What is the Feedback badge widget?
Working Feedback badge widgets (aka. Quality Badges/Badges of Honour) let clients embed a link to their feedback on their own website with a bespoke badge. Each company has its own widget that displays the current satisfaction percentage of their current feedback along with a link to its full profile on www.thediscdirectory.co.uk
The badge widget for Affinity Training (specialists in social care training) is shown below.
Who can use the badge widget?
Anybody that has subscribed to the Working Feedback service can use the widget as long as they abide by our terms and conditions. However, there are certain service providers that should be particularly interested in using them:
Service providers, such as care providers, accountants, solicitors, financial advisers who want to add something to their website to assure people that they have bona fide feedback independently collected by a third party.
Businesses that want to show a level of credibility and are open to displaying customer and client feedback for their marketing purposes- the badge widget also acts as a helpful 'backlink' to the directory for Google and other search engines.
How do I add the badge widget on my website?
- Find your business page on www.thediscdirectory.co.uk
- Click on the 'Your SEO Toolbox'icon (half way down on the left)
- The 'Badges' tab gives you a choice of six different widgets
- Grab the PHP or HTML code (see the image below).
- Paste this into the HTML code of your website.
Whoever maintains your website should be able to do this fairly easily.
How do I remove the widget from my website?
Simply remove the code from your website. Alternatively, Working Feedback can deactivate any widget so that it is no longer live.
