Reviews are one of the essential parts of any online store’s branding and marketing. They help in building trust and loyalty, and typically describe what sets your products apart from others.
The number of online consumers who read and trust online reviews is increasing day by day. According to a survey by BrightLocal, 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation—which is very impressive, considering most online reviews are posted by total strangers. The same survey found that only 12% of the population did not regularly read reviews for consumer products.
Not offering user reviews (or ignoring them as a potential marketing opportunity) is similar to alienating 88% of your buying population, depriving them of information they want to help them make their buying decisions.
Every experienced online shopper knows what to look for. They typically read the most positive reviews first (to see if the product does what they want), followed by the worst. They know that a decent percentage of bad reviews on otherwise good products aren’t necessarily related to the product itself.
Product ratings show a 5-star rating system (or other ways) and a count of total reviews. These star ratings represent aggregated rating and review data for the product, compiled from multiple sources like merchants, third-party aggregators, editorial sites and consumers.
The overall shopping experience may include deliveries, returns, and customer service. Product Ratings are related to certain products, and not to your store or business.
Star ratings may not always be shown on a Shopping ad. Star ratings are shown on Shopping ads when system determines that the rating information is accurate and relevant for shoppers’ needs.
