I am th owner of a small business, Lotus Rose Massage at 105 east 1st st. Port Angeles Wa. (360) 461-6326

I am doing everything I can to get better rankings on google searches and I still have not gained the "star" rankings. How does one get this?

Hi @Lindsay R,


It takes five Google Reviews for the star rating to show up for your organic search listing. Keep working hard and you will have them before long. You could also ask your customers to review you, if they wish, but do not press them to... or offer anything in return. Simply state "please consider leaving us a review of Google to help others know how we did." 


Kind Regards,

@lindsay R


I'm not sure to waht "ranking stars" you refer to


Frankly said I don't even know such a term "ranking stars" in GoogleMyBusiness.

And your reveiw score appears since oyu gathered fife reviews. - the score is actually 4.8 

Looks all good
