The most important review site on the web? The one that the last Bad review was left on! That statement puts value in EVERY review site on the web. The most powerful review sites would be the ones served on Google’s Maps Page for you business.
With Google rolling out new algorithms for serving up business review sites, I looked at about 50 dealers Google Maps Pages across the US to see who they were serving up. This was not scientific, I did not keep count. BUT these review sites seem to appear on Googles Business Maps Pages in this order of frequency:
Google Local Business Listings
Yahoo! Local Listings
Other reviews sites I am aware of that show up in search on dealers name are:
It appears in Canada they are NOT serving reviews yet.
So my questions are;
1. Are there any other big players out there?
2. Anyone know the terms of agreement of these sites?
3. Which sites ALLOW multiple reviews from an IP Address? So We CAN walk the customer to a dealership computer to leave a review for the business?
4. Anybody out there have customers leave a reviews from the showroom? If so what sites do yopu use?
I am in no way looking to work around the terms of agreements of any review site. If they allow you to do in-house reviews, EVERY store should have 20 positives reviews on that site in 1 week easy/peasy.
What are your thoughts? Best practices?
