Why are some of my reviews filtered?
Some review platforms filter certain reviews that don’t meet their criteria for one reason or another.
Here are a few reasons reviews might get filtered:
- The reviewer has never posted another review before
- The review is too positive or too negative, making it seem like spam
- The review isn’t useful – some platforms allow users to up-vote or down-vote your reviews if they aren’t funny or useful
- The review has been flagged for removal because someone thought it was fake
Often, there’s nothing you can do about these filtered reviews besides contacting the website’s support team. You can, however work to consistently get new positive reviews on the platform so that when one of your good reviews is filtered, it doesn’t seem like such a huge hit to your business’s online reputation.
