    LBL 'Reviews'


    Hey guys,

    Does Google pull their reviews from other review directories ? Is there a way I can find out

    Hi DecksandFences,

    Yes Google Local, now called Places, pulls reviews from lots of other sites.

    I've seen them pulled from Yelp, Merchant Circle, City Search and some others. I don't have a complete list handy.

    There are some gotchas though. For instance for Google to find and pull the reviews and credit them to your Google Places account the name, address, phone needs to match exactly.

    Hope this helps and best of luck!
