Google Gating & Compliance – Why is it important?

Gating refers to strategy in which business owners only encourage happy/satisfied customers to leave reviews for them. Google’s user content policy clearly indicates that negative reviews should not be discouraged – because the practice is unethical and misleading, and most importantly because it can be detected. Here’s how:

  • Google’s algorithm is capable of detecting review gating and can be triggered by a stream of ‘positive only’ feedback
  • Manual flagging allows users to report reviews to Google for further investigation

Rest assured that with the new update, all your campaigns are now fully compliant with Google Business regulations. Here are the current industry best practices that you can review. Additionally, you can read about the importance of Google Reviews, and how they affect your business here.
