Online reviews are transforming the success of every local business in the world. Thanks to the rise of mobile and local search, sites such as Yelp, Foursquare and Google+ Local have revolutionized word-of-mouth marketing for local businesses. Now, 72% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, according to a study by SearchEngine Land’s Local Consumer Review Survey. 80% of customers say they will cancel a purchase if they see a bad online reviews.
