google places reviews

I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem. My site naturaldry.com is listed on google places for Las Vegas and Henderson, NV. One of our competitors has written a negative review on both of our places pages. I made a comment back to it, but is there a way to report it or remove it. I know this is a competitor because of several reasons. What do you do in this case? This has to be one of the most unethical ways to compete with another business.

No need to worry, just deal with the negative reviews, work on getting great ones and in time the negative ones will be 'eclipsed' by the positive ones.

If you know for certain, you could file a complain with the BBB or have an attorney send over a pretty nasty letter.

Google removed some of my reviews the other day that were legit reviews. Looks like they went back on today. Google Places always has problems.

Review score doesn't show in SERPs until you have at least 10 I believe, and clicking your link in local results goes straight to your website, so it actually doesn't matter. Reviews on your G+ local page are also a very small part of ranking in local results.

Like everyone else said, just respond properly and move on.
