Monitoring Reviews and Ratings on Google Maps With Outscraper

Online reputation is now invaluable to any business. Even a single negative review can chase off a potential customer and move to other competitors. For this reason, following online reputation for a company is as important as keeping the inside of the shop clean. 

The most important factors affecting online reputation are the reviews and the ratings given to the business. Monitoring and paying attention to these ratings and reviews regularly will prevent loss of customers and revenue. 

All of these ratings and reviews should be dealt with individually. And all comments should be responded to on a regular basis. If a negative comment arises, it should be addressed without any further fuss.

Since it is such a sensitive issue that directly affects businesses, many businesses that provide “Online Reputation Management” and “Review & Rating Tracking” services have started to take place in the market.

Providing “Online Reputation Management” and “Review & Rating Tracking” service is not as easy as it seems. It is necessary to frequently follow up the reputation in many different places.

According to each business, comments and ratings may come from different places. Web services such as Yelp, TripAdvisor and Google Maps allow people to evaluate the services they have received.

A Negative Review On Google Maps

Managing and tracking incoming reviews for a single business can be very simple. However, it is seriously difficult to do this for businesses with tens or hundreds of different branches. Or, a business that provides “Online Reputation Management” service to more than one business will not be able to follow up with the reviews and ratings of all its customers successively. Outscraper services can be used to overcome this difficulty.

Sorting Reviews as Newest on Google Maps

These filtering capabilities act like the sorting option in Google Maps. It allows you to scrape the results encountered when using sorting on Google Maps. 

Using Filters for Scraping Only Newly Received Reviews and Ratings​

I set the sorting parameter to scrape the newly received reviews and ratings of the Starbucks branch in the images in the subject. And I set up a limit until 9 April 2022, exactly one month before this article as a date.

Thanks to the ability to limit the tasks according to date, periodic scraping can be made with Outscraper hassle-free. If a monthly scraping period is determined, the limit date can be set as May 9 while creating the next task.
