Product Review Graphics, Ratings and Schema Markup

Levels of “review graphics” can come built in as widgets on certain themes. Extra by Elegant Themes has some of this functionality for example.

There are plugins dedicated to this particular functionality though.

WP Review (and WP Review Pro)

You can also get a paid version of the plugin for some more advanced features

This plugin was recommended by Spencer Hawes at Niche Pursuits.

It operates on a yearly subscription model for about $67 per year.

WP Product Review

You can also get a paid version of the plugin for some more advanced features

It operates on a yearly subscription model for about $56 per year.

Content Egg

This plugin is recommended in a few Facebook groups

Ad insertion plugin

Ad Inserter

This one was recommended by Doug Cunnington on one of his podcasts. Interestingly in Doug’s example, the plugin was being used for Affiliate Disclaimer Management as well as Ad Placement.

It’s worth mentioning at this point that these “Ads” could in fact be your own self hosted “Ads” promoting your own products across the site on scale without editing hundreds of pages.
