How to correctly write a review on Google

The range of products and services on the Internet is growing every day, and so it is becoming more and more difficult for us consumers to classify which offers are really worth their price, and which ones should be avoided.

In principle, the opinions of customers in rating portals are of course very helpful, because one should think that if many people rate a product or service positively, it must be good and also meet one’s own requirements.

However, at the latest since reports about fake and purchased reviews, e.g. in travel portals about the quality of hotel facilities, etc., trust in such reviews has not necessarily increased.

1. What is the value of a Google rating?

Compared to many other rating portals on the Internet, Google has set the bar a little higher here.

Because, on the one hand, a rating cannot be submitted anonymously by people, and on the other hand, it is also prevented that artificial ratings are created by so-called bots through technical gimmicks.

Each of us is in some way always a provider, but also a customer, and we all want a realistic cut of opinion for our decision-making.

3. Do I already have a Google account?

If you have already logged into a Google product such as YouTube, Gmail, Google+ at some point, then you also have a corresponding account with which you can use all Google products and write reviews. Perhaps you have logged in there at some point, but you no longer have your access data?

That is also no problem. Just go to Google’s password help at:

https://accounts.google.com/ForgotPasswd

and enter your email address here.

If you use several e-mail addresses and do not know which is the right one, then simply try several e-mail addresses one after the other. If the email address you entered is unknown to Google, you will immediately receive an error message.
