Among all of the other online ratings, there is an easy and fairly frictionless way to increase your Google reviews and thereby improve your Google ranking. Here is an easy way to create a link that will take people directly to your Google reviews and pre-populate the review with 5 stars.

Here's How (If you would like me to do it for you, just shoot me a PM)

1. Search for your business. Usually your business name and city and state will get you there. This is an example for one of our illustrious ASO leaders
NOTE: UPDATE : Make sure that the search you use is as specific as possible. Including the city & state or Google may take others to the wrong place (see post lower in this thread)


2. Click on 'Write a review

3. When it brings up a review STOP there. Go to the long URL at the top of the screen and add a 5 to the end.


4. Highlight and copy the entire URL.  (To copy, either right-click and choose copy or just type CTRL-C)

5. Go to http://Goo.gl  (Google's URL Shortener) and paste that long URL into the box (To paste, either right-click and choose paste or just type CTRL-V)


6. Click to copy the shortened URL and paste it somewhere you can find it or write it down (exact capitalization is required). In this case it's: goo.gl/WkHvCJ


7. Test the the shortened URL by pasting or typing it into your browser. If it worked, you should get something like this. Note that all 5 stars are already gold!


Now that you have the link, you can...

  • Add it to your website
  • Include it in your emails
  • Include it in your TextBox text message thank yous!


Of course, providing awesome service so they keep the 5 stars and add positive comments is in your court!🚗
