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.

Google Reviews widget allows adding only 1 Google source. If you would like to combine several Google sources in one widget, please take a look at our All-in-One Reviews app.

Choose the way to display the reviews

Displaying the reviews by your street address

Go to the Source tab of the widget's settings in your Elfsight account, and paste your business name and street address within the Search field. Click the Search button:

The results will display in a dropdown list. Click on your business' name, and you'll see its reviews in the preview:

Displaying the reviews using Google Place ID

Google Place ID is a unique identifier of a certain location or business. It is a combination of letters and numbers presented in text format. By using the Google Place ID Finder, you can easily find your Google Place ID. Simply input the location in the search field, and the tool will automatically generate the associated Google Place ID:

Our Google Reviews widget doesn't support Business Profile IDs. A Business Profile ID identifies a Google Business Profile, not a certain place or business.
