How to Link to your Google Business Page Reviews
UPDATE: 15th Aug 2017
Google has created a simple way to direct link to your reviews for customers:
Create Review Link Manually
Personally I would take the 10 minutes to create your review link manually. If there is an update from Google and the Generators ( although very handy ) are not updated by the webmasters, then you have a defunct link and have to search for another.
You will need your:
- Search Query: Business Name, as it appears on your business page
- ludoCID number
- LRD number
- add ,3,5 to end of search query.
Locate CID & LRD number
Locate your business in Google Maps.
Scroll down the business information to view the reviews
This will open up a new window to display the reviews.
The URL in the address bar will contain the CID and LRD numbers.
Create your link beginning with a search query:
Add your business name:
Add ludoCID number:
Add LRD number:
Add ,3,5 to end:
If you are happy, you can use the entire URL or head over to Google Url Shortener to create a tiny URL.
If you do not have any reviews then you will need to use another method to locate your LRD number by going through your business page dashboard >> See UKSBD Terry Simmonds Steps
Still Want to Use a Review Generator
Enter your details and Grade.Us will offer you a selection of links.
Supple use the Map api to extract your details.
Add your map url and pleper will generate a review link. Some of the variants are now redundant.
