    Can anyone think of any points worth adding to the “how to avoid the Google+ review filter” checklist I posted this morning?

    Excellent Resource Phil!

    I've been on vacation so I'm just catching up with things and I've got another 3 of your posts to read!

    Hmm, your list was very comprehensive so it's tricky to think of any more. Racking my brains trying to think of more but I think you have it covered!

    Re: Checklist: keeping Google+ reviews from being filtered

    This is my list of reasons why reviews get filtered (based on helping on the Google forum):



    • The same review appears elsewhere online (Yelp, a testimonials page on your website etc)
    • The person who wrote the review is a manager of your G+ Page
    • The person who wrote the review works for you
    • The person wrote the review from the same computer/IP Address that you sign into to manage your local listing
    • The person wrote the review from the same IP address as other users who left you reviews
    • The person tried to post a review for you several times on different dates (Ex: they wrote one August 5 and it got filtered so they tried again on October 10)
    • You've been collecting reviews in mass within a short time frame
    • All the people reviewing you are clicking on a link from an email signature
    • The person reviewing you has also reviewed multiple other businesses with the same name (if you have several locations and they reviewed all of them)
    • The person reviewing you has a completely blank G+ profile and has never had any activity on that Google profile before or after they left you that review.
    • You hired an SEO company to post reviews for you
    • You have an onsite review station (Ipad, Computer etc) at your location
    • You have literally no reviews anywhere else online but tons on Google
    • You are offering incentives for people who write you reviews.
    • Your # of reviews is abnormally higher than most businesses in your industry.
