Google Local Notice When Review Posting Is Turned Off

Woman Posting Review In Restaurant Google

At the beginning of this year we covered the updated posting restrictions guidelines for Google Maps where Google said they can turn off posting for a particular place. Well, we are now seeing an example of that in action, where Google is testing the reviewer that posting has been turned off.

Hiroko Imai posted a screenshot of this in action on X. Hiroko wrote, “This is the first time I’ve seen a business displaying a GBP posting restrictions, and even the GBP support team couldn’t resolve it.This business does not allow users to review at all branches.”
