A disaster / unfair / crushed / costs business, not following guidelines –
show how you can report a violation
BUT like loads of others, you have probably done that and nothing has been done by Google

Before I show you what seems to be the main solution and a Google workaround to get a review removed – a quick question which is going to help you
Which of these listings would you choose? if its A the top one then put A down below in the comments, B the middle one or C the bottom one…we will come back to the right answer a little later.

1. flag first if genuine
try to sort out if genuine or fake – this is important

don’t reply if fake – if its true but you don’t like it then, that’s still a genuine review – try and find out what you did wrong and if possible put things right

2. Are you certain its fake?
flag it
work through options several days – then you will get an email to confirm

and wait in most cases a fake review will now get removed BUT – there is still one more thing you can do

Then comment below and let me know how it went

And the answer to ABC C because being in the top 3 is key many reviews including a few 1 stars is expected – but in our case, we are removing fake that’s different to a bad review – would you trust a Dr with no reviews or a website – just because they are number 1?

3. Now this is a recent tip I heard Google were giving out – whether it’s true i have no way of confirming it as I haven’t heard it myself
report – same reason multiple times, around 5 times
claims he was advised by Google
keep reporting over time get other friends family etc
