Is it possible to remove All Reviews from the search knowledge graph?

Wondering if it's possible to remove Google My Business reviews altogether from a local business knowledge graph? Not just bad ones, but all in case a business would prefer to have reviews only on their site or a separate directory instead of in Google's search results.

Hi Tom, not sure i agree. I am seeing many (big) companies with no reviews in their knowledge graph. Question is, how did they remove it or why did Google remove their's and not everybody's

Hi, not sure I agree with you here. I see lots of our competitors (financial services companies in the UK) without Google reviews. 

 

Happy to share these search terms offline if you want.

Hi Reuben, in those instances you're likely seeing a brand knowledge panel instead of a local knowledge panel. These can appear for larger brands and will not show reviews since they're not tied to a single location of the business.
