A while ago I did a review of a great plugin called Author hReview and gave it 5 stars.
It is an amazing free plugin that helps your reviews stand out in Google search results and even helps your reviews rank higher.
I’ve been using that free plugin for some time on this blog and I really like the looks it gives to my posts (the box you can see on the right) and the review widget (in the footer).
But the best thing is that the author of the plugin, Hesham of Famous Bloggers, created a premium version of the plugin and now it rocks even more… Never thought I will be able to say that – the plugin was very cool the way it was:)
Of course all the great stuff you have in the free version of the plugin are still there. So here are some new options that I really liked about it.
The new look in the dashboard
I am very visual and this is one of the things that first jumped at me when I installed the premium version of the plugin. I love how Hesham divided parts of reviews in different tabs.
Link do-follow option
I always “nofollow” my affiliate links, but you never know what kind of deal you may have with the developer of a product you are reviewing, or if you will even use an affiliate link, so this option to do-follow a link from the review is very useful. It is located in the Link tab.
Probably one of the best new features are shortcodes. They let you embed a review box anywhere in the post. So if you have a 3.000 words review of a product, embedding a few boxes throughout your post would probably be a great idea, giving people more call to actions and getting a better click through rate.
You can choose the text on the button, so instead each review saying “More details”, you can have different calls to action on your buttons, like “Download here”, “Click for more info”, “Get it” and so on. You also have three options for aligning the button (left, center and right).
In case you haven’t seen this plugin’s results, here is a screenshot of one of my reviews from my fitness blog in Google search results:
Considering how much this plugin can help you with getting your reviews out there, it is definitely worth the investment, especially with 50% off price during launch time. And there is something else… read below :)
Additional gift with launch price
There is another plugin that you will get with this one, that you can probably put to good use. WordPress Customer Testimonials plugin is the easy way to add testimonials to your blog. It looks pretty amazing, and you can see it in action at the bottom of the Author hReview sales page.
Note that this plugin is not going to be free, and you are only getting it free if you purchase Author hReview plugin in the launch period.
I highly recommend this plugin for all type of WordPress blogs!
