Google Places easily influence our decision making process on services and products. With a higher percentage of Android users, the reviews found here is easily the first set of ratings people see for local businesses. With billions of monthly visitors, it is an almost no-brainer to keep a high rating here Reviews are so important that for every star a business receives, the business gets 5-9% increase in total revenue. That would be 25-45% increase if a business has an almost perfect (or perfect) rating on Google Places.
Unfortunately, not all Google listings receive good reviews from their customers. There are some that receive bad reviews from disgruntled customers or employees. Some negative reviews are straight up lies or have been written by people who have an agenda to see the business go down. Whether these negative reviews are legit or not, it doesn’t change the fact that businesses’ ratings drop because of these bad reviews.
If a business signs up with us, we will gather all the negative reviews we can find on the listing. We will then compile these to you as the assets we will start to remove. Although we do not disclose our methodology, access to your Google listing is not required for us to do our work.
Reviews which we can remove have to have a rating of at least 1 star with a a maximum set at 3 stars. We also have not found a difference in success rate between reviews with content and without content.
We also would not need to contact the reviewers of these negative reviews. Our process mainly is finding technicalities with their content, account, location, or their review history and pointing this out directly to Google’s support teams. As a result, about 40% of our requests are granted (and the reviews are removed).
This is so important because 90% of those users are influenced by the reviews they read. This means that if a business has a negative review or two, it could easily mean losing potential customers and potential growth.
