    I have a client that sorely needs reviews from citation sites like yelp, yellowpages, angies list, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this done quickly and without getting the reviews themselves removed?

    Hi,
    my tool should be released in about two weeks, if you can wait about two weeks i will be selling it in the BST section according to the forum rules.

    I do this for clients regularly for $99 per month, unlimited reviews posted to half a dozen different sites.

    You can check out Fiverr, I know people there will do reviews.

    Yah I saw that. Seems the going rate is $5 for just 1 or maybe 2 reviews.

    If this client is an established business then you want to get recent happy customers to review. That is what I do once I have the business set up in places etc. Set up an email template for them and get them to send to recent customers with some links to your preferred citation sites.
    Otherwise get them to start asking new customers to review them for some ort of discount or voucher.

    If they are not established then I suggest the "for hire" section on this site or the WF.

    is it good to review 100 reviews using the same IP address? will it get deleted?

    it is a bad idea to use the same IP, use unique IP for each review if you want them to get approved and stick.

    What about this scenario, I want to review a UK dentist but I am using US proxy.. do you think it will affect the approval rate?

    reviews don't really have as much effect as some of you think.

    think about it, don't you see sites outranking others in places listing that have no reviews while the ones they are outranking have 1-9. the real way to rank is with backlinks to the sites that are listed on the places information.

    Only reviews will not help....try to find as many citations as possible, first from your competitiors, second from other niches in your local area, third from those popular qype, panoramio, YT and so on.
    Optimise the listing with photos, videos etc, use kwd rich description etc. There are many ways in which you can get high rankings, but only with reviews? No way.

    PS: reviews should definitely be done from different ips, no matter what country they are.

    If you plan on posting reviews over the long term you should consider lblrobot. It works well posting to the major review sites that affect most cities.

    wow lblrobot is 97 per month, i guess if it does a good job it is well worth the price, but damn thats a bit of coin.

    johnniew is your tool going to do something similar to what lblrobot does??if so count me in, looking for a way to automate this process for my clients. i was actually going to get a tool made to do it but looks like you beat me to the punch. good on ya.

    there is a free tool at (w3).whitespark.ca/local-citation-finder/# that will allow you to find citations for keywords or a business phone number. I usually type in the phone number for the businesses that are getting front page google results for my main keywords and once the results are in I scan the list to find sites that I can get a good/google friendly citation from.
