    I believe that the only way to reply to people who leave reviews for you is right int he review tab: https://support.google.com/business/.../6001256?hl=en

    You can view and reply to all your Google My Business reviews from your GMB control panel. I recommend using keywords in your reply because I believe Google uses these reviews as ranking signals.

    Do you have any sources about this? Any studies or information?

    I'm just thinking, if I were Google I wouldn't want to encourage or reward that kind of behavior. But I have no sources other than my own intuition.

    I don't have any sources but my belief is that Google uses information from all sources to form a "keyword cloud" about a certain business entity which helps Google understand what the business is about. I always use keywords in any piece of content that I create for my clients (or for myself), be it reviews, web2.0s, or anything else that is crawlable by Googlebot. Even if the effect is minimal, it all adds up in the end.
