    Thanks so much for the mention of our Ultimate Reviews plugin. We work hard to offer great support to our users and of course, a great plugin!

  3. Mike McClellan

    Lots of good information here, but none of these quite fills my needs. I am looking for a plugin that will aggregate reviews from the major review sites such as Google, Facebook, Yelp, Trip Advisor, etc and allow me to display the best of these reviews on the website. It should display with a link to the original review site so that people can verify that the review is legitimate.

    Any ideas on where I could find such a plugin?
