Reviews Not Showing

I asked some customers (via our CRM) to leave some reviews. 


Three of them posted reviews yesterday, which was great. All from different countries.


Another customer left review this morning. But it's not appearing. No notification received. He showed me a screenshot of the review from his end. But nothing showing up in public.


Everything I've done is totally legit. This customer has a genuine, longterm G+ account. No incentives were offered. Etc.


Can anybody help?

And can you provide the exact (and entire) content of the not published

@Colman W

unfortunately I can't see in your post any screenshots.

So I tried finding the business - but I'm not sure having found the correct one.

Are you talking about the business in Dublin - showing actually five reviews with this link?



If so:


I see at least three  possibilities getting the review from Mark McCaffrey for filtered:

1# (most likely) he simplemente mentioned your business name in his review - would be a violation as your name is considered by the review algos as a kind of (forbidden) URL. We have seen this here happen often for similar named business as yours is one

2# I saw you got five reviews in a week.

Supposed Mark posted the review in the same week it could be considered as a kind of spam 

3# Mark posted the review not only through G+ for your business but on FB or Linkedin or some other platforms too.

(there are many other reasons possible also)


BTW: Is this the profile of  Mark McCaffrey you got a review from?
