    Reviews combined

    For the past three months ive been hoping for google to combine all reviews from the major directories such as kudzu, merchant circle and so forth to be also listed on my listing, I dont know what to do anymore, as all my information is the same across all directories, anyone have any tips to get this going?

    Re: Reviews combined

    Are you referring to the "Reviews From Around The Web" section that pulls on some G+ Local pages? If so, this thread has some good feedback that might help:

    Re: Reviews combined

    Yes i will take a look at that thread, from my understanding, just matching the name adress and phone , reviews from around the web google should pull them in

    Re: Reviews combined

    That's been my understanding as well, justalfe. NAP consistency seems to be the only moving part. But Google just can't seem to "pull" the reviews in some cases, in some industries. For instance, InsiderPages listings for doctors generally only list the doctor's name in the "business name" field, rather than that of the practice. In those cases, if the Google+Local page uses the name of the practice - not that of the doctor - Google probably won't show the InsiderPages reviews in the "Reviews around the web" area. And obviously, Yelp reviews never will show up down there.

    Re: Reviews combined

    Google is everywhere BUT she can miss stuff.

    So I don't think it hurts to give her a breadcrumb trail.

    On contact us page or testimonials page if you have one, you could do a section at bottom that says: "Check out our reviews from happy customers, or leave us one."
    Then link to all the review sites, both to help get customer reviews AND to help ensure Google finds them all.

    (I stole that idea from my Local SEO template and training, which also includes a way to help ensure Google finds and follows all the links.)
