Collect more reviews
Enter your business information to generate your free Google Review link.
A Google review link is a direct link to Google reviews and your Google Business Profile. To get Google reviews, you share your Google review link with customers via text message, email, or other means. Your Google review link uses your business’s unique Google Place ID to associate customer reviews with your Google Business Profile.

Your Google Place ID is also tied directly to your Google Business account. This makes it easy to link people to your Google reviews page.
