I can't create a link to give customers to provide Google review -

I sure could use some help....

 

I have followed the instructions on this Google page. How to Create Link  (to encourage reviews from legit customers)

 

The instructions don't work.  I don't see the business name like *Googleplex* in example (but I do see our business name on the underlying map).Automotive-Art-Google-Probl.jpg

 

 

 

I do see a Place ID, but when I put it in the formula like this:

 

http://search.google.com/local/writereview?placeid=ChIJfaRhMJxZ2YARpN544vhRNc8

 

I do not get a pop-up inviting reviews as suggested by the instructions.  I would like to know what's wrong that I can fix.

 

1. Full business name - Automotive-Art
2. Current business address - 938 Vista Del Monte Drive, El Cajon, CA 92020 (Knowledge Graph shows "Drive" but it's on private road "Vista Del Monte Way" which Google Maps can't find, so close enough)
3. Current telephone number: 818-821-0845 
4. Google+ URL: https://plus.google.com/109276179717306748988

Hi Michael

 

 

The instructions can be a bit misleading - you are meant to put your business name into the place finder not the address and when you do so, you get the following ID: ChIJfaRhMJxZ2YARlmLm4pU_Qac

 

I've just tested it, and this URL should provide a pop up review box: http://search.google.com/local/writereview?placeid=ChIJfaRhMJxZ2YARlmLm4pU_Qac

 

Let me know if that works for you.

Hi PriyaC, thank you very much for this advice.  Earlier I got some counsel from David S who recommended the following:

This seems to have worked.  And as I recall I accepted it as a solution.  I can't explain why his response is not included in this stream.  It should be.  I will retain your counsel as well.
