Google Place ID Finder
v1.2 updated 10 Jan 2022

If you work in Local SEO, you might run into situations where you want to find the Place ID for a business. Unfortunately, the process of finding a place ID can be confusing and frustrating.

You have to go looking for it in the source code, which can be very time-consuming. Don't even get me started on how long it can take if you are on mobile.

Those frustrations are a thing of the past with Supple's new Google Place ID and QR Code Bookmarklet.

Just drag and drop the Google Place ID Finder button shown above to your browser’s bookmark bar. When you are on a Google search result page, just click on that bookmark and we will give you the Place ID, review link, and a QR Code to the review link.

How to get customers to leave a review on Google?

If a customer is really pleased with your customer service or the quality of your products, more often than not they will be happy to leave a review for your business – the tricky part is directing them at the right time. With Supple’s Google Place ID Bookmarklet tool, you can easily generate the direct link to the review box and send it to your customers and, as a result, dramatically increase the chances of customers leaving a positive review. Below are some examples for how to get customers to leave a review:

  • If you successfully interact with a customer either face-to-face or via email, you can send them a follow up email with the Google review link included.

  • If you are helping a customer resolve an issue via live chat, once you have resolved the issue, you can ask them to leave a review and send them the direct link.

Are Customer Reviews Important for Local Businesses?

Various studies have shown that most people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation. When it comes to local SEO, getting your customers to leave a positive review for your business on Google is quite important. When potential customers search for a local service or product, they usually see the business in the search results with a map, which often includes the name, location, phone number and reviews other people have left for the business on Google. The number of positive reviews that your business has can have a direct impact on how your business ranks in the local map pack in search results and how customers perceive your brand. So, it’s in your best interest to get more customers to leave reviews for your business.

It has become increasingly harder for people to leave a review on Google. Since there is no simple way to get a direct link that you can give to your customers, Supple has created a tool that generates a unique Google Review link for your business. The best way to increase reviews for your Google Business listing is by sending the direct review link to your customers. This is the easiest way for customers to leave reviews for your business, rather than searching for your Google page on your website – most people can’t be bothered with that! The process is really easy, all it takes is a couple of clicks and the customer can leave a review based on their experience with your business.
