in the same reviews widget as the Google reviews.

Why Add Google Reviews to Wix Website

There are many reasons to opt for creating your website with Wix. One of them is that it is you can create a great-looking website for free and very quickly by using ready-made templates.

The other one might be the flexibility it offers in terms of how you can customize the layout and content shown to fit your business needs. They offer stylish and customizable website templates – which you can then further modify by having add-ons and plugins.

Thanks to Google’s algorithm updates that emphasize the importance of reviews, one new aspect all business owners need to do in 2023 is to add reviews on your Wix site ASAP. 

Here are three reasons why having at least one Google reviews widget on your Wix website makes total sense.

1. Search Engine Optimization and Local Results

Especially local businesses benefit from having great Google reviews. As a matter of fact, they might not be even shown on Google Maps, if they do not have any reviews. 

Yikes. Talk about lost business opportunities.

Here is a prime example of how search engines work nowadays:

local google reviews in search engines

With one glance, a prospective client looking for an accountant in Delaware will see:

  • Location 
  • Overall star rating
  • Open comments
  • Number of Google reviews
  • Years in business
  • Opening hours

This is why it is crucial for all businesses to claim their Google Business Profile and to keep the information on it up-to-date. 

Let us have a closer look at the Google review feed and how the businesses are ranked from one to three. The company ranking the highest in this snippet has open positive feedback written. 

Therefore, it seems that Google is putting more emphasis on longer reviews than mere star ratings or the overall number of Google reviews.

That same principle applies to all companies across industries. 

2. Add Credibility to Business

Each of our decision is unconsciously affected by the actions and reactions of others around us. This is called social proof

Before consumers buy anything, they tend to read online reviews. In fact, 93% of people read reviews before buying anything.

That is understandable, as potential customers want to know how your existing customers feel about you and the quality of your products and services. In other words, customers trust other customers, not your ad copy.

People want to share their experiences, and the best customer impressions – quite frankly – come from existing happy customers.  

testimonials work better than advertisements

3. Create a Positive Cycle

Once you have a handful of reviews on your Wix website, this will actually make it easier for you to get even more customers to leave a review as well.

This is also thanks to social proof. When we see others reviewing a business, we automatically think that we should be doing that too. 

One important thing to remember is to answer all reviews – the positive and the negative –  promptly. This is one great way to connect with your customers and it shows all prospective customers that you care about your customer base.

Adding Google reviews to your website works as a magnet for new reviews! At the same time, they help you improve your conversion rate.
