The reviewmeister, Phil Rozek did a great post today sharing a bunch of review badges you can use on client's sites.

<a href="http://www.localvisibilitysystem.com/2014/10/14/ultimate-list-of-review-widgets-and-badges-for-your-local-business-website/">Ultimate List of Review Widgets and Badges for Your Local Business Website
LocalVisibilitySystem.com</a>

What good are your reviews if nobody sees them?

Whenever possible, you should show them off on your site by using a review ?widget? or badge. Many review sites offer them for the taking.

But review widgets and badges are more than flashy ?trust? symbols. They can also:

- Encourage any current / past customers who visit your site to leave reviews

- Help with your barnacle SEO (because you?re linking to your listings)

- Add a little extra color and je ne sais quoi to your site

Great post and nice list of badges Phil!

Thanks!

@Deke - good work on that badge.

@Phil - Just to clarify... Will linking a Google+ page to a custom badge on a website (or email) give Google a reason to want to filter a review coming directly from clicking that link?

As long as not everyone you ask to a review gets to your page by clicking the link, you should be fine.
