How to write a Google Places review

Google Place reviews can help people find and build trust in your business. We’ve written a step by step tutorial that you can pass onto your clients/users to generate Google Place reviews.

We’ll use our friends at Gecco Blinds in Alstonville as an example. The whole process should only take a few minutes of your user’s time.

Go to in your web browser, enter ‘Gecco Blinds’ in the search bar and hit the Google Search button.

On Desktop computers, you will find the Google Places section on the right-hand side, next to the search results.

Step 3: Start your review
