What’s up, everybody, Jason Moss here in today’s video, this is going to be all about Google my business and their new review management tool. Yes, cue the rejoicing. You can finally report those bad reviews in a easy and safe way. No more flagging and hope they do something about it. They actually give us a tool to do things about it. So here’s how it works. I will put the link in the description below for the tool.
Very simple. You just want to make sure you are signed in to your Google account that is tied to your Google. My business, obviously. So when you come to this link here, you will see your Google my business in here. If you don’t, then you’re signing to the wrong Google account. All right. So I’m going to select my business here, and then you just hit continue.
And once this pops up, it pulls all of your reviews, shows you you the first part of the review, the rating, the posting date, so you can easily identify which one is the bad one. You can even go and view it on maps to further look at it if you have to. All right. So all you do is you click on report a problem. So this is really handy. If you get a bad review from someone that maybe never did business with you or maybe an ex employee that’s trying to wreak havoc on your business.
Very simple. This pops up here and you have a couple of different options. Then you simply hit report. All right, then you come back to here. All right. And once you report it, all you do is hit continue.
And it’s going to pop up a screen that says, you know, this has been reported. We will update you later on. And it even says right here, most are are processed within three business days and you can either come back to the same exact link, OK, so you can check back through the tool and it’ll show you like a pending or if it’s processed or whatever, or they’re also going to update you by email, check your email or return to this page.
So very, very simple. Like I said, there is there’s never been a tool like this before that Google has given us. You had to just flag it and kind of hope that Google might do something. This gives us a lot more, you know, a lot more green ability with it. I guess you could say a lot easier to put it right up under their nose and say, hey, this is not a real review. I’ve never done business with these people or this is a bad employee or whatever the the case might be.
So, yeah, let me know your feedback on this tool. If you get questions about it, leave it in the comment box below. I am happy to help, but let me know if you have any questions and I’ll see you guys in the next video. Thanks.
