Hi @Seth K

 

Its against Google guidelines to have employees review a business.

Hi @Seth K

 

You cant especially if they do not meet guidelines, like employees creating reviews.

Hi @Seth K

 

Reviews are removed for a number of reasons:

 

https://support.google.com/business/answer/2622994

 

URLs in reviews
The same review appears elsewhere online (Yelp, a testimonials page on your website etc)
The person who wrote the review is a manager of your G+ Page
The person who wrote the review works for you
The person wrote the review from the same computer/IP Address that you sign into to manage your local listing
The person wrote the review from the same IP address as other users who left you reviews
The person tried to post a review for you several times on different dates (Ex: they wrote one August 5 and it got filtered so they tried again on October 10)
You've been collecting reviews in mass within a short time frame
All the people reviewing you are clicking on a link from an email signature
The person reviewing you has also reviewed multiple other businesses with the same name (if you have several locations and they reviewed all of them)
The person reviewing you has a completely blank G+ profile and has never had any activity on that Google profile before or after they left you that review.
You hired an SEO company to post reviews for you
You have an onsite review station (Ipad, Computer etc) at your location
You have literally no reviews anywhere else online but tons on Google
You are offering incentives for people who write you reviews.
Your # of reviews is abnormally higher than most businesses in your industry

Hey @Tim Capper,

Do you know if there's any way to inform Google that the reviews are legit? I have 2-3 reviews that came in from our clients. We received the email notifications for these reviews but they are not published on our page.

There is no way to inform Google, its all algorithmic.

Google does not give out information on algorithms, for obvious reasons:
