Can I Disable Reviews From Google?

| Aug 3, 2019

Google is an open space that allows people to review your business, and anyone with a Gmail can leave a review. Due to the nature of this platform, you cannot disable reviews.

Google strives to make people’s search experience the very best it can be. They want to provide searchers with the most accurate information possible so they can find what they’re looking for online. And that includes what others have to say about your business.

Furthermore, the content that appears in Google search, Google Maps, and your Google My Business listing belongs to them, not you.

That’s why you cannot disable reviews, nor should you want to. Reviews help your business show up first in a search.

Here’s why Google Reviews actually help your business:

So, in short, no, you cannot disable Google reviews. However, you shouldn’t want to. That’s because they’re a tool Google created to help you manage your reputation and foster better customer relationships. Plus, they also help customers find what they’re looking for online.
