Reviews? Why do I have to have honest reviews for better search engine rankings? Consumers listen to other consumers more often than years past. Millennials are influenced by their peers while gen x still like to speak their mind. 1 star versus 5 stars will determine if a consumer even goes to your site or local business. Don’t be a 1-star business. With VSmith Media Local Listings we can manage your listings as well as manage the reviews online. Our platform allows us to see the ratings consumers leave about your business and allow us to respond and handle interaction with these consumers.
In this area a recent experience for a client allowed us to improve their search engine rankings because without this platform we would have never known a rating had been posted. Luckily it was a 5-star ranking but nonetheless we would have never found it. There is the dark web few people discover without searching deeper than page 2 of Google or Bing. We happened to come across a 5-star review on our client because we dug into page six (no not the celebrity news site) of Google searches.
