Quick…take a look at the Google search results listing to the left. Which business catches your attention first? (Click the image to enlarge it, if desired)

If you’re like most people, you eyes were drawn to the gold stars (14 Google reviews). Studies show that the businesses showing the stars are the ones who get more of the consumer calls…unless, of course, if the stars are showing a low rating.

Did you also happen to notice that three of the other businesses in the example above also have Google reviews? Yet, only one of them is showing the gold stars. Why is that?

Previously, Google would only display gold star ratings when a business had 10 or more customer reviews. Then, Google removed the stars entirely. But, they decided they really added to the searcher’s experience. So, they brought them back and…changed the minimum number of reviews required to display the stars.

Back To The 7-Pack Example

Notice the second plumber listed in the example has 4 Google reviews. If they were to get just one more customer review, Google will now turn the gold stars on for them. That’s right…just one more review gets them the eye-magnet gold stars for consumers to notice.

And, that’s just one of the powerful things you can do to make your business standout in Google. More on that in a minute…
