3. Select your review snippets

Choose the review snippet you’d like to feature by clicking “Edit Snippet” at the top of the page. Scroll through the list of reviews and choose one that showcases what makes you unique.

Once you’ve found the perfect review, click the green circle to the right and see a highlighted sample of your snippet.

Click “Submit” to save your changes.

4. Add a title for your review snippet

Next, add a title in the white box at the bottom of the page. Keep your title short — 30 characters or less — and be sure it summarizes the full review snippet featured below.

5. Select a photo

Feature a photo alongside each review snippet by clicking “Edit Photo” and selecting an image from the gallery of Management and Traveler Photos. Choose one that corresponds with the reason you’re featuring. For example, if your review snippet highlights half-priced oysters, the photo you select should also be of oysters. Click “Submit” to save your changes and preview this reason.

Tips and Best Practices for Top 3 Reasons to Eat Here

  • Opt for review snippets from past diners – Tripadvisor visitors trust and love to hear what users like them have to say.
  • If you prefer to add your own custom description, you can do so by clicking “Write your own description” and entering your text in 70 characters or less. If you choose to do this, then you must do so for each of the three reasons – you cannot mix some user reviews with some custom descriptions.
  • Highlight three diverse aspects of your business. For example, spotlight your atmosphere, drink specials, and most-popular dish – rather than just selecting three dishes from your menu.
  • Add your Top 3 Reasons in other languages by using the language drop-down on the right. Just select the language you’d like to add, and follow the steps above. 
  • If you don’t have time to finish all three reasons, you can save your changes at any time by clicking “Save as Draft.”
