My Google Reviews Link Doesn't Work

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My business has a page, and I followed the steps to create a link to share for reviews, which produced this:

http://search.google.com/local/writereview?placeid=<ChIJ8_g8RNaGa4cRpelfCJtYc7I>

 

The business is

A Peaceful Life Counseling Services

950 Wadsworth Blvd. Suite 120

Lakewood, CO 80214

 

I've check and rechecked, and it returns a 404 error. Anything I'm doing wrong? thanks!

You can use this: (Edited with correct URL thanks to @Helmut Geissler catching my mistake!! )

https://www.google.com/search?q=A+Peaceful+Life+Counseling+Services&oq=A+Peaceful+Life+Counseling+Se...

 

You can also add that URL into a Google Shortner ( https://goo.gl/  )  or even a Bitly URL so it's short ( and even trackable).    Give your customers the Shortner URL.

 

There are other methods of getting the URL you need and programs that create it for you, but what I provided is a simple approach that should not change anytime soon.

 

Hope others chime in with the Tools I know that are out there ( but they change all the time) to create the Review Link

a direct link just showing the window to write reviews is this one:

https://www.google.com/search?q=A+Peaceful+Life+Counseling+Services&oq=A+Peaceful+Life+Counseling+Se...

 

The link of @Eric Gehler shows the existent reveiws and a button to write reviews

There is no secret to create such links:

Here they explain everybody the "how to do":

(thanks @Eric Gehler for the hint on the previously mallinked URL - updated it now)
