Google introduces a new design for how reviews are displayed on Place pages. “Now, when you look at a Place page for a business, you’ll see a new section called “Reviews from around the web,” that highlights reviews from a variety of sources, and helps you identify the sites that have high-quality, relevant information about a particular place. In many cases, this newly formatted section also provides a quick summary of what you can expect to see, including the number of reviews from each source and the average star rating that reviewers on that site gave a place,” explained Google.
“In the section called “Reviews from Google users,” you can also read the additional reviews that individuals have posted directly to Google Maps. And of course, you can write your own review to share your opinions about this place and help future potential customers decide.”
