In online business, getting 5 star ratings literally creates a big difference. It distinguishes the bad from the good or the good from the bad. Everyone’s opinion, recommendations, experience, everything matters online, and a good rating shows exactly that. Here in this article, we are going to talk about where these ratings would appear and how to make sure that they appear in all of these places on Google.
To get started, we must first need to know where these ratings appear. They appear in:
- Listings of Google Map.
- Snippets of the Knowledge panel.
- On the profiles of review sites.
- On Google paid ads, usually next to them.
- Google website page listings.
These are the places where your ratings will appear. Getting ratings on these places is very important. Let’s get started on how we will get ratings in all of these places.
Steps to get 5 Star Ratings to appear on Google
The best way to get this rating to show everywhere on Google, you will have to get a Google My Business account. Get a Google My Business account and register there. Below we will tell you what you have to do.
Go to Google my business main page. Log in with your Gmail account or any other account. You will most probably need a Gmail account. Use this account to login and then search for your business. There is a feature on the front page that will tell you to search for your business. Search for your business by its name. If it is already registered on Google my business, then you will have to claim it. If it is not showing on the search list, then that means it is not registered yet, and you will have to register it now. Without it, you will not get Google ratings.
To register your business on Google my business, click on the “Start Now” button on top. Once you click on the button, it will ask you to put your business name on it. Then it will ask for its location. Give a solid business location, the one that is consistent with your website or other internet pages.
After you improve the business location, Google will ask you if you operate a business from your location, or do you not need it.
Now enter your phone number. Enter your website if you have any. Google will now ask you to verify your business. Choose a verifying method and verify it. It will take a few days.
Once the verification is done, your business will always appear on the right side of the search result page whenever someone searches it.
From your Google my business, you see a section where you can write reviews about your business. Click on it, and you will get a review writing URL. Send this URL to all of your customers. Get as much feedback as you can. The more review and rating you get, the more your overall rating will develop.
Slowly it will spread to all of Google’s other services. Those ratings will appear in those five places that we mentioned.
There you go. That is how your ratings can appear next to your business on Google. We hope you found our article helpful.
