  • We limit reviews to one per six months per reviewer per business
  • When proven false, we remove reviews quickly; this was done in many cases over the past year.
  • We notify you, the business owner via email of anything less than satisfactory, so you can respond immediately, a quick “owners response” is critical to managing a good reputation.
  • We have a 48-hour hold on negative reviews to allow your business time to read the review and report inaccurate or false reviews before they are automatically posted.

  • Profanity or threats
  • Personal insults
