Review sites are becoming more and more significant to people’s buying decisions and purchasing intent. The number of consumers who read and trust online reviews is increasing.

Enabling customer reviews on your site can have a positive effect on your practices organic search rankings. For example, each new review written about a service on your site increases the amount of unique content your site offers on that service, meaning you’ll be seen as having higher authority, more relevance, and a higher chance of getting those pages ranked.
Listing your company on review websites is a crucial step to your ongoing visibility and a great opportunity for customer service. The number of positive reviews you have on external websites might actually have a bigger impact on your rankings than the reviews on your own site.
