Temporary Connectivity Issue with Google Reviews (March 2023)

Temporary Connectivity Issue with Google Reviews (March 2023)


Update from April 6th, 2023: The issue has been resolved. Google reviews are being queried normally again.

We wanted to update you about a current issue that may affect your experience with our platform. Rest assured, we’re working hard to fix it as quickly as possible.

The Issue at Hand

As you know, ReviewForest plants trees for each review your business receives. However, we’ve encountered a temporary connectivity issue with one of our data providers, causing some Google reviews not to be recognized by our system. This means that trees might not be planted for those affected reviews for the time being.

Our Plan of Action

We’re committed to our mission and are working diligently to resolve this issue. We are in the process of integrating another data provider to ensure that our platform can continue to recognize and plant trees for your valuable Google reviews. Once the issue is fixed, we will fetch any reviews left during this time and plant trees accordingly. You don’t need to do anything. We estimate this issue will be fixed in the first week of April.

A Suggested Alternative

In the meantime, you may consider using our official Google Business Profile integration. This official integration fetches new reviews faster and more reliably. If you would like to switch to this integration, please reach out to our customer service team at [email protected], and they will be happy to help you make the transition.
