    Link directly to GMB "Write a review" box not working

    We started noticing that the link that directly takes you to the "Write a review" popup is no longer working. Found some discussion on the Google Forums saying this is an error on Googles Side.

    Anyone have a work around?

    Example:
    plus.google.com/11650456316764337513811/about?hl=en

    Re: Link directly to GMB "Write a review" box not working

    In your example, you need to add more.

    plus.google.com/11650456316764337513811/about?hl=en&review=1

    Try that and let us know if that works. I just looked at a couple of my clients and it's working.

    Re: Link directly to GMB "Write a review" box not working

    That link 404ed for me Scott.

    Here is mine and this format works: https://plus.google.com/u/0/11335837...hl=en&review=1

    Raw Link:
    HTML Code:
    https://plus.google.com/u/0/113358377118440631404/about?hl=en&review=1
    The main problem I find is some experts shared that trick and used reviews PLURAL in the string.
    It needs to be singular.

    Yeah, I was just using his url in my example. Just wanted to point that he was missing some of the extension.

    Had not read the thread at the G forum before I posted above.

    Just read it. Interesting...

    Thanks for sharing Justin!

    I hadn't either Linda. But it seems to be just fine for the clients that I have checked in both Chrome and FF.

    Thanks!

    @ Scott: The ?hl=en&review=1 worked perfect. Never thought to put those two together.


    @ Linda. Sorry, I just made up a link, so it doesn't work

    Oh ya ?hl=en&review=1 is the way to do it. Thought you knew that because that's what's being discussed at the G forum. Thought you were trying it that way and were saying it did not work.

    If having problems or looking for other (better?) ways to link to reviews, see this:
