Google+ Profile Update - Local Reviews in Profiles are Back (again)
Posted by +Lee Jarratt:

Don't worry, you are not experiencing Déjà vu..

It seems that Google has added Local review statistics to profiles again. You may remember that they added this functionality late last month (http://goo.gl/MWx1m) and then removed it less than 48 hours later (http://goo.gl/gdZGN) for reasons unknown.

Let's hope the 'link to Local' functionality is here to stay as it is sure to boost the number of reviews for businesses in Google+ Local.

What do you think of the reintroduction of the 'link to Local' in profiles?

Not yet visible for me, so must be a gradual roll out. Here's hoping.
 
Including a preview of the most recent review might help too.

Anyone find the underscore next to the pencil icon unnecessary?
 
As of this morning it's appeared for me without a deep refresh.
 
I just assumed it was a piece of paper, or a shadow +Sean S :-)
 
I think it's a line of writing. Definitely not an underline.
 
Personally I'm really not a fan of this.

That said, I think the whole review process is a big dodgy. being unable to leave anonymous reviews means that you're likely going to bias the reviews. (e.g. I'm not going to review a local pub as being bad when everyone knows me etc.).

+Michael Harries ,
I agree.  I already deleted one of my reviews and just rated it instead.  
I don't want to feel awkward going to a place I go to often not knowing  whether or not they've seen my reviews.
