This is the seventh post in our Reviews FAQs series where we answer frequently asked questions about online reputation management.
With so many different review sites for local businesses out there, you may be wondering which sites you should focus on managing. Here are our recommendations:
- Yelp: With an average 25 million monthly app users and 72 million monthly web visitors, Yelp is a great place for local reviews and is fairly easy to claim and manage.
- Google My Business: It’s important to claim and update your business listing through Google My Business so searchers see accurate information about you on Google Maps and in Google Search. But it’s also a great place to manage and respond to reviews.
- Industry-Specific Review Sites: There are many review sites specific to industries that may be worth looking into. For example, Healthgrades is a big review site for the healthcare industry, and Angie’s List (which is free to join now) is oftentimes a go-to place for the home services industry.
