Google Review Guidelines Now Disallows Discouraging Negative Or Selectively Soliciting Positive Reviews

Google has updated its Google Maps contributor guidelines to disallow “discouraging or prohibiting negative reviews, or selectively soliciting positive reviews from customers.”

This line was added to these guidelines under deceptive content and fake engagement section. Here is the new line that was added, “discouraging or prohibiting negative reviews, or selectively soliciting positive reviews from customers.”

The blue highlight is what was added, click to enlarge this screenshot:

I spotted this via Colan Nielsen on Twitter who wrote that he “received a notification that this page was updated. Not really new information but worth noting since Google is being more explicit about it.”

A few weeks ago, Google added to its guidelines where businesses were not allowed to incentivize those who leave negative reviews to remove those reviews.

So it seems Google is getting tougher with the review guidelines, really tough.

Google has its own street view backpack, which is more impressive to look at.

Google Internal Menu System Tracks Food Preferences Tweets

A Googler shared screenshots of the output from the Google internal menu system where it told her that one day she avoids salades and then she must have had some salads to correct that and the next day it say she enjoys salad. I am just amazed Google tracks the food Googlers eat and offers suggestions.

Here are those tweets embedded:

This is really not a photo of the day but close enough…
