SMS Text

Google Maps now lets users add ratings and reviews local business places indexed by the geographic facilities. Now is your chance to bash a recently visited restaurant, or to praise a catering services for serving you well.


To access the review functions of the Google Maps, just click on the “more info” link besides the search result link for the place you want to review.

From there you click on the “write a review” link and improve or discredit your favorite restaurants online reputation.


The Google Maps Review features covers all types of services and establishments that are indexed by Google.  From finding good doctors and dentists, hotels, bakeries, hardware stores, salons, pet spas, auto mechanics, plumbers, and more. For as long as these services and places are listed on Google, you can write a review. But then of course, some user responsibility is required of reviewers. Don’t just go on a reviewing spree even of places that you have not visited before.
