How to add Review Monitoring to your ReviewMaxer account
Review Monitoring allows you to see review activity across all of your review site links in nearly real time. You can also receive email alerts whenever new reviews post, display a stream of your latest and greatest reviews on your website and review funnel landing page and automatically share positive reviews to your social media profiles.
Adding Review Monitoring
To add review monitoring, navigate to Dashboard > Reviews. Click the Add Review Monitoring button.
Review monitoring will run once when you first activate it, then nightly thereafter. The software will upload your new reviews and send out review alerts the morning after the reviews appear. Once monitoring runs, your existing reviews will populate the Reviews page and it should look more like this:
You can choose which star ratings to publish and exclude certain websites from publishing by going to Dashboard > Reviews > Monitor and Stream > Review Stream.
We can almost always pull reviews from your main listing URL. However, you may want to guide visitors to a different call-to-action URL than the one we monitor for reviews. To do so, use this guide:
Once you’ve found the right URL, click the Pencil () next to the appropriate link and paste it into the Review Monitoring URL (optional) box.
Note that you can monitor a review site link without displaying it on your landing page. To hide a link from your page, navigate to Dashboard > Funnel > Links > Your Review Site Links. Click the check mark () next to the link you’d like to hide until it turns gray.
Adding the Review Stream to your website
Once you’ve set up Review Monitoring, you can embed a stream of your latest and greatest reviews from across the web into your website using a simple copy-and-paste widget.
Navigate to Dashboard > Reviews > Review Stream. Click the code in the box to select it, then Ctrl/Cmd + C to copy it. Then, in the appropriate place on your website, click Ctrl/Cmd + V to paste.
If you’re a WordPress user, be sure to look into our SEO-friendly Review Stream plugin. We also have a Joomla Review Stream module and a Drupal Review Stream module.
