Hello,

 

I have noticed a review of my business across all of my Google+ pages has disappeared. Do reviews expire?

 

Many thanks,

 

Felicity

Nope no expiring happens

But reveiws can get filtered for many reason.
Even reviews already published and visible for a short time periode can get filtered.

But I don't understand what do oyu mean by "a review of my business across all of my Google+ pages has disappeared"

Did you wrote the same review for several listings?
This could trigger filtering them

Hi Felicity,

You're having issues because you have created multiple Google My Business listings at places where you teach Yoga classes, and the same review was posted to multiple listings. Sorry but I don't believe you are even eligible for a GMB listing according to Google's guidelines: https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177

 

This would be the applicable section from the guidelines:

 

Ineligible businesses

The following businesses aren’t eligible for a business listing:

  • Businesses that are under construction or that have not yet opened to the public.
  • Rental or for-sale properties, such as vacation homes, model homes or vacant apartments. Sales or leasing offices, however, are eligible for verification.
  • An ongoing service, class, or meeting at a location that you don't own or have the authority to represent.
