Get Rating With Author hReviewI do like a good cheese.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not about to go and create a cheese review site. After all, that’s already been done. But it could certainly be done better…

You may wondering if I have in fact finally gone mad. Well I have, but that’s rather besides the point. The point is that review sites are all the rage these days. Affiliate marketers love them because they are a great way of earning commission on products, and people like them because they want to know what is good and what is not.

Which brings me back to cheese, which I have used as an example to showcase a rather spiffy plugin known as Author hReview.

Cheese Review
Red Leicester - it's a good cheese.

The plugin adds an extra widget to your post screen, which you can populate with various bits of information which is then packaged neatly into a little review box.

You have a few options as to how the review summary box should be displayed, and you can also add a “Recent Reviews” widget to your sidebar.

Furthermore, Author hReview integrates with Google to display ratings on the search engine results page. This helps your site to stand out – people seem to be naturally drawn to ratings (I’m sure someone has done a psychological study on it).

All in all, Author hReview is a solid little plugin that allows you to quickly and easily turn your WordPress blog into a review site. Enjoy!
