Are Your Reviews being Filtered by Google?
These are some of the possible reasons:
Usually reviews get filtered due to issues with the IP address of the person who left the review. Here are the most common reason reviews are filtered:
The review was left from the same IP address that was used by someone who already left you a review
If your business offers public WiFi and you’ve logged into your Google Business Profile account from this WiFi, customer reviews left using that WiFi will get filtered
The review contains a phone number or URL
The review contains a word Google doesn’t allow, such as profanity or racial slurs
You hired an SEO company to post reviews for you
You have an on-site review station at your location
The reviewer is located nowhere near you or has never physically visited your location.
If none of those reasons apply, Google simply doesn’t have enough information about the user or they think the review violates their guidelines. They don’t always make it super clear as to why reviews get filtered, so this is our best educated guess.
What To Do Next
Take a snapshot/screen shot of your review including the person who left it and the date. If you know how they got to the review i.e., a link you gave them or just organic search etc. include that information. Please include the business name and URL of the Google Business Profile (find that in the search bar)
