    Angry G+ Bug: Error from Mobile

    Google sure is impressing lately. Lost 11+ reviews so I emailed a few patients asking if they'd leave a review on Google for me. They're response? They can't load my page!!!

    I tried... on 3 mobile devices - same story on all mobile (iPad, iPhone, and another iPad). See attached. The same link I used in these tests, works from a computer:
    https://plus.google.com/+Julianthomasdmd/posts

    So, I tested the full URL (no vanity):
    https://plus.google.com/100673742880585881587
    No luck. Same story.

    Then I tested without the https (SSL):
    http://plus.google.com/100673742880585881587
    Same story.

    Soooo... no matter the device or URL, you get the error. Finally, the page does load, but to a page that HAS NO LINK TO POST A REVIEW!!! Check out my second attachment. No option on that page to post a review!

    Legit review get taken down, and no way to post new ones. Not good. *sigh*

    (Noticed after I took the screenshots, I wasn't logged into Google on my iPad. I logged in and 3rd screenshot attached (note no "Join Google+" at upper right). No difference.)

    Hi Julian,

    The links work fine for me. Did this get resolved on your end?

    Colan,

    Were you trying from mobile (iPhone and iPad tested here)? It works fine from a desktop session. Still today I viewed on yet another mobile device and still there appears to way to leave a review from mobile.

    Not sure if this is just my site, or all. Was just about to test some others.

    Hi Julian, I don't think it's your site. I think it's the way it is.

    I don't have time to read it all right now but see if this thread helps.

    No "write a review" option available on iPad/iPhone for Google+ Local?

    Re: G+ Bug: Error from Mobile

    My bad, misread some of your post.

    I'm seeing it fine from my Android Device. So must be iPhone/pad related. The post Linda linked to has some great insight.

    Colan - yup, Linda's post was spot on (Thanks Linda). Guess I'm late to this topic. Known issue or just the way they want it.

    I don't see a way to leave a review from your screenshot either. I was about to suggest Google was trying to get me to give up my iPhone.
