    Default Embed Google Review Score

    As we have a google review score of 4.9/5 it'd be nice to embed this somewhere on the homepage. It seems that this WAS available via google but they've now removed the facilty.

    Am I missing something? Does anyone know how to do this? There seem to be plenty of premium servcies that will do it...

    It's just the overall score we're looking to show, not product reviews or comments.

    Cheers
    Tom

    I just made an image of the stars and linked it to my google reviews and posted that. Quick, free and easy.

    Ours is done by Google. It shows on our homepage as 4.8 and 5 stars in a box that says customer reviews. If you click on it it takes you to the Google review page.

    Not saying this will work but try putting the following code in the closing body section of your site template. Make sure you change "xxxxxxxx" to your Google merchant ID

    <!-- BEGIN GCR Badge Code -->
    <script src="https://apis.google.com/js/platform.js?onload=renderBadge"
    async defer>
    </script>
    <script>
    window.renderBadge = function() {
    var ratingBadgeContainer = document.createElement("div");
    document.body.appendChild(ratingBadgeContainer);
    window.gapi.load('ratingbadge', function() {
    window.gapi.ratingbadge.render(
    ratingBadgeContainer, {
    // REQUIRED
    "merchant_id": "xxxxxxxx",
    // OPTIONAL
    "position": "BOTTOM_RIGHT"
    });
    });
    }
    </script>
    <!-- END GCR Badge Code -->
    Regards,

    Dave

    Deefer - It's an option, but Id prefer it to be a direct representation, just in case our score changes. Not the end of the world, but just one more thing to have to keep and eye on and edit in the future.

    Rijam - Thats what we're after. Any hints on how to do it?

    Dave - Thanks for that, but doesn't seem to be working (even with the merchant id in )

    That's very strange. Just looked at Rijam's site and they are using the code I suggested. Have you put it in the correct place ?

    Probably not

    The code has gone in Template Manager -> My Template -> Pages Tab -> Closing body

    That's correct. Not sure why it's not working then.

    I have the above script in the Head Section of the Custom JavaScript Code, not the Closing Body ... It works as should.

    So I decided to come back and have a look at this once again. The code works fine, but having an adblocker prevents it from displaying, in my case AdBlockPlus on Chrome.
