Benefits of connecting your GMB profile to Reputation Manager

We have made it easy to connect your GMB profile to Reputation Manager (see how to do this below).

There are some great benefits of doing this -

  1. We check for new reviews every day and alert you (once a day) to any new reviews you get
  2. You get all your reviews pulled into your Reputation Manager account, not just the most recent 500 reviews*
  3.  You can reply directly to Google reviews from your Reputation Manager report

*If you don't connect your GMB profile we only pull in the newest/latest 500 reviews. This is because we scrape these reviews rather than access them by the official GMB API
