Local reviews have a direct impact on local search rankings, so it’s important that your business acquires them. Reviews are a critical area through which to drive incremental traffic to your site.
It’s worth mentioning that this doesn’t just mean Google reviews. You’ll also want to focus on getting reviews on your Yelp page, along with other local directories.
It may be difficult to do, but it is important to encourage customers to review your business and to be completely transparent. If a customer leaves a bad review, rather than letting that damage the business’s reputation, reply to the negative review constructively and address the customer’s complaints.
