    Talking Nifty tool to get a direct link to review on Google

    Hi all! I don't know if this has been posted before, but I found this nifty tool that let me quickly get a direct link to review client's businesses on Google. https://supple.com.au/tools/google-r...ink-generator/

    I know the way to get a link changes often and the links I have had saved don't work anymore, but this one does. Hope it helps someone

    Thanks Spadilla! We like tools. Especially review tools!

    FYI Grade.us also has a good one: Google Review Link Generator: How to Create a Link to Write a Review on Google | Grade.us

    Here's a post from a few months ago, after the change 1st happened that explains more:

    Re: Nifty tool to get a direct link to review on Google

    These tools are handy for keeping up with the changes at Google. But FYI this one hasn't optimized for the changes *since* last November.

    For example, now it's possible to construct URLs for an even more streamlined experience, e.g.

    - This syntax will launch right into the review dialog if the user is logged in, or prompt them to "Login to Write a Review" if not: https://www.google.com/search?q=Pols...a7d736bc1212,2

    - Or this syntax will do as above, but also pre-populate the star rating: https://www.google.com/search?q=Pols...d736bc1212,2,5

    FWIW.

    I was able to create a link from that tool that showed the pop-up right away. I personally do not like pre-populating star ratings, as it seems a bit shady. But, to each their own.

    Re: Nifty tool to get a direct link to review on Google

    Good point. Of course, it is better (and hardly "shady") if you can populate the rating from user input, e.g.

    1 star: https://www.google.com/search?q=Pols...d736bc1212,2,1
    2 stars: https://www.google.com/search?q=Pols...d736bc1212,2,2
    3 stars: https://www.google.com/search?q=Pols...d736bc1212,2,3
    4 stars: https://www.google.com/search?q=Pols...d736bc1212,2,4
    5 stars: https://www.google.com/search?q=Pols...d736bc1212,2,5

    This approach makes for great email signatures, etc.--always putting the "Review Us" call-to-action in your communications with customers.

    Anyway, we've just found that it helps to streamline the process as much as possible for the reviewer.
