    G+ Local listing indicates that there are 2 reviews....but....

    I have come across a few listings that say "2 reviews", or whatever amount, yet there are no reviews on the listing.

    Here's an example - https://plus.google.com/100335221853527637944/about


    Anybody come across this before? Any thoughts as to what's up with that?

    I 'think' it can happen when someone rates the business, but does not actually write any review text.
    So they just rate excellent but don't type any comments.
    (Not absolutely certain, think I read it somewhere plus it would explain it.)

    Aha, I just tested that out. It looks like you are absolutely correct
