Today we received notice from WordPress that our recent plugin submission related to our Bold City Product, Arrivala, had been approved for the WordPress Repository – Great News!
Our new Arrivala WordPress plugin, available here, creates a seamless integration between the business reviews collected through Arrivala and your WordPress business website. What kind of features are included? Let’s take a peek:
On the visual side of the website, the Arrivala plugin creates a floating ‘Read Our Reviews’ clickable tab. When clicked, it produces a pop-out showcasing your review ranking and your most recently collected reviews through Arrivala. This widget is controllable through the backend of WordPress allowing you to customize its color, location, whether it is shown on mobile and more.
Behind the scenes, the Arrivala plugin adds perfectly structured ‘schema’ to your website code. Schema is invisible data that search engines (like Google & Bing) read to categorize and show your website information in search results. Have you ever seen a search result that shows a star rating review under it like the image to the right? That is created by schema and is exactly what this plugin does for you but without any technical or coding knowledge required. You don’t even need to hire a developer to integrate!
Finally, the Arrivala review widget adds a link to your website allowing visitors to your website to quickly review your company and share that review to your profiles across Google, Yelp, Trip Advisor, Houzz, Zillow, Better Business Bureau and more.
The plugin is completely free to download from WordPress and is compatible with all Arrivala account versions (including the free version). Yep, you read that right, you can collect awesome reviews, showcase those reviews, get perfectly crafted schema markup all without even providing a credit card. Did we go crazy?!
We’re pretty excited as this is Bold City’s first office plugin in the WordPress Repository. All WordPress plugins in the repository have to go through a rigorous review process, being evaluated for code quality and security by the WordPress team.
