Google Reviews: Two things to watch

January 25, 2012

Did you know that Google reviews are not always listed in dated order? That great new review can get buried on page three while that old nasty review stays on page one. This is one more reason to post highly professional replies to all reviews, especially the bad ones.

Also, several shops have had their replies to reviews disappear although the reviews remain. It is strongly recommended that you save your replies in a document so you can repost them easily if this happens to you.
