Google Stars Website Plugin - How to Implement ProvenExpert's Plugin with Google Stars Code Schema

Published: April 4, 2022 | Last updated: April 4, 2022

Have you ever googled something and seen the results display a star rating? It’s a really useful function, isn’t it? Most people searching for something they need will bypass the time spent researching and opt to take their business to the seller with the best rating. This can mean businesses that haven’t optimized their review scores are missing out. 

But how can you get Google stars from trusted reviews? That’s where ProvenExpert comes in. With a quick copy and paste of some simple coding, we can start boosting your business and showing off your all-important five-star reviews.

It’s simple…

STEP ONE: Log into your free ProvenExpert profile and open up your dashboard. Don't have a profile yet? Sign up for free here.

Click the Reputation Boost button with the rocket on the left side menu. This will open a second drop-down menu. Select Google stars.

As you scroll down, you will see a table of contents to help you to navigate the steps to add your Google Stars information to the website. Check out the examples of the four different ways to display your Google Stars and select the one that best works for you. 

**Please note that you must fully display this on your website. Hiding it on your website will result in your Google start rating being removed from your Google listing.**

STEP TWO: Further down, you will see the option to generate the code for either PHP-Script or Javascript. Click the button for your preferred option, and you’ll see the generated code dropdown in a black box. Copy this code in its entirety.

**Please note that editing parts of this code could affect its ability to function on your website**

Now you’ve copied the code, head on to your chosen content management system and open up the appearance settings. In this example, we’re putting our Google stars onto the footer of a WordPress page.

STEP THREE: Once you have chosen which part of the page you wish your Google starts to appear, paste the code onto the relevant section of your CMS coding and save and update the page. 

Return to your original tab with your website and hit refresh. Your new Google stars should now be visible.
