Embeddable Ratings Badge Setup Guide

This setup guide will run through a typical setup of the Embeddable Ratings Badge extension from start to finish.


The Embeddable Ratings Badge extension allows listing owners to create a widget to display their live ratings from your directory on their website. This is fairly identical to the TripAdvisor rating widget, albeit a lot cooler. 

The embed widget is highly customizable. You can control every feature of the badge and make it available to the user to customize or restrict it. For example, you can remove the color change options so that all embeds match your branding colors. Here is how the Customizer looks by default: 

For a full list of features see the Embeddable Ratings Badge product page.


The first step if you haven't already, is to install the Embeddable Ratings Badge extension. This can be done by following our guides on how to install an extension.

Step 1 - Settings

Once installed and activated, you can find the Embeddable Ratings Badge settings at GeoDirectory > Settings > Embed

Embeddable Ratings Badge extension comes with sane defaults meaning the default settings will work for the majority of users, however, there are many customizations that can be done via the settings, for a full explanation of what all the settings do please see our settings overview.

Step 2 - Adding the Widget

Next, you will need to add the Click to Embed badge on the frontend. You can use our GD > Embed widget to add a claim submission button to any widget area, or within content areas as a shortcode or block. To do so, please see the guide about GD Embed widget.

All Widgets come as Widgets, Shortcodes or Blocks. Learn more about our Super Duper Widgets.

It is recommended to display this widget, block or shortcode only on Single Listing page. You can specify display options in widget settings.
