Review Posting is when a positive review is posted for your business across directory listings. Some of the more popular directory listings for businesses are as follows:
Google Business/Places, Yellow Pages, Kudzu, Insider Pages, Foursquare, Local.com, Yahoo Local, Manta, Mojo Pages, ShowMeLocal, BrownBook, SuperPages and many more… This review service does not include the posting to Yelp.com. This directory listing site has a very strong filtering process for reviews. Typically, about 90% of the reviews added to these sites are unnatural or fake and are easily detected and removed by Yelp
Studies show that 9 out of 10 consumers have used the reviews of a business in the last 12 months to help them make a decision about a local business. What the studies also show is that 4 out of the 10 consumers do this on a regular basis when dealing with any local business.
As consumers, we are growing more and more accustomed to reading the reviews of a business before we decide to hire them for a product or service. This can be said for all types of products and services – hotels, flights, cars, restaurants, doctors, plumbers and so on.
For a local business, this underlines the importance of reviews. Business owners should make managing their reputation a priority and ensure their online reviews are plentiful, positive and fresh.
