Just got head's up from Jade about a smallish change to Google reviews I wanted to share with you all.

Here is her post at the Google Forum about it. Short and sweet...

Removing reviews from ?A Zagat User

To show a consistent reviews experience to our users, reviews that are labeled by ?A Zagat User? are being removed from Google products. Reviews from Google users will still appear as usual, and users can still contribute reviews. This may affect the overall rating for some businesses.

Remember, verified business owners can respond to reviews or report inappropriate reviews.

Funny. Just goes to show how the Zagat reviews were a face only Marissa Meyer could love.
