    LOL Shonda! Don't blame you for being confused.

    Well 1st of all NONE of those are a Google+ Local page. (Which is the old Place page you still manage in the dashboard.)

    #1 looks like a personal G+ profile page, with you NOT logged into Google.

    #2 looks like a Local Google+ business page AKA Google+ business page with category set to Local. (Which has the social features and no reviews, so is NOT the same as a Place page)

    #3 is same as above but doing a post, or looking at posts - logged in.

    #4 is a search result, searching in the Google+ Local search engine (as opposed to regular search)

    So everything above is a G+ page or search result. IF there was a G+ Local (Google Places) page anywhere in the mix it would have a reviews tab.

    HERE IS A REALLY GOOD POST by Local Splash that has a chart that compares the different features for each type of page and shows the difference with screen shots. This should help you a lot!

    And for a more in-depth look at how confusing Google has made this and how badly she botched the branding, see my rant from June.

    Too bad Abbott and Costello aren't with us any longer. It would have been great to have them do a "Who's on First" routine with all of this.

    Yep Keenan, that Google magic trick with the "invisible Reviews tab"
    It's simiilar to the invisible categories and hidden images trick.
