Adding fake reviews to your site is in the long run a bad idea, it can not only damage your site’s reputation but it’s bad practice. That said I have developed a module that will seed Magento with reviews which could be based on a specific criteria, it does this by creating a unique combination of words to create a readable sentence.
Not only this but it can add the reviews over time at a pace that is SEO friendly and organic.
You might think Google could easily foil such a system but in reality there is such a huge combination of sentences that it would take some genius algorithm to work out that these where being added programmatically in combination with a random time sequence I don’t see how Google would know the difference as long as it’s not overdone.
Getting back on topic the idea of this module is just to seed, marginally boost or test you product ratings for example adding a minimum of 1 or 2 reviews per product to get you started.
Get in touch if this is something you need on your ecommerce store.
If you advertise via Google’s product listing ads and sell products that are commercially available elsewhere , it’s key to be competitive on price, one way of doing this is through Google Shopping as all competitors who also advertise on Google are of course publishing their prices and most do. If your business is very price driven or there’s some lines you would like to be competitive on then this is a unique way of keeping up with your competition.
The module can work in a variety of ways or be configured to work in a way that suits your business , I would be able to integrate it into other ecommerce platforms.
The main functions are:
- Lookup a product on Google Shopping record pricing data
- Price matching feature beat or match a competitors price – Automatically set the product price
- Define which competitors you need to match or beat
- Other conditions e.g not going below the product cost price
- Works for grouped or single products
- Trigger other functions upon product save
- Receive a report of what products where changed, when and which competitor
- Display competitor prices vs your price on the product view
Integration with Google Shopping API:
As well as updating the prices on your store, it can now also update Google Shopping directly via the Google Shopping API. Without this you may run the risk of the product listing ads being pulled because the prices in your feed are not up to date.
Of course the above runs on auto pilot and can run once a day or however frequently you need it, a daily file can be uploaded/emailed to your site
