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.
Screenshot of how your Google results will look like.
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.

HOW DOES IT WORK
- Open & edit ratings.php with Notepad++ (or another software that will not change file encoding).
- Change at least username, password and csvname values (do not use default values to increase security).
- Add Widget element into your Muse Workspace.
- Attach ratings.php file in widget settings, you will see how preview changes showing you dummy comments.
- Customize as you want and upload your website to any PHP compatible server.
- Once you have uploaded it, write your first comment and refresh page to see reviews and ratings results over submit form.
- You should take into account that these form elements are not editable directly in Adobe Muse nor you can add more fields, so to control the form layout you must use the widget settings.
