Google's 3-Pack Tests Review Snippets

1 comment

Could this be a gift to make up for the loss of the sidebar ads? Google is testing snippets that show a single, randomly chosen review underneath ads in the 3-pack. More at this link.

Obviously, since this is just a test, not everyone can see them. Would be pretty cool if they went global though. Even if the reviews are randomly chosen, I can see it improving click-through.

Google+ no longer needed for Google reviews

Interestingly, it appears that having a Google+ is no longer a requirement for leaving reviews. We can expect this will lead to more reviews. Thus, those snippets, should they become permanent, will be more common.
