Customer Reviews for Business Catalyst

61% of customers read online reviews before making a purchase decision, and they are now essential for e-commerce sites.

User reviews are proven sales drivers, and something the majority of customers will want to see before deciding to make a purchase.

Quite simply, user reviews increase conversions. They can eliminate any doubts potential customers may have about a product, or can help product selection.

Here are some compelling stats on user reviews, why they are great for SEO, why bad reviews are valuable, and how to use reviews in navigation and on product pages...

Some stats

  • 63% of customers are more likely to make a purchase from a site which has user reviews. (iPerceptions, 2011).

  • Site visitors who interact with both reviews and customer questions and answers are 105% more likely to purchase while visiting, and spend 11% more than visitors who don’t interact with UGC. (Bazaarvoice, Conversation Index, Q2 2011).

  • Consumer reviews are significantly more trusted (nearly 12 times more) than descriptions that come from manufacturers, according to a survey of US internet users by online video review site EXPO. (eMarketer, February 2010).

The SEO benefits of reviews

Search engine spiders like unique content that is regularly updated, and user reviews are a great way to attract more content.

When many e-commerce sites just use the same standard manufacturer descriptions and product specifications, user-generated content can differentiate a product page in the search results.

This is important as it makes pages more useful to customers, and also increases the chance of ranking highly in the SERPs.

Reviews are an increasingly important part of the purchase journey for online consumers. Indeed, a recent survey found that 64% of consumers would read online reviews when purchasing technology items like cameras for example.

This also means that more consumers will be searching for the name of the product plus the word 'review', or related words such as 'ratings'.

If you have reviews on your site, then you stand a better chance of picking up this traffic.

If review content is correctly formatted, then these rich snippets can help increases click-through’s from search engine results pages. In the example below, the addition of the star rating makes the third result stand out.

According to stats from Distilled, these rich snippets can mean a 10-20% increase in click-through rates.

Bad reviews are valuable too...

All reviews are valuable, and a mix of positive and negative reviews helps to improve consumer trust in the opinions they read.

68% of consumers trust reviews more when they see both good and bad scores, while 30% suspect censorship or faked reviews when they don’t see any negative opinions on the page. Reference: www.econsultancy.com
