Frequently Asked Questions
How do customer reviews help my business and rankings?
The Search Engines and Review Sites want to provide local searchers with the best business listings in their area, because they want to keep them coming back to their site. To do that they use consumer reviews as the barometer since they can’t visit every single location themselves. So the business with the most positive reviews that are real and relevant usually will rank the highest.
