Shopper Ratings - Final Deployment

Final Deployment Checklist

Installing Shopper Ratings is a multi-step process which requires the work of several teams working in concert to ensure a smooth delivery. Prior to final deployment the following items need to be checked before your implementation is put into production:

  • Product Detail Page
    • Product Detail Page Ratings Snippet
      • Do the stars render correctly?
      • When clicking “Read all [N] reviews”, does this interaction automatically scroll the user down correctly?
      • When clicking on “Write a Review”, are you transferred to the correct page with the form?
      • (if applicable) Do your legacy reviews render correctly on the page?
      • Are you getting javascript errors?
    • Category Stars
      • Do the stars render correctly?
      • Does the score reflect the overall rating of the product?
      • Does this snippet render correctly on your search and category pages?
    • Product Detail Page Review Area
      • Are your test and legacy reviews rendering correctly?
    • ACS SEO Service
      • When checking the source code of the product detail page, do you see the actual review content?
      • Are the reviews visible to Google using the Rich Snippet Testing Tool?
      • Have you set the timeout thresholds correctly to ensure your page still loads in the event the service goes down?
  • Standalone Write a Review Page
    • Does the link “< Return to product detail page” take you back to the proper URL?

    • Can you submit a review without an issue?
