Getting too many reviews too fast - Need proof Google will penalize/remove...?

Hello,

 

I couldn't find a specific answer/proof as people have only stated their opinions but can I get some proof that Google will penalize or remove reviews if one were to get too many too fast?

 

Thanks!

you wil very likely NOT get any proof at all.

But all we know is by our experiences:

Google is using filtering algos and this algos filter reviews for many reasons one of it is if a business will  get more reviews in a certain time period as the average business of your industry get them on their listings

I figured google would not share as people could abuse the system but from your experiences what would be penalized?  Will your reviews be filtered out and dropped?  Will your Google Maps ranking drop?  Basically what the worst that can happen?  Thanks!

some (not necassarily all) of the reviews might get filtered
