    I had some customers write about 10 reviews for me a few weeks ago. They still haven't appeared.

    You should be aware the google release a huge change to google places today. Everything is moving to Google+ now, and the old local places page will probably be deleted.

    Due to the big transition, reviews are probably disabled.

    Yes that's true I have just came to know that google places has been entirely replaced with google + local business pages. They won't delete the current reviews rather they are going to convert existing google places listings to google + local business pages.

    When Google+ and Google+ Pages for business were introduced a little less than a year ago many people in the local search arena began anticipating the day when Google would merge or integrate Google Places and Google+ Pages. Well, today is that day.

    Google Places pages have been entirely replaced by new Google+ Local pages. As of this morning roughly 80 million Google Place pages worldwide have been automatically converted into 80 million Google+ Local pages, according to Google's Marissa Mayer. It's a dramatic change (for the better) though it will undoubtedly disorient some users and business owners.
