Pattern #6: Customer Star Ratings
Pattern Author: Jakub Linowski - Founder & Editor @ GoodUI.org
Customer Reviews Social Proof
The patterns suggests to show a summary of customer reviews summed up with a star rating (or average number out typically ranked out of 5). Other elements which can be shown beside a customer review may include: a customer’s name, recency time stamp, the review itself, a badge/logo of the reviewer source and positive/negative review counts. It seems that the more information which is shown along with the review (similar to testimonials), the more credible and authentic the review may be perceived.

For each pattern, we measure three key data points derived from related tests:
REPEATABILITY - this is a measure of how often a given pattern has generated a positive or negative effect. The higher this number, the more likely the pattern will continue to repeat.
SHALLOW MEDIAN - this is a median effect measured with low intent actions such as initiating the first step of a lengthier process
DEEP MEDIAN - this is derived from the highest intent metrics that we have for a given test such as fully completed signups or sales.
