The review, social and search relationship

There is a crucial relationship between online reviews, social media and search results. Google, the search giant, is putting more and more weight on reviews when deciding which businesses to show first in search results. It even includes their own Google+ reviews right in search results so that your business is always compared right next to your competitors, whether on desktop, mobile, or even map searches.

In local searches, Google features only three top results ranks them based on a number of factors. Two of those factors are online reviews (both quantity and quality) and social media activity.

RatingsMax takes a holistic approach to improving your rank in both review sites and search engines. More and better reviews are created. Those reviews are shared to social media creating greater brand awareness, social media activity, and click-throughs to your website – which in turn creates higher search rankings.
