I am testing out this page because some of the family have asked to be able to post reviews for the preschool. I just did a test review however when I view the page (not signed-in) I don't see much of the info. Do all of the viewers out there have to be logged in to see the page? That doesn't sound right.

Thanks, Lorrie

I can see the page ("
https://plus.google.com/+GoodShepherdPreschoolBlairstown/about") but don't
see any review.
And for the latter there is a reason:
You are the page owner of the page.
And posting reveiws for the own page is agaist the guidelines and such
reviews will filtered

I bet you can and will see my test review coming soon though

That's not what I am going for. I want people in the community to see reviews without having to log in. My review said "this is a test", that's all. That was the only way I could test to see if I could see it by going on the page without logging in. When not logged in, no reviews are seen. I am looking for a way to go around that.
Please delete your "review" from my page.
Thank you,

My review also was a "test only" - and since you confirmed seeing it I now
deleted it.

btw reviews are not intended to get seen "by the community".

They appear if searching the business in question on GMaps or Googling for
it.
period.

Hi @Lorrie S

 

As @Helmut Geissler has said, leaving reviews for your own business is against Google guidelines, but I think the main issue here is your original attempt to see what the public see when they go to your page.

 

when you looked at the page, does it look something like this?

This is the 'new Google+' listing view and as you've pointed out, there are no reviews and limited information on it. If you go instead to a search for the school, or the Maps listing itself then you'll see reviews listed (the image below is of a cafe, since you don't have any reviews at the moment)

Yes, it looks like that. When someone isn't logged in that's what they'd
get. I am trying to send people somewhere, where they can leave reviews,
because they have requested to do that. I don't allow any outside input
on the website itself, since this isn't my full time job and I worry
about spam and viruses, etc.
I just don't understand why a Google plus page exists, if not to give
info to people who look for information about it.

Google is i the process to separate GoogleMyBuisness and G+

This process isn't yet completed.
To write (or read) reviews it never was their intention to do this through
the G+ page only.

Even writing reviews is described as a matter of searching the business on
GMaps:
