INTEGRATE GOOGLE REVIEW

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, 

I would like to automatically integrate my Google Review into my web page. 

Does Squarespace allow it ? Otherwise, what would be my options to manually add it to my web page but not writing it down, still being connected to my Google page to help increasing the visibility. 

Thank you so much

I ended up building two versions myself to embed reviews into my wife's website:

The first used JavaScript with the Google Maps API and Google Places API, and I embedded this on the page using a tool called slick slider. It is a total coding solution, and the Google Places API only gives you the last five reviews.

My second version uses JavaScript and a Google Cloud Function, where it uses a service account to access the Google My Business API (which I had to request separately) using OAuth2. It was a challenge to get it working, but it works well now it is in place. I am able to get all of the reviews, and can code for the future. I retrofitted this into the same slick slider for convenience sake.

If you're not a coder, then one of the popular embedding solutions like Elfsight would be better for you. Depending on the popularity of your website, you can be paying between $50 and $100 per year, depending on what you would like to implement.

Squarespace doesn't have a built-in solution for showing Google Reviews but there are a number of third party services available that can embed Google Reviews in a Squarespace website.

One of them is trustmary.  They offer a free 'widget' (if your site receives less than 200 visitors a month and you don't mind their branding) or if you can pay for more features. Their service imports reviews from Google, Facebook, Yelp, Tripadvisor, Capterra, G2, and Google Play and they are automatically imported when new reviews are received.
