Google offers a new feature for Google Maps, now you can now write your own review for any business, and add a rating from 1 to 5 stars as well (previously, Google already was showing reviews from other sites).
Google crawled sites like Yelp and included their reviews. “Don’t forget that Google Maps indexes a tremendous variety of businesses, and in a number of countries. Tell the world all about your favorite (or least favorite) doctors and dentists, hotels, bakeries, hardware stores, salons, pet spas, auto mechanics, plumbers, and more,” recommend Google Lat Long Blog.
To find a review or add a new one, just enter a location into Google (or Google Maps) and click on the “more info” link, then select the “reviews” tabs. Note that the review will appear globally, so when you write an English review this same review will also appear on e.g. Google Maps Germany (if the German search locates the business you reviewed).
