We started noticing that the link that directly takes you to the "Write a review" popup is no longer working. Found some discussion on the Google Forums saying this is an error on Googles Side.

Anyone have a work around?

Example:
plus.google.com/11650456316764337513811/about?hl=en

In your example, you need to add more.

plus.google.com/11650456316764337513811/about?hl=en&review=1

Try that and let us know if that works. I just looked at a couple of my clients and it's working.

Yeah, I was just using his url in my example. Just wanted to point that he was missing some of the extension.

Had not read the thread at the G forum before I posted above.

Just read it. Interesting...

Thanks for sharing Justin!

I hadn't either Linda. But it seems to be just fine for the clients that I have checked in both Chrome and FF.

@ Scott: The ?hl=en&review=1 worked perfect. Never thought to put those two together.

Oh ya ?hl=en&review=1 is the way to do it. Thought you knew that because that's what's being discussed at the G forum. Thought you were trying it that way and were saying it did not work.

If having problems or looking for other (better?) ways to link to reviews, see this:
