    Ok… so how can Google solicit a review team, but then update its Google+Local review filters to remove reviews from SMBs that Google believes were solicited?

    Rubbish.

    I find it very interesting some of the cities they picked for this in the US. For instance picking Portland over Seattle. Also Raleigh over Charlotte

    Google really should have purchased Yelp when they had the chance. I think the key to this taking off is Google being able to build a community with the “cool factor”. It is what their local reviews have been lacking and why I think Yell gets so many more local reviews.

    An excellent play by Google! It will probably drive more reviews and make Local even better.

    I agree Oremo. The amount of data they could have integrated with Google Local would have been well worth it.
