How to Get More Google Business Reviews

Encouraging customers and clients to write reviews for your business can result in attracting more customer. With Google being the most powerful search engine, it makes sense to focus your review solicitation efforts on your Google My Business page.  As the verified owner of the business page you have the ability to manage your own information and control control what appears in maps and search results.
The shortest path to getting a review is making it simple and easy for customer to leave a review. This is accomplished by providing the customer with a link to your Google My Business page review form.

Here is how to get started:

Search for your company in Google and click the button that says “Write a Review”

Cut and paste the URL in the address bar of your browser. You’ll get a URL that looks like this https://www.google.com/search?q=bza+llc&oq=bza+llc&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60j69i61j69i60j69i65l2.2631j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#lrd=0x89c301d99c1495a5:0x3d03ac5abdd195d5,3

The last digit which is a 3 controls the style of the review pop-up box. If you change the 3 to a 1 then the pop-up box will contain your current reviews.  But if you add a 5 to end of the URL (…3,5,) this will pop-up the review box and already fill in the 5 stars.  Now, all the customer has to do is fill in the comment field.

https://www.google.com/search?q=bza+llc&oq=bza+llc&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60j69i61j69i60j69i65l2.2631j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#lrd=0x89c301d99c1495a5:0x3d03ac5abdd195d5,3,5,

You can use a URL shortener like Tiny URL or Google’s tool https://goo.gl/  which makes embedding the link a lot easier. After using this tool the long URL is now shorten to  https://goo.gl/qmFakp

How to Promote Your Clickable Google Review Form

  • Cut and paste it into your email and send it to clients
