In light of continuing changes at Google, we've introduced a tool that automatically generates valid Google URLs for a variety of scenarios. Once you've connected a location to your account, our software will automatically generate these URLS. We recommend you utilize this function if you are unable to locate a Place ID for your business.

URLs in Google URL Box
To access your unique Google URLs, first ensure you've connected your location. Then, click the Click here for Google URL button in Dashboard > Funnel > Links > Business Location Info.
The button will expand into a box with a list of links. Below are the different Google URL options with descriptions:
Open Review Dialog
This is the default link created when using the Connect a Location feature. This option takes the user directly to the review dialog. If they are not logged into the browser, they will first see a login popup.
The review dialog as it appears on the desktop
The sign in screen, as it appears on mobile
Alternate Review Link (Desktop Only)
This option functions the same as above, but only works on desktop. It is useful when you are unable to locate a Place ID for a business (and therefore not generate a Review Dialog link).
Open in Maps
Devices: Desktop, Mobile (limited) The user will be taken to the business' listing in Google Maps. If accessed from a mobile device (be sure to toggle it visible to your mobile landing page visitors), it will open in the Google Maps app if it's installed, and the browser if it's not. When opened in the browser, the visitor will not have the option to leave a review. The user clicks Write a Review at the bottom of the page on the desktop. On mobile, they can scroll down, give a star rating, and be taken to the review dialog.
Reviews List (Desktop Only)
The user is taken to the listings' review list to read existing reviews. This option is only available on desktop.
Use Google+ at your Own Risk
If you've been with us for a while, there is a small chance that you may still have a Google+ link on one of your profiles. Google has been slowly phasing out Google+ as a review vehicle for a while now, and we've decided to discourage its use by removing the Google+ link from our link generator.
We do not recommend using a Google+ link as your review link, as Google is removing the ability to view and leave reviews on these profiles. We do not support Review Monitoring for Google+ links.
