    I've heard about people using fiverr to get Reviews posted on their Google Place Page. Even if they're real reviews, coming from different accounts, and different IP's; more than likely they won't be IP's in the local area.

    Has anyone gotten in trouble with their place page? Can anyone confirm/deny this, or offer suggestions?


    Thanks. ~englandrm

    No reviews, then 15 reviews in a 2 week period all from Ips out of the area, then no more reviews after that. Does it sound fishy you?

    I can provide real reviews from real people in your area (in the US only), it's not cheap, but these are real people eating at your restaurant then reviewing. Restaurants are just an example, can be just about anything.

    I agree, it sounds fishy, but I was wondering what the consequences were of using someone on fiverr?

    How not cheap are you? This is not for my personal sites, but for clients; so heads up tehre is a middle man.
