Sharing Google business reviews

Is it possible to share your Google reviews in the same way as you could with the old Google+ classic interface (i.e. About Tab > All Review > Share Review)

 

thanks,

Nathan

Dear Nathan:

I have been searching for days trying to figure out how to share my reviews, which can only be found on the old Google+ page (About). When I try to share my google my business page today here is what I share:

This is the most recent version of my Google + Page and as you can see it does not include any reviews, it is also a very unattractive link, and I'm not sure if I am able to shorten it and share it effectively. https://plus.google.com/108493308789868448663/about

If I want to share my reviews, here is what I must share:

https://plus.google.com/108493308789868448663/about?gmbpt=true&hl=en&_ga=1.253232777.1464124952.1456...

An as you can imagine, I hesitate to put that link anywhere... it is very long and unattractive, I'm not sure if I can shorten it, and it's on it's way out.

I like you, would like to be able to share my google+ page, the most recent version, with my reviews intact and I would like the link to my page to include the name of my business and not a long set of unattractive numbers.

I spoke with Google my business today and they were not much help at all. They told me that they only way I could share my reviews was to share the older version, the 2nd one I posted above. I am very frustrated and find that support is lacking on many levels.

I hope you don't mind if I jump into your thread, because I am heartily asking for help with this same issue.

Hi Therea,

I don't mind you piggybacking on this thread at all - strength in numbers hopefully - although no response so far.

I'm glad to hear it's not just me who has this issue, I'm surprised more people aren't talking about it!

I found a tool which is great for sharing the link so people can give me a review - you might have seen it? https://www.grade.us/home/labs/google-review-link-generator

This works great for me - and I'm not too concerned about the visibility of my reviews - although yours look better on the Knowledge Graph as a couple of yours are showing - have you done anything to make that happen? Structured data?

My issue is sharing the existing reviews so i can embed them in my website - but I guess I'll have to continue using the old look Google+ and hope they don't hide that link anytime soon!

Best wishes from Kent in the UK.

Hi @Nathan D,

 

I was doing some research, and was unable to find a way to share the reviews section specifically on your website. Sorry that I'm not able to add any further tips here!

 

Best,

Liz

Hi Nathan,

 

Are you referring to something like this:

 

https://www.google.com/search?q=Digital+Davidson,+9+Beech+Hurst+Cl,+Haywards+Heath+RH16+4AE,+United+...

 

If yes, to get the link, search for the business, then go to Google maps, right click on the amount of reviews, copy link address.

Hi Grace,

I'm afraid not no.

There was a way to share your individual reviews so you can then embed them into a page on your website e.g. http://www.digitaldavidson.co.uk/seo-one-to-one-clinics-january-2016/ - as explained in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4HFucDlgy0

I found this pretty useful but can;t see a way to do it in the new Google+ interface.

Be good to know if this is likely to be added?

Yes, that was a great tactic to share reviews on a website. As far as I can see, it can only be done with classic G+.

Hi Nathan,

 

I was way off base, you mean something like this, right?
