How to add Google reviews to any website (HTML)

Embedding Google reviews to your website is much easier than it sounds.
 
Here’s what you have to do:
notion image
  1. Open Google Maps, then search for your business name.
  1. Click “Share”.
  1. Select “Embed a map”.
  1. Click “Copy HTML”.
  1. Paste the code on your website where you want to display your reviews.
 
It’s that simple!
 
However, this is the only method that comes straight from Google. And it has a few problems:
1) Maybe you don’t want to embed a map on your website. What if your location is irrelevant?
2) No customization. If this map doesn’t fit “just right” on your site, you’ll have to go above and beyond in CSS to make it look nice.
3) Can’t select specific reviews. Google will simply list reviews by “most relevant”, “newest”, “highest” or “lowest”.
 
But, no worries—there is a better way!

Embedding Google reviews with Testimonial.to

With Testimonial.to, adding Google reviews to your website is a similar process.
 
First, create a Testimonial.to account. Then, in your dashboard:
  1. Go to your desired space.
  1. Select “Embed code for the wall”.
  1. You’ll be met with a simple Javascript snippet. Click “Copy”.
notion image
You can then paste this snippet anywhere you like on your website.

Embed all your testimonials in one place

The best part about this snippet code is that it doesn’t handle just Google reviews.
 
If you want to add tweets from Twitter, Yelp reviews, and even one-time text or video testimonials, you can too.
 
We call this the Wall of Love. It looks something like this, and is 100% customizable!

Collect testimonials more easily

Another advantage of using Testimonial.to: collecting testimonials is a breeze.
 
Built-in landing pages are a one-time, 5 minutes setup.

From then on, any customer you send there will be guided through the whole process:
  • Welcome message. Make them feel special!
  • Customizable questions:
    • Who are you?
    • How did [our product/service] help you?
    • What is the best thing about [our product/service]?
  • “Record a video” or “Send in text” button. Simple and frictionless.
  • Customize colors, add a gift incentive… and whatever else you can think of!
 
And, of course… don’t forget to say thanks!

How to add Google reviews to Wix

There are several ways to embed Google reviews on your Wix website.

Option 1: Embed HTML

First, grab your HTML snippet from Google Maps.
 
Here’s what you have to do:
notion image
  1. Open Google Maps, search for your business name.
  1. Click “Share”.
  1. Select “Embed a map”.
  1. Click “Copy HTML”.
 
Then, open your Wix dashboard.
  1. Click “Customize site”.
  1. On the sidebar to the left, click the “+” button (Add Element).
notion image
  1. Select “Embed Code”, then “Embed HTML”.
notion image
  1. Place this new element anywhere you like on your site, then hit “Enter Code”.
notion image
  1. Paste the code you copied earlier—done!
 
This option has a few issues, however:
  • You are stuck with the “maps” view. Sadly, this is the only option Google provides.
  • You can’t organize your reviews.
  • No customization. If this doesn’t fit quite right on your site, you’ll have to go out of your way with CSS to make it look nice.
 
If this is a deal breaker for you—check out options 2 and 3.

Option 2: Wix apps

Wix offers a marketplace of apps you can leverage when you build your website.
 
Naturally, Google reviews apps are plenty:
notion image
The advantage of using an existing Wix app is that you don’t have to bother with adding the code yourself.
 
These apps simply pull the data from your existing Google My Business account and display that data on your site.
 
Because there are plenty of choices, it’s difficult to say which one will work best for you. Trial and error until you find one that fits!
 
The one issue we have with Wix apps is that having too many of them will either break your site or slow it down noticeably.
 
Plus, customization is not their strong suit. And since they’re free, they are a little limited in functionality.
 
If you already have a lot of apps, consider option 3: using Testimonial.to.

Option 3: Testimonial.to

After creating a Testimonial.to account, head over to your dashboard, and:
  1. Go to your desired space.
  1. Select “Embed code for the wall”.
  1. You’ll be met with a simple Javascript snippet. Click “Copy”.
 
With this snippet in your clipboard, open your Wix dashboard and follow the steps from option 1:
  1. Click “Customize site”.
  1. On the sidebar to the left, click the “+” button (Add Element).
  1. Select “Embed Code”, then “Embed HTML”:
notion image
  1. Drag this new window anywhere you like on your website.
  1. Hit “Enter code”, and paste the code from your clipboard.
 
After you publish your site, you’ll notice your reviews are live.
notion image
The best part about Testimonial.to is that it’s not “just” Google reviews:
1) You get all your testimonials in one place (Facebook, ProductHunt…)
2) You can pick and choose your favorite reviews and organize them how you like
3) It’s 100% customizable
4) It’s easier to collect reviews with built-in feedback pages
5) Analytics to see how your reviews perform
