Notification when visiting my business

My business shows up on Google maps and we have done all the verification and all the information on google is correct along with the map and satellite view. My question is....how do you get the business to show up as being visited on phone. For example when I visit a restaurant it pops up on my phone that I visited and I'm there. This doesn't happen for my business. Is there a setting we've missed?

A restaurant is a social hub and Google will assume you want your friends to know you are there. In case they want to join you. Its a posing opportunity if its posh.

Its not quite corect IMHO @Andrew H

 

such notification you will get not only for what you might consider as "Social  hub".

 

But the purpose of such notifications is triggering to gather edits,  impressions, reviews etc for listings a user visited or have been nearby.

such notifications are not triggered by settings in the dashboard of a certain business lsiting but driven by algos based on the known location of a visitor.

To explain more:

I also get such notification for business I never have used but have been "nearby"

Hi! 

 

Thank you for the answer, I understand that it's all based on algos. But, I've got not only notifications on review but also a promotion notification from a nearby restaurant. I think that's a good opportunity for my businesses too. Can you explain more about this? 

 

Thank you so much.

Yes, I would like this for my business too! How can we set it up?

Hi

 

You cannot 'set it up'.

 

And it only happens for businesses in certain categories, social ones like bars for example.

 

And there are various faults with the system which can negatively affect nearby businesses.

Hi Andrew, I received a request to review ALDI, so it can´t just be social places. It is a shop, albeit bigger than mine.

But anyway, does anyone know how I can send notifications to review a business?

Hi

 

I only gave an example.

 

Customer or passers by could be notified about your business. Reviews from passers by can cause problems, who have not actually used your business.

 

Real customers leaving real reviews is what you want to rely on.

 

Andrew.

Hello again,
Ok, I see. So how can we get this service from Google then?

Hi Helmut,

How would we work with the algos based on the known location of a visitor?
