Create a link for customers to write reviews

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Google has a support page at which gives direction on how to provide customers with a direct link to compose a review.  But it seems to be broken... I found the Place ID for my business as instructed, and created the link. However, the link doesn't lead to reviews, it just runs a search on the business name and address.


Any advice on how to provide customers with a "review us" link?

for sure the answer @Tim Capper gave is a good workaround - and in teh past I have recommended it like Tim to other users too.

But since I dealed in an other case also with an issue about the HC article as it doesn't work in all cases I would really knwo from @Brian C about what busines and not working Plcace Id he is talking about.

Maybe there is any more issue to report to Google.

Therefore   Brian: please provide a link to your business and -if possible-  the not working place_ID alos


Thanks in advance
