Supercharge your Review Site
Goliath is the perfect theme for review sites. Every post can easily be turned into a review for any kind of product – latest gadget, fashion clothing, travel destination, computer game or even sports equipment. All you have to do to get started is open the post edit page in your WordPress admin and set the star rating value. This rating will now show up on the thumbnail for this post in homepage, blog article archive, search results etc.
Another cool thing that’s unique to Goliath is the Review summary tool. The theme has a specially made custom Visual Composer block that allows you to list all the pros and cons for the product and rate each of the aspects separately. These ratings will be animated the moment this block enters users viewport.
It’s also very easy to embed a video review of the product. Goliath also has different types of buttons and lists that will sure come in handy when building your awesome new review site.
Monetise traffic with Goliath Ads System
Goliath has extensive features that allow you to insert advertisements in header, sidebars, posts and various other places in the theme. The theme supports different types of ads in multiple sizes. It’s easier than ever to set up Google Adsense ads or to embed an iframe banner for an affiliate partner. Other advertisement networks are also supported – the theme allows you to insert any ad network script and display it on front end. You can also use regular image banners that can be linked anywhere – this can be useful for advertising products sold right there in your site (using WooCommerce e-commerce software).
The ad management system is simple but quite powerful. You can enable/disable individual ads and their locations with a singe click. Adding and rotating multiple ads is just a matter of checking couple of checkboxes. It’s also super simple to add new advertisements or remove old ads. Goliath supports the most popular ad sizes and allows besides the predefined locations like header, gallery, below posts etc. you also have access to ad widgets and visual composer blocks for adding ads to posts.
