Or you can click here and skip directly to the tutorial.

Why Embed Yelp Reviews on Your Website?

As a popular review platform, Yelp can be a fantastic source of reviews from genuine users. 

By embedding positive reviews from Yelp, you’re showing everyone that actual people on a popular review site enjoy your products.

These reviews can work as social proof and convince people to buy from you. That way, you can easily convert more visitors and grow your sales.

Reviews from Yelp can also help you highlight certain features of your products or show engaging photos.

As a result, your visitors can learn more about your business from your other customers. It’s a fantastic way to build trust and turn people into loyal customers. Plus, fresh content from online reviews can be great for your SEO.

Now that you know how showing Yelp reviews help your business, let’s look at the best way to embed reviews on your site.

Easiest Way to Embed Yelp Reviews on Your Website

If you want to add a Yelp review to your website, there are 2 options that you can use:

  • Manual Way: Generate the embed code for each Yelp review, tweak the embed code, and then manually add the code to your website
  • Easy Way: Use a WordPress plugin that can automatically display the reviews on your website for you.

By choosing the manual way, it can take a lot of time and effort to embed your Yelp reviews. 

For each review, you’ll have to open Yelp, generate the embed code, return to your site, and insert the code into your website by yourself.

Plus, you’ll have to manually tweak the embed code or hire a designer if you want to customize your Yelp reviews. As a result, your embedded reviews might clash with your brand’s website design.

And if you face any errors when adding the HTML embed codes, you won’t have anyone to help you out.

To avoid all this, you can simply go for the easy method of embedding Yelp reviews. All you have to do is use the Reviews Feed Pro plugin.

On top of Yelp reviews, you can use this simple tool to embed Google reviews, Facebook reviews, and even Tripadvisor reviews with ease.

All you have to do is paste the URL of the Yelp business page on the popup and click on the Finish button.
