Thanks Spadilla! We like tools. Especially review tools! :)

FYI Grade.us also has a good one: <a href="https://www.grade.us/home/labs/google-review-link-generator">Google Review Link Generator: How to Create a Link to Write a Review on Google | Grade.us</a>

Here's a post from a few months ago, after the change 1st happened that explains more:

These tools are handy for keeping up with the changes at Google. But FYI this one hasn't optimized for the changes *since* last November.

For example, now it's possible to construct URLs for an even more streamlined experience, e.g.

- This syntax will launch right into the review dialog if the user is logged in, or prompt them to "Login to Write a Review" if not: https://www.google.com/search?q=Polski Smak&ludocid=10294005916063502866&lrd=0x89c305a5c3fd20f3:0x8edba7d736bc1212,2

- Or this syntax will do as above, but also pre-populate the star rating: https://www.google.com/search?q=Polski Smak&ludocid=10294005916063502866&lrd=0x89c305a5c3fd20f3:0x8edba7d736bc1212,2,5

FWIW.

I was able to create a link from that tool that showed the pop-up right away. I personally do not like pre-populating star ratings, as it seems a bit shady. But, to each their own.
