Is that a good idea and help to improve ranking?
I ask my clients and they promised to review for my business but they forget it .
Any one interested please PM me.

Good morning, Son Duong,

Doing anything which is not "real", whether that's to get more links or more reviews, is not a good idea. The way to improve ranking is to write excellent content so that you naturally get excellent reviews without needing to ask, from sources which are not forced.

As the Action Guide reminds us all the time, "keep it real".

Kind regards

Cath.

Hi Son Duong,

It is definitely a bad idea to post fake reviews. If Google catches you doing that, they will penalize you harshly. Same with Yelp.

I know it can be frustrating when a customer is very pleased with your service, but still won't post a review. But we must remember that our customers are busy, and most won't take the time out of their day to share their experience.

Be patient, deliver excellent quality, and the reviews will come.

Melissa
