      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Reviews Are Missing, Again!

Recommended Posts

I know a year ago Google local was having reviews disappearing. But I had 12, 13, then 17 reviews. It was very stable. But I just checked today and it at 12. What does this mean?? thanks.

Actually it turns out it all works except:

When I'm not logged in and I do a search, for a search term. the says 5 results instead of 23

 

If I'm logged in its ok.

That's interesting, Kevs.

 

Are you sure you're not dealing with duplicate Place Pages - one with 23 listings and one with 5?

Are the reviews added through google or collated from other websites? If it's the later, maybe it's something the websites they are collected from do to effect it.

Reviews are one of the buggiest aspects of Places...especially Google-based reviews. Review counts can be all over the place from one day to the next (though I've not seen so great a disparity in count as what you saw yesterday, Kevs). When dealing with reviews that go missing in action, it's always a good idea to wait a few days and see if they come back before suspecting that something is actually wrong.

Barry,

Thanks so much for linking to the Google Help Forum thread. There have been some really involved threads going on over there about issues with Places/Reviews in the last couple of days. My friend, Linda Buquet, of Catalyst eMarketing, has been trying to get feedback on an issue where editing profiles is making them LOSE data. Looks like Mike Blumenthal just weighed in on the review thread, too, with his well-known jewelry client.

 

There's a whole lot of shaking going on.
