    Found this while on a contracting site forum, wanted to share.

    Seems like a fair way to do it to insure against fake online reviews.

    WTF?!? Oh well, my bad.

    Anyhow BBB is now entering the online review game. It contacts the business to make sure this has happened to be a consumer. Than the computer looks it up and down to make sure it isn't in coohoots as a fake review.

    Sorry I was cutting and pasting, the phone rang and I was trying to pawn off some residential electrical work to a fellow sparky next town over. Somehow the whole thing turned black. I tried to edit it, but as you can tell, I am new to this and don't know. Apologies.

    I wanted to share this as this important to to the local seo crowd.

    When you go to edit your post, highlight the text and then click the text color button dropdown (the arrow by the capital "A"). Then choose "Automatic"

    I thought that too but I think it was done inadvertently by copy/pasting

    Thanks for attempting to make me understand what I had done.

    Anyhow, do you think a BBB review system will have more pull from the metrics with this system? I believe I recall hearing that the BBB has some potency as a referring link on some post or program concerning seo specifically the local kind.
