Google seller ratings

What are Google seller ratings?

Google seller ratings are an automated extension in AdWords Search ads that showcase advertisements with high ratings from online reviews. Google gathers seller ratings from reliable sources that aggregate business reviews, and displays them below text ads in Search Network campaigns.

How can Google seller ratings help my business?

Star ratings beside text ads catch customers’ eyes and provide social proof of a business’ high quality products and service, improving ad performance and earning more qualified leads. Google seller ratings are proven to increase click through rates by 17-20%.

What are the requirements to use Google seller ratings?

To take advantage of Google seller ratings, your business needs at least 30 unique reviews from the past 12 months, and a cumulative rating of at least 3.5 stars. These reviews must come from either Google Consumer Surveys, or third-party review websites. While 30 unique reviews is the minimum required, the more unique reviews you have, the higher the likelihood of seller ratings showing with your ad.
