Duplicating reviews to Google My Business

Hi,   

I wondered if someone could clarify something. If you are collecting reviews with a third party review site and your reviews are hosted on a review page, if you then duplicate these across onto your Google My Business page as reviews, is this duplicate content?   

 

How will Google see both of these sources? Will it ignore the Google My Business one? And will it incur a penalty? 

 

Thanks

Hi Emily

 

You can't duplicate reviews from another site onto Google My Business as all those reviews would need to be either entered by the business owner account (against Google guidelines) or fake accounts (again against guidelines).
