About our Rating Widget API

We are very excited about the recent release of our Rating Widget API! This function allows Web Marketing/Advertising Product and Service owners, bloggers, and review aggregate sources to easily publish user or editor ratings for any products or services listed within our platform. By simply copying and pasting a couple short lines of code, users can publish Overall (User or Editor) Ratings as well as specific rating fields (i.e. Ease of Use, Customer Service/Support, Price, etc.). Published rating widgets automatically update as new user reviews/ratings are submitted via our platform. Additional features include the options to display numerical value of rating, number of user reviews, and a WebsiteMarketingReviews.com badge.
