Google review order?

How does Google order reviews? I can't for the life of me work it out! Is it Oldest to newest, visa versa, or something else or several things? If anyone can help with this very simple question I would be most grateful.

Hi Peter

 

viewing a listing in GMaps and clicking the link "x Reviews" you can yourself specify the method how they order teh reveiws.

Selecting "recent" you get them ordered by "last one first"

Hi Helmut,

Thanks for your help with this. Will this change the order across the board and be fixed for those looking at the reviews, or will it just revert back? Do i have control over the order?

nope - it just defines how the reveiws are rendered for the user selecting the kind of order.

At the same time two different users are able to select different criteria to get the review order displayed. 

No affecting of the listing itself happens

Do you know what order Google puts reviews in ie. Oldest to newest with the newest at the top, or visa versa?
