When your company appears on a Google search, a prominent, positive review is guaranteed to help you stand out from the crowd. For example if you were to search for “Birmingham web design agency” and two companies appear, company A has 0 reviews but company B has 3 five star reviews, you would be more inclined to go with the latter due to the positive feedback that is displayed.
Finding the review page
The very first thing that you need to do is find the Google + page that you wish to review.
To do this simply search the business that you wish to leave the review for… for my example this will be SEO Nuts.
You should now see a maps listing on the right hand side of the search page. If not, click on ‘more’ and then ‘maps’ at the top of the page.
You should now see the business appearing on the left hand side. The next step is to click on ‘review’ just under the street view image.
This will now take you to the company’s Google + page and will automatically open up the review box (if you are logged in). If not, it will take you to a log in/sign up page.
If you do not have a Google account, read how to create one below.
The final step is to write your review and leave a star rating for the services that company offers… 1 being bad and 5 being excellent .
The first thing you need to do to make a Google account is head on over to the Google homepage, (Google.com, Google.co.uk, etc.) and click the sign up button at the top right of the page.
You will now be taken to a log in page, here you need to click ‘Create an account’ at the bottom of the page. Now you will see a page that will ask for all of your personal information such as name, phone number etc. you need to fill all of this out to make a Google account.
You may now be take to a phone verification screen to confirm your number. You will then receive either a a phone call or a text message that will ask you to confirm a code generated by Google.
After confirming your phone number you will be given the chance to create a Google + account. Click create account and you are done you have successfully created a Google + account.
