How can I connect with ReviewForest via Google

Two options for the signup via Google

If you want to sign up via Google there are two options.
Both of them will be shown to you during the registration process at step four.

Here you can choose if you either want (1) to use the Google Search mask or if you want (2) to connect your Google My Business Account to us.

Two options for signup via Google

Either way, after registration we will use the established connection to automatically count your businesses reviews on Google in order to show them on your ReviewForest Prepage, your Social Media Templates and Marketing Material.

Please note:

If you are unable to find your business during the registration process using option (1) this is probably because your business has no physical address or your address is not publicly visible on Google.

You can easily test whether this is the case for your company by entering the company's address under the following link.
If you find your company there, you can also find and register with ReviewForest by entering the same information.

How to make your address public

Login to your Google My Business account
Visit the Info tab in the left menu
Click the pen icon to add your address next to the location symbol (below your company name)

Alternative - use option (2)

If you don't want to make your businesses address public, you can use option (2) and connect your Google My Business account with us to advance the signup process.

Please note that using this option there will pop up a window during the signup process and ask you if you are ready to give ReviewForest access to your Google My Business account in order to count existing and new reviews and implement them in your review forest. Sadly we can't change the message or the extend of the access since it is a generic procedure created by Google.
