Google review issues

Since the new Google+ Local updates a lot of Local Guides have been complaining about losing points.

I went through all my reviews and found out that you could lose point for any one of the following reasons.

Reviews Marked as Spam – Flagged reviews are set as private and not counted in the local guides’ point system.

Duplicating reviews or content are not allowed, this includes copying and pasting the same review to multiple businesses.

Reviews being misplaced within the Google review system. I don’t think this is something to be worried about because Google will fix it at some point.

Ratings – Not sure about this but could possibly be a bug, I had several ratings that were being flagged that I did about 2 years ago. I added some text and the violations are gone.
