How To Leave A Google Places Review

10/24/2010


How to leave a glowing review of the quality services provided by Commercial Buildings Maintenance Inc on Google:

Google Maps Review Step 1
step one: you must have a gmail account AND a Google account. (it is possible to have one but not the other)

If you don’t already have a gmail account, please go here http://gmail.com and signup for one
it’s a good idea to list a secondary email that you use frequently to have the password sent to you should you forget it.

Google Maps Review Step 2

step two: once signed in to gmail, click on Google account in the upper right corner of the page

Google Review Box

step three, please type in the following: commercial cleaning
that will take you here: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=commercial+cleaning

(note this is worldwide search results, we’re currently ranked at #16 worldwide, on the 2ond page of worldwide Google search results)
there will be 3 “pink” listings (paid or sponsored listings)
then the top 3 “organic” or “natural” search listings
then the box with the maps, that’s the local business listings
Google just changed the name of this service from “Google Local Business Listings” to “Google Places”

Thank you very much for taking the time to jump through all these hoops!

Note to any business owner reading this post: If you cheat, Google WILL FIND OUT. You aren’t the first person to attempt to leave fake reviews. Google knows how many pieces of toilet paper you used to wipe your butt… any fake reviews will be “lost” when the algorithm discovers that the email address used for the review is owned by the business owner or if said fake review was published from the business owners IP address… every possible way to cheat the system has already been attempted and Google engineers have rewritten the code that runs the algorithm to screen out false reviews.

What happens if you do cheat?

Purgatory

Your listing will be degraded (not rank high) until the spam filter determines if those reviews are real or not.

You have no idea how many business owners call me to get their ranking back because they were overzealous in attempting to boost thier own rankings. Frederick Web Promotions can pull your fat out of the fire with the Google Powers That Be for $1500.00
