    Post Problems With Google+ Local Harm Small Businesses | MediaPost Publications

    Businesses building online reputations through Google+, Facebook and Twitter, along with search tools, are finding their hard-earned recommendations disappearing, impacting their reputation and rankings in search results.

    Since Google migrated Google Places to Google+ Local in May, taking Zagat along with it, adding reviews and recommendations behind the Local tab in social network, there have been problems. Some business owners complain new reviews don't show up and others mysteriously disappear.

    Linda says: Glad some of the bigger marketing publications are taking notice of the problem.

    As I said on my post I'm glad this problem is hitting the bigger media channels like MediaPost.

    Re: Problems With Google+ Local Harm Small Businesses | MediaPost Publications

    What is the solution to the problem? Small businesses put a lot of effort into procuring their reviews. When they are "lost", it hurts their return on (time) investment as well as their customer/client/patient relationship. "Why was MY review filtered? It can't be me, it must be you!".
