    GMB Reviewers Now Link to MapMaker profiles

    Not sure exactly when this started, but clicking on a reviewer name in a GMB review now takes you to their MapMaker profile (here is mine: https://www.google.com/maps/contrib/...11791/reviews/)

    Doesn't look like there is a way to flag a bogus profile, either. Makes sense, because you no longer need a G+ account for reviews.

    Impact?

    Interesting. I've sometimes gotten luckily with G+ profiles with a review for a dead listing letting me find more info when I'm troubleshooting... having this change might make troubleshooting a little harder since that style of profile isn't indexed. Not sure what the other impacts might be.

    Very cool stuff. I don't think that would be considered a Map Maker profile though. Unless I am overlooking something. That is a Google Maps Contributions profile page. Edits you make in Map Maker do contribute to the overall score and level, however, the profile page lives in Google Maps.

    Here's an example of a Map Maker profile - https://www.google.com/mapmaker?gw=6...61847835859978

    Yes, the URL for both the review profile and the mapmaker profile is /mapmaker, but they don't currently seem to be linked.
