Consumers don’t even have to search for reviews – they’re right there. When a customer searches for a specific business type within their area. Google reviews show up front and center and all they need to do is click
One question I often get – do online reviews help with your organic results too, short answer YES.
Online reviews make up about 13 percent of what gets you in the local pack section
One of the most prominent and therefore sought-after places in Google’s local search results is the “local pack”: a set of three highlighted entries & maps pins
Reviews are just one of the top 7 factors determining organic local search rankings.
Here are some key review metrics that you can take into consideration:
*Review diversity (i.e., reviews on many different sites).Product/service keywords in reviews and *responses to reviews
*Freshness of reviews
*Review sentiment data
*Authority of third-party sites on which reviews are present
So now it’s time to go out & get you some reviews. Here’s an easy way for someone to leave a review – create a one click custom link and once they click here’s what they’ll see.
So quick and easy for them to leave a review in less than 60 seconds 🙂
Let’s make you a link if your own.
