Last month, I had wrote about some changes that were possibly coming to Google Plus Local. (If you missed it, you can read it here.) I just logged into our Google Plus Local page to check on our reviews and if anything needed to be addressed. To my surprise, the ratings of 1-3 were gone. They are now from Poor to Fair up to Excellent.
Google has listened to the retail environment and they are making those changes that I spoke of last month. I did log out to see if it was possible to write a review as an anonymous writer, but that option isn't there....yet. The gal that I sat next to on the plane did insinuate that it was coming that a customer would be able to write an anonymous review of a business.
I did notice the Zagit 30 point rating system was still in place, but in the review itself, it is in plain English. Now having words that a potential customer will see and understand will help dramatically instead of seeing the 1-3 rating and then the rating on a 30 point scale. This should eliminate any confusion for them.
I guess we will see in the near future what other changes we will have with G+ Local. I know that I am excited to see this and hope you all are as well. What are your thoughts on this small change so far?
