How does it work?
After you sign up for your account, myReviewsPage will attempt to find your business profiles based on the business name, phone number and address you provided. Then it will provide you with a dashboard you can use to monitor your online reviews.
You will also receive an email alert if you get a new review. You can turn this off in the settings.
What if my dashboard doesn’t show my reviews for Google? (or Yahoo, or Citysearch, etc..)
Depending on which profiles your business is listed in, and how closely the information matches what you provided, we may have trouble finding you in certain profiles.
If this happens, you can go to the “Settings” page to override these with direct URLs to your business profile.
For example, if we had trouble finding your Google profile reviews, and you know that you have a business listing there, you can just put the direct URL in the settings page and we’ll find it from there.
My Bing Listing doesn’t show up & the override doesn’t work.
This is a known issue that we are working on. Right now it’s just hit or miss to have the Bing business profile show up correctly in the Dashboard.
My Yelp Listing doesn’t show up & the override doesn’t work.
If you have multiple business listings on Yelp we recommend you to “claim” all your business listings as the business owner and delete the ones you do not want to use.
I don’t have any reviews on a service, can I take it out of my Dashboard?
Yes. You can hide any of the review sources from your dashboard on the Settings page.
Why don’t you show reviews from (name your favorite site here)
We’re starting out with just the major search engines, and plan to add more sources as we go along. If you have one that is important to your business that we’re not covering, let us know.
What is Foursquare, and how do I get my Foursquare ID?

Why and How to Claim your business listings
One of the key factors in having your local listing rank on the first page of Google (or any other search engine) is based on how often and how consistent your business is “cited” on the web. Google is always asking 3 primary questions in regards to local business listings (1) Where are you located (2) Can I Trust You and (3) Are you Relevant.
By claiming your business on all the major directories and search engines you are increasing the confidence level Google will have in your business listing. By having online reviews on your business listing will also show how “relevant” your business is in your community. Click here to learn how to claim your business listings.
