How to delete my reviews on Google? A simple guide
The Internet is a handy tool for gathering information about anything that interests us. One of the most popular sources for collecting this information is the Google reviews of other users, which you can find in the Google Business Profile displayed in Google Search and Google Maps.
You'll almost certainly have looked for and read third party hotel reviews, scoured Amazon reviews, glanced over TripAdvisor, and even opened up the Google Maps app yourself at some stage and made decisions based on them. Users write reviews on Google, especially when they are really happy or really disappointed with the service or a customer service team. That's why even a few negative reviews or fake review can seriously harm a company's online reputation (Great that you're unable to add an anonymous review)
However, you may want to remove your opinion from Google Maps. The business owner may have solved your problem, and now you want to remove negative Google reviews. In this article, we will show you a guide to deleting Google reviews in a few simple and short steps. Enjoy!
