"Your customers use online reviews to decide where to eat, shop, and do business. The feedback and ratings your customers give also help determine your rankings for your keywords."

That's the message that greets small business owners on the sign-up page for, a new free service from Utah-based search firm Solo SEO. The review generation service makes it easy for business owners to accumulate reviews on sites like Yahoo and Google Local and Yelp, get them ranked and even provide customers with an incentive for writing the review.

At, reviewers are taken directly to one of the business owner's chosen review sites, and they get a printable coupon (created by the owner, but hosted on the site) once they've posted a review. There are quick links to the popular local search engines and directories so that business owners can get their company listed first, and the service also keeps track of how many times a coupon code was entered. Local search pros like Mike Blumenthal, Matt McGee and Miriam Ellis helped contribute to the project's development through feedback and testing.
