How to Easily Earn More Online Reviews for Your Business (and Why It Matters)

It’s clear that every company wants to have a good amount of positive reviews, but companies in certain industries—usually anything aside from the service or food industry—often put them on the backburner. Sure they’re great, but they haven’t always been a priority. In the past you could get by with just having a review here and there whenever someone felt like saying something nice (or not so nice) about your business, but this upcoming year it’s going to be important that you really give your clients/customers a chance to leave an online review. It will be as much your job as it is theirs.

Based on many of the changes Google made last year, it’s clear that they are working to move away from keywords and more toward Google+ connections and yes, reviews. As a company owner you need to ask yourself: First, why are reviews so important, and second and most importantly, how can I earn more of them?

A Quick Recap: Why 2014 Marks the Year Reviews Will be Crucial

As discussed above, some of the moves Google made in 2013 have made it obvious that reviews are becoming more important. This upcoming year you will have different options regarding reviews than you’ve ever had before. Below are the two biggest changes we saw this year, along with a link to a full article on the topic:

  • Shared Endorsements. This isn’t in full swing just yet, but the idea is that Google will show reviews that came from those in your Google+ circles. If you searched for something and someone in your circles had reviewed something similar, that will show up right there on the SERP.
  • Review Extensions. This new feature allows marketers to feature a 67-character review that will show up right there on the SERP under an AdWords listing. Visit the Ad Extensions tab in your AdWords account and you’re all set.

Of course, other types of reviews and places you’ll find reviews, such as Yelp and Google+ are still incredibly important. The Google Knowledge Graph is only getting bigger, and reviews are a big part of that and how information is shown. If you type a major company name or a very general question into Google, you will see on the right hand side of the SERP a lot of basic information that jumps off the page, and reviews are included.

We went into great detail about these changes and why they matter in this article on Vertical Measures; so definitely check it out if you want to learn more about some of these new updates and why they matter.

Tips and Tricks to Earning More Positive Online Reviews

As mentioned in the first section, earning positive reviews isn’t entirely out of your hands. There are things you can do to make sure that you’re getting all the reviews you can. Below are some of these crucial tips:
