How to become an independent review website?

We are also looking to become an independent Reviewer as we have a product that does Ratings and Reviews specifically for this function and compete against the listed Independent reviewing companies.  I've contacted Google and spend hours trying to find out who to speak to on this subject.  Google said to me there is no known process to join this list.  However, someone owns the list or it wouldn't be posted.   If someone knows who the key contact is please post it.   Thanks

google has yet to publish any such definitive information with respect to
a ratings-site's approval or related contact details, despite being asked

many many times before -- such information held by third-parties is likely

to be proprietary or confidential.

google tends to contact the third-party ratings-sites
directly if they see promise as a potential supplier.

the best likely course would be to look to the current
set of approved third-party sites for common features
to implement and establish a robust customer base.
