    Five reviews not enough?

    My client reached five Google reviews but no gold stars appear on heir listing. Is five no longer enough?

    Re: Five reviews not enough?

    Last I checked, 5 was enough. When was the last review left?

    Re: Five reviews not enough?

    I'm wondering the same thing as Scott. It can take a few days before they appear. And there has been instances where they appeared at the three and four star range. It's not an exact science but five is when they appear 90% of the time.

    Re: Five reviews not enough?

    Welcome everyone,
    This is my first post on this forum, so be gentle

    Based on my experience with reviews (UK) stars shows up after 2-3 days and in 100% cases so far the score was 4.8. If you get 9+ reviews the score goes to 5.

    Just my 2 pence. Hope that helps.

    On a more serious note...

    I think I've seen a few complaints at the G forum where folks had 6 reviews - one I think even had 10 and no stars. But I don't know if it was a delay thing and maybe they showed up a couple days later.

    Re: Five reviews not enough?

    I think we might be in the age when Google will never be consistent, ultimately keeping us all on our toes and scratching our heads. I have noticed the 4.8 stars mentioned above and have never had an issue with reviews showing up within a couple days...Of course now that I have said that Google will now mess with me cause SHE has some serious telepathic powers sometimes. Thanks for the nice comments Linda. Our industry can be frustrating and I try to keep it light. Imagine doing local SEO for Yahoo.
