  • Scroll down until you see “Reviews” or a similar section.

  1. Rate and Review:
  • Tap or click the star rating you want to give (5 stars being the best).

Do you need a gmail email to leave a google review?

You actually don’t necessarily need a Gmail email address to leave a Google review! While Google initially prompts you to sign in, there’s a workaround:

Here’s how to leave a Google review without a Gmail account:

  1. Reach the review section: Follow the usual steps to find the company’s Google Maps listing and scroll down to the “Reviews” section.
  2. Click “Write a review”: This will prompt you to sign in.
  3. Click “Create account”: Google will try to direct you to create a Gmail account.
  4. Choose “Use my current email address instead”: This option appears below the “Create account” button.
  5. Enter your preferred email address (non-Gmail): Google will verify the email and allow you to write your review.


  • You’ll need a valid email address regardless of being a Gmail account.
  • This workaround might not be readily apparent, so don’t hesitate to explore the options before assuming a Gmail account is mandatory.

On Facebook:

  1. Visit the company’s page:
  • Open Facebook on your computer or mobile device.
  • Search for the company’s name and open their official page.
  1. Find the Review Section:
  • Look for the “Reviews” tab or section on the left side of the page.

  1. Recommend and Review:
  • Click “Yes” next to “Do you recommend [Company Name]?”
  • In the text box, write your positive review similar to Google, mentioning why you recommend them.
  • (Optional) Add photos or videos to enhance your review.
  1. Post Your Review:
  • Click “Post” or “Submit” to publish your review publicly.

Additional Tips:

  • Be authentic and specific in your review. Mention names of employees who provided exceptional service if applicable.
  • Proofread your review before posting to avoid typos or grammatical errors.
  • Respect the platform’s review guidelines.
  • Leaving a positive review takes only a few minutes and can make a big difference for the company.

Remember, your feedback helps businesses grow and others make informed decisions. So, share your positive experiences and contribute to a better online community!
