Review window does not pop up when I create a link using placeID

I have created a link for a client that she

 

would like to share with customers so that they can write reviews on Google, but when I put the link in a browser, the review window does not pop up. I found another link that looks like mine (different place ID) and if I use that link the review window does pop up.

Link I created:

Link I found in another thread that seems to work:

Why doesn't my link work?

 

Thank you!

Hi @Debbie K  

your listing in question is affected by the same "illness" as the listing (and its reviewing link based on a correct PlaceID) we have spoken about  in this thread:

No "Write a Review" option showing and Create a link for customers to write a review not w...

Same for  you: somebody needs to post a triggering review to enable your placeId based  reviewing link starting to work.

 

If you  would like having me to be the one enabling your reviewing link lemme know.

@Helmut Geissler - what is a triggering review? Do you mean someone has to write one review before the link will work? When you say that you could enable the reviewing link, how would you do that?

you got it @Debbie K

 

a "triggering" review is just any review posted via GMaps.


Any one (not only me) can do it

@Helmut Geissler - Thank you for your help. My client and I will try to find a customer who can leave an actual review of the business.
