It seems like online business reviews are everywhere you turn these days.
That's because they are. Business review sites are gaining status every day, and even search engines like Google have caught on to the appeal, and importance, of online business reviews.
Google has long dominated the search world, but now it's moving into the realm of business reviews too. In order to keep up with the popularity of Bing Local, Yahoo! Local and more, Google has enhanced their business reviews platform by transforming it into Google+ Local. With this change, Google has begun to include Google business reviews in both their Google Maps results as well as their search results—meaning all these reviews are more accessible, and visible, to customers everywhere. Moreover, Google has incorporated these reviews into its popular mobile phone apps. As a result, consumers have access to business reviews wherever they are - even right in front of your business.
When a business registers with Google+ Local, their business—and it's reviews—will appear alongside Google Maps and within Google's search results. This can be a great thing for your business, if you take advantage of it.
The better your Google business reviews, the better your business will rank in their listings. This way, if you have a number of genuine, positive Google local business reviews, you can increase your exposure and drive business easily. But if reviews of your business on Google are less than stellar, they can lower your rankings, tarnish your name, and even turn away potential customers.
Search engines like Google understand the importance of reviews and, like it or not, your business' listings can be affected by your Google business reviews. Businesses, especially local ones, need to recognize the impact that Google local business reviews have, so that they can take advantage of a great opportunity to attract new customers and start turning reviews into revenue. Google has quickly replaced the phone book as the go to resource for consumers looking for local restaurants, stores and services, so having good local business reviews for your company is essential.
Making sure that you have a Google+ Local profile is a good first step in taking control of your online reviews. Once you're registered and have a profile you're proud of, the next step is getting the positive Google business reviews you're looking for.
