Have You Looked At Your Google Reviews Lately?


If you have not you need to go to your Google page as soon as possible.  It took me a long time to gather client reviews and have clients post them on Google.  Yet Google has been up to their ways of changing things and making things disappear.  After they had put some much emphasis on how important Google reviews are to a small business...well POOF it all kind of disappears.


See the video here and then go and check your Google Reviews and contact Google if you are having the same issue.

Please share.

Hi Ginny, I haven't either yet but it must be disconcerting to put all that work into it and have them disappear. Hopefully it was just a momentary glitch!

Hi Ginny,

I just started asking my clients to go to google to write a review for my service last month.

I hope they won't disappear.

Thanks for the heads up. I just checked and was happy to see they are still intact.

Ginny that stinks, but somehow it does not surprise me.  If Goggle was going to do that, they should have sent out a notice.

I think the other review page, it may be reviews that you've given.  (and if you have in fact done reviews, that may be under your personal acct.  I'm not positive, but that may be the issue.

Women of Westchester Working Together - Great suggestion, but unfortunalty not the case. If you go to Ginny's personal page, you will find the reviews you are looking for. (As you suggested.)

The reviews tab for Ginny Gorman's business should show reviews from clients. Or, at least, that's how it's always been. The Google+ page is tied into Google Maps / Google My Business, and that's where the reviews are taken from. There are even instructions to conntect your Google Maps reviews to your Google+ pages. The Google+ page has always been tied into Google Maps.


I help with Google+ for lots of clients, and unfortunately, screwups with Google Local / Google Maps are pretty common.


But good news Ginny! I just had a Google employee respond and he thanked me for the video that you posted above. I'll forward you his email. It just came in while I was typing this...

Thanks all for checking in on this...I think it is important that we watch all the time what Google is fine tuning.

Good morning Ginny. It is always interesting to read new stuff that Google is up to. The last couple of tweaks that they did actually ended up as a benefit for me.
