This week on the Fusion One Marketing blog, we’re discussing whether Google reviews actually make an impact on your SEO.
With Google’s secretive algorithm always changing and varying, it’s hard to know what all has an impact on your SEO. Reviews have been an ever-growing topic in this arena. As of 2017, the impact of Google reviews on SEO has continued to increase by over 20% year-over-year. In a post-pandemic world, people are relying on the internet now more than ever to make purchasing decisions. The crazy part is it’s only going to keep growing as the world becomes increasingly dependent on the internet.
Studies have actually proven that reviews are one of the top five factors Google and other search engines look at when calculating rankings. Businesses genuinely can’t afford to hold off on collecting and managing their reviews.
We’re sharing practical tips to get more reviews as well as ways to effectively manage your reputation online. This starts by simply asking people for them to begin with and making the process as simple and streamlined as possible so they’re more likely to act on your request.
It’s also important to respond to all of your reviews, good or bad. This builds trust with customers and can help prevent a review from hurting your business.
