In episode 329 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if you can offset average reviews and get into the 3-pack by targeting optimized listings with press release, backlinks, drive stacks from MGYB.
The exact question was:
Hi Guys, . . . Need your help with 2 quick questions (smile) . . . (1) I'm presuming that having lots of 4 and 5 star reviews still has a significant effect on getting a GMB listing into the 3-Pack, but if the business has just “”average”” quantity and quality reviews compared to their competitors, can you offset that deficiency and still get into the 3-Pack by targeting the “”optimized”” listing with Press Releases, Backlinks, RYS Google Drive Stack, Etc from MGYB? . . .
