How to Write a Review on Google Maps via Your Phone or Tablet
You search google and you see business listings with reviews written on them. Now you make a phone call for service based on some reviews and ratings you just read. Soon you will have written one of those reviews and people will be reading what you wrote.
The process of writing a review has been made much more simple now with so many handheld devices. Up until about 2015 you had to go to an actual computer to write reviews on google maps. Now you can do it directly from your smart phone, tablet, and maybe even your watch.
If you do not have a Google account, we highly recommend you get one and start using it for all of the wonderful benefits Google offers us at no cost. All you need is one Google account and you have access to the calendar, maps, youtube, data storage, email and much more. The best thing is it’s free.

You can find the Google Maps app at the Google Play store on android devices and at the App Store on your apple devices. More than likely it came as a pre-installed app on your device but if not, you can quickly download it. Go ahead and open the app. The icon currently looks like a little map with a G on it and a red marker balloon. The icon has changed over the years and may in the future.
Now at the top of your screen you should see a search bar. Search for the company you would like to review. In this case, type in “Spotless Flooring”. You may notice more than one listing. That is fine, just select the one that you are looking for. Now you should see some information about the place including hours of operation, website, and more. Scroll down a little until you find the 5 blank stars.
Select the star rating that you believe the company deserves. Now a box will pop up allowing you to change your star rating selection and write a detailed description of your experiences supporting your star rating. When you are finished writing, click done. You’re all set and can search for another place to review.
Google Maps is used for finding local places, services, and directions. It also serves as a great navigator. I use it every day when traveling from job to job.
