Display Yelp Reviews on your WordPress Site
Yelp reviews are the ones which are posted on the Yelp website. It is a business listing website that has reviews posted by the public as per their experience on a particular service or a product that is listed on Yelp.
Displaying the Yelp Reviews
Following is how you can enable the Yelp reviews display on your WordPress website:
- Install and Activate Yelp Reviews Widget WordPress Plugin
The process starts with the installation and activation of the plugin known as Yelp Reviews Widget Plugin. Then move to your WordPress admin area and enter the Widgets page under the Appearance section. You then have to drag the Yelp Reviews widget and drop it in the sidebar area.
- Create the Yelp Reviews App and Launch the API
After that, a new app has to be created from the page of Yelp developers and an API key is to be obtained for launching the Yelp reviews in this particular widget. As soon as the key is added, the widget is search-ready and you can easily type in the name and address of your business in order to find Yelp reviews for it. Once you find and select your business from the list, save it by opting for the button that says “Save Business and Reviews”.
- Publish the Yelp Reviews Widget in the Sidebar of Your Site
Although Yelp initially displays only 3 reviews on your website, you can individually expand these settings over time. Within the display option of the widget, you can edit, remove, and add various themes applied to it. Once you finish with the editing of your widget, you are required to save the changed settings after which the Yelp reviews of your business will appear on the sidebar.
