1. Full business name: Automotive-Art.com 
2. Current business address: 938 Vista Del Monte Way 
3. Current telephone number:  818-821-0845 (Pacific time)
4. Google+ URL: https://plus.google.com/109276179717306748988

 

I have followed the directions on how to generate a link for customers to post Google reviews.  It simply doesn't work.  

 

  1. Go to the Google Places API. - did so!
  2. Enter your business information in the “Enter a location” field at the top of the map. did so
  3. Click your business name in the list that appears. No list appeared  This is what I saw...Automotive-Art-Google-Probl.jpg
  4. Your Place ID will appear on the map, beneath your business name. Nonetheless, I inserted the Place ID into the string

Using this will open the promised window that will customers to leave reviews.  Using above URL takes you to a listing of the address, no window for leaving reviews.  Please help!

David, that link works.  I ask that you tell me how you did it?  If you followed the Google instructions, why would you have gotten a different result than I?  You must have altered the instructions or something different to get to the desired result.  Please teach me and Pam B!

Hi Pam, how do you create a support ticket for a problem like this?  Where do you do so?

Michael,

 

My "support ticket" comment was misleading. I posted a plea for help in the community (like yours). I received one response so far stating that because I operate a small business out of my home, I will not have a Place ID (?!); however, the technician supplied me with a link for others to post a review. The link was in Dutch though and, simple as it may seem, I can't get it translated to English. I suddenly feel very stupid!
