    I have been reading a few posts in regards to how google places are now valued much higher than before for local SEO. But what about those reviews? I have been researching for a bit and see that companies with lots of reviews seem to rank higher than those who doesnt?

    Are reviews from authorized/reputable review sites part of the game now?
    Please advise.

    An "Elite Yelpers" review goes a long way.

    I see
    Do they really help SERPs in general?
    reviews from another review site?

    Google has his own reviews platform too.
