Google+ Local Reviews Now Showing as SERP Pop-Ups - Goodbye Google+ Local Pages?:

Google+ Local Reviews Now Showing as SERP Pop-Ups - Goodbye Google+ Local Pages?:

The default view is a list of the 10 most recent reviews with a “more reviews” link at the bottom that creates a kind of infinite scroll effect There’s a review sort and a prominent “write a review” button. Pro Tip: Google wants you to write a review. There is no link to a map or driving directions which seems kind of wrong but implies that Google is thinking when you want reviews, we give you reviews and when you want a map, you go back to the SERP to get the map. In a way it’s a simpler construct than the kitchen sink approach they use now THE SERP IS NOW TOTALLY SEPARATE FROM THE BUSINESS’ GOOGLE+ PAGE. https://plus.google.com/116091785697157979199/about?gl=US&hl=en-US still exists, but it only appears to be accessible via the Google+ UI and as a normal result in the SERPs.
