    If the idea is about link building that is a bad idea even if it doesn't violate Google TOS.

    Google+ profile is a single page with a depreciating link juice value every time you add another link. Adding a second link to you devalues your previous link to nothing. So you indeed might have more reviews but no more links "EVER!" ...and the reviews should be in your website.

    Hi Fathom, this is not about Link building. Its about, something Im led to believe is called The six pack ??? I was led to believe, perhaps incorrectly ???? That the more reviews / testimonials you have, the better placed your site will be within that six pack ??

    It is all about link building. Google+ is 1 link. Doesn't matter how many posts you add it is still 1 link.

    The more reviews / testimonials you have, the better placed your site will be within Google Place/Goolge Map is true but the infernce is the more toward unique domains not simply regurgiating the same domains. Links also added value. But unique domain links not just more of the same.

    You are misusing your Google+ account... Google isn't endorsing you, you are merely posting stuff that should be on the website. A 3rd party domain that offers reviews like Yelp or Yellowpages are what impact Places/Maps. You can certainly use Google+ in this manner but what a ****ing waste of a PR9 link.

    Notice the two websites beating you have NONE... which suggest your resources are poorly crafted.
