Reasons to Focus on Getting More Google Reviews

Google is the most popular search engine and it's an important place for businesses to be found. If you're not on Google, it can be difficult for your business to be found at all. Our online reputation management service knows how important it is to have a positive online reputation and Google is one of the most powerful platforms for online reputation. BlueJay Reviews has provided some of the reasons why you should be focusing on your Google platform for reviews (and some tips on best practices).

Why Google?

Consumers use Google. 

The majority of online searches conducted are on Google. People are constantly searching online for products or services to solve a problem they may have. Whether they are hungry, looking for a new vehicle, or need somewhere to stay when traveling, Google has the answer for many searchers.

Most popular search engine. 

81.5% of the public choose Google as the search engine they prefer. If your business isn't easy to find on Google, your consumers may struggle to find you at all.

Customers trust Google. 

Google reviews are peer reviews and the majority of consumers trust the general public's opinion of businesses. Word of mouth is a highly proven (and trusted) way to market a business and a Google review displays the opinion of other consumers that have dealt with your business.

Best Practices for Google Reviews:

We've established that being on Google is vital but you may be wondering how, if you're not already. Below you can find some best practices for Google reviews:

Claim your Google My Business listing.

Complete your listing to 100% accuracy.

Make regular posts on your Google My Business page.

Monitor and respond to reviews on Google My Business.

Try to gain more reviews (your online reputation is a factor in search engine rankings on Google)!

BlueJay Reviews can help you gain more reviews by sending out automated review prompts to your consumers. This is a highly effective way for someone who has had a recent experience with your business to share their feedback. The best part, a good review can be set to automatically publish to your Google My Business page, as well as other online review platforms of your choice.
