Step 1: Featuring your reviews in Elfsight Google Reviews widget
The easiest way to get your reviews displayed in the Google Reviews widget is to find your business or location using its name and address (city, street, zip, etc.). Alternatively, you can use its Google Place ID. If you operate an online business or the location you would like to add doesn’t have a physical address, you need to use its Google Maps Embed Code. Below we have provided step-by-step instructions that will help you find your location and display your reviews.
