If you care about how your business is portrayed through your reviews on Google, we’ve got some news you’ll be excited to hear.


Earlier this month, Google released a new tool dedicated to helping you manage your reviews all in one place. You can use the feature either to report a new review that violates Google’s quality guidelines, or to check the status of a previously flagged review.

Google Review Management Tool

Let’s say you need to report a new review. Select the second option, and the system will pull up a list of all your recently-added feedback.

Next to the review you want to report, click ‘Report a problem.’ You will be taken to a new window where you’ll have a chance to tell Google what the issue is.

Select the relevant concern and then click ‘Report.’ After you have reported the review, a new section will appear where you can view additional details about your request, and escalate the issue if the removal was not granted and you still feel there is a violation.
