I have tried to create a link for customers to leave a review and it does not work.  I followed all the steps and when I try to access it the message reads -  did not match with any results. Can I get some help please?

Hey @Anna R

 

I solved the riiddle !

aAll what you did was correct - but you obviously copied the displayed code manually.

 

And you copied the third character of the code with an error: copying it as a "small leter l as  for ""label - correct would be the allcap I as for India" 

See the solved riddle:using an other font;

So finally this is your vaild code:

Have oyu applied exactly the steps of this HC article? https://support.google.com/business/answer/7035772?hl=en

 

  1. Go to the Google Places API
  2. Enter your business information in the “Enter a location” field at the top of the map..

what search string for your "business information" did you enter in the “Enter a location” field at the top of the map?

I have followed the steps in the link.  I entered my business name and my business came up in the search.  The place id is ChlJVw3XFqHWKogRT-uu1XYZir8 but when I try to access it the system does not recognize it.

is this your listing?: https://goo.gl/maps/XaFwC6PCfVC2

If it isn't what is your full business name and address or provide any GMaps Link to oyur business or just follow 

My placefinder business site:
http://get-your-working-place-id.business.site/
 
To figure out your place ID I need the filled form "place ID for your GoogleMyBusiness"  only

@Helmut Geissler

That link is not for my business.  

My full business name is Vintage Tea Party Fine China Rentals.

The placefinder business site link is a bit too confusing and I was not able to do it.

I filled out the form for place ID. 

This is the URL for my business on google maps

https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Vintage+Tea+Party+Fine+China+Rentals/@43.9733341,-79.4757015,17z/da...
