Adobe Muse Ratings and Reviews Widget.

Add ratings and reviews to your website and show them in Google Search engine results page (SERP). Reviews and ratings are indicators of quality, confidence and credibility. Now you can show your positive reviews of your Adobe Muse website pages in Google and standout from your competition.

Displaying rich snippets increases click through rates (CTR) and will attract more potential customers. In a Google search, star ratings will draw customers attention to that page and will encourage them to click on that URL than on others that do not have any ratings.

Visitors are more likely to purchase from sites which have star ratings and they also trust more the reviews from other customers than your own descriptions. Customers will want to see other customers recommendations before purchasing or visiting your site.
