Removing old reviews after purchasing a business

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello - 

 

My business partner and I recently purchased a business which received some bad reviews while it was under the previous owners. How would I go about having those removed? I can provide proof of business sale and other information through e-mail.

 

Thank you!

Hi @mattmclaughlinnet

 

You will want to contact Google My Business support via this form or twitter (you can contact them on other social media channels as well) and ask them to for help. 

 

They do not have to remove them if the business address, business name, and the industry have not changed, but sometimes they do when presented with strong evidence, so, it's worth a shot.
