Google My Business releases a tool to more easily manage your reviews
Previously, there was no real way to see the status of reviews you flagged to be taken down in an organized way.
The newest feature within Google My Business allows you to see recent reviews on their listings in a single place and check the status of reviews you've reported to Google.
The new tool. You can access this new tool here. Step one is to select your business, then select if you want to check the status of a reported review or if you want to report a new review for a takedown.
This new tool allows you to see the status of your request for takedown. While it may not help more errant reviews get removed it gives you more clarity into your requests.
