Google Review URL Generator

Ratings, reviews, and testimonials are forms of what we in the digital marketing industry refer to as “social proof”. Social proof sets a customer’s mind at ease and can heavily influence their purchasing decisions.

Think about your own purchasing habits. When you search for a local Italian restaurant, plumber, or product on Google and the reviews pop up who do you go with? The business with 0 reviews or the place with 37 reviews and a 4.5 star rating?

Online reviews generate credibility, help improve your local online presence, and give you an edge over your competitors’ listings. Not only is it important that you encourage customers to leave a review but you also need to make it super easy for them.

This tutorial will teach you how to use a free service to generate a direct link to your Google review form that is pre-populated with 5-Stars.

Watch the video tutorial above or follow along with these 5 easy steps to making it easy for customers to leave a 5 star Google review of your business.

Step 1

Visit the following URL:


Step 2

Scroll down and enter your business name into the search field.


A drop-down list will appear and auto-populate with suggestions. Click on your business name.


Step 3

Decide on the type of link you want promote.

Two types of links will be generated.

  1. The first option will link to a Google review form that is pre-filled with 5 stars.
  2. The second will link to a list of existing reviews for the business.

A cool thing about the service is that is will generate the links in a few different ways:

  •  A QR code image your can use in physical locations or include in print media
  • A long form link
  • A shortened link (great for sharing)
  • Or an option to send a copy of the link in an email to yourself or your developer which is super handy.


 Step 4

Copy your link


Click “Ok”


Step 5

Paste the copied link into your browser to test.


And you’re done!


Now that you have the link, it’s time to reach out to old customers to leave a review. You should also consider using the link in a button or call-to-action on your website and social profiles to encourage future customers to do the same.

Our company hired EnVue to design two of our websites. Both of them turned out way better than we had imagined. Working with Scott was great! He is very on top of things and definitely knows what he is doing!
So easy to work with and we are so excited about our new website. It is user-friendly and engaging. A worthwhile upgrade for our professional image!

Scott's redesign made the website more interactive and offered an abundance of information that had only previously been shared through paper distribution. Registering for conference workshops online and submitting payment by credit card have allowed IASSW to be in practice with other professional organizations.
