Removing a negative review for a notary

Filed under: Reviews — Tags: — admin @ 3:55 am

I just did something for the first time. I removed a negative review from a notary’s profile. I didn’t do it because the notary was innocent either. It is because of a new policy. If a review is three or more years old, the notary has the right to request that 123notary removes it. We won’t do it on our own though. If we remove a 3 year old negative review from a profile, we might remove 3 year old positive reviews as well just to be fair.

The next question is, how long should we keep positive reviews on the site? My hands are tied here. If I remove people’s positive reviews, they will come to my house and lynch me. Hmmm. I don’t want that to happen. There is no harm done in having old reviews hanging around on your profile. The harm is not having more recent ones. 123notary’s page ranking on Google goes up if there are more positive reviews in the area. So, if you are in Detroit, and you get a few reviews, you are helping not only yourself, but the entire Detroit page!

Please don’t flood me with emails over this issue. Read the date on your review. Wait until the review hits the three year make and then contact me. I will remove it upon request. Your jail sentence is over! You are released for good behavior!
