Google Maps and Google Local are testing a feature that’s sure to grab your attention. They are bringing back third-party reviews for Google Business Profile listings 🙌
🕰️It’s been over a decade since Google Maps last displayed third-party reviews—those reviews that aren’t posted directly on Google but come from third-party websites 🌐
Reviews from platforms like HomeAdvisor, Best Company, and more are now appearing again directly within Google listings 😲
In 2011, Google stopped displaying reviews on Google Maps that had been published on other websites. In 2012, location pages received a new design that featured only reviews from the Google platform.
But now Google is testing this feature again.
It seems they’re giving this idea another shot, and we’re here for it. After all, why not see if it adds even more value to the user experience? 🤔
Well, it means you’ll have even more information at your fingertips when exploring local businesses. Third-party reviews can provide a broader perspective and help you make informed choices 🧐
Of course, responding to reviews on different websites can be quite challenging. It’s extremely important to react promptly to user messages. To simplify review management, we suggest using Getpin’s solution.
In the Getpin dashboard, you can easily manage reviews on multiple platforms simultaneously. You can set up auto-responses and not miss any reviews!
