Google review link stopped working

I have a business, verified by google, and created my review link. Everything worked great for over a month and suddenly my link does not work properly. It opens the google page and has all the correct stuff in the search bar but the popup for the review box does not show anymore. Help, please...

Hi @Philipp S

can't confirm this.

Your above  link with the place-ID parameter  gives me this view and review option:

Okay, great, now it's working again! Must have been a Google mishap somehow...

 

Thanks for your time :)

 

EDIT: The day after: STOPPED WORKING AGAIN!! What is going on here?!

apparently https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/places-placeid-finder doesn't ven find and show a plase ID anymore for oyur business - not sure why the Place API doesn't work for your business anymore.

it doesn't when you search for ReHome Inspections over Australia but it does show up if I have Nova Scotia showing in the map.

[SOLVED]. Google will not load the review link if you are using a VPN. It suddenly occurred to me to try disabling my VPN temporarily and the link review then worked fine, in both Safari and Chrome.

 

Hope this helps!
