I have been watching the evolution of "online reviews" for over ten years now, 80+% of people believe you can trust online reviews and they are mostly wrong.
I did a Google search and found this outstanding article from SearchEngineLand.

I prefer not to go into all the details, knowledge and verified information I have. I will just explain why this study proves most people are wrong to trust online reviews. Also I give real examples of how Google is blocking legitimate review writing attempts by many people including me.

I have been researching and investigating fake Google accounts and fake Google reviews the last few months. Please check back as I will be updating this article often.

I wrote another article that I hope you read about all types of fake reviews from multiple companies, e.g. Yelp, Amazon, Google, etc.

This article is focused only on Google. If you read my previous article then you understand why this is so important and how this topic negatively affects many millions of people. In this article I am going to use a case study and a real life example.

I own a software product that is sold in the Google Chrome store. It is an online password manager and I also wrote an article showing my own screen shots and how and why I use our OnlinePasswordManager (OPM) every single day. Our OPM has only been in the Google Chrome store for less than a year (press release), so every review is very important at this stage. We have all 4 and 5 star reviews except for one "fake 1 star Google review" from a person named Marty Topping.
Now at first you should ask how do I know it is a fake Google review?

This video is very funny and makes an important point.

Based on all the past problems Sony has faced with hackers and the fact that Sony did not do a good job of protecting passwords.  Furthermore with the general public concerned about the US government spying on citizens I thought it would be important to explain why everyone should be using on 
Online Password Manager for business, personal, SEO and marketing.

Google has multiple databases they use today and the differences between them seem bigger than ever.

Back in the good old days of SEO, Google had many data centers and people tracked them, you could look and see small differences, e.g. on 12+ different Google data centers you might rank between 1-3 for your keyword phase.
I do not think anyone has a way to track all the different Google data centers anymore. If someone knows how to, please email me and let me know.

Today it is very different, I will explain and show detailed search examples below.

The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) process is an ongoing continuing process that we perform every day for our clients. It is possible to become very successful with top natural/organic SEO rankings, as most (68% to 90%) searchers skip the paid ads. This large range is highly keyword dependent, e.g. if someone is searching for "buy refrigerator" vs. "what is George Washington's birthday". People searching to buy a new refrigerator have a higher probability of clicking on a paid Google Ad, then someone searching for George Washington's birthday.
The other major benefit of natural or organic #1 rankings is you do not have to pay per click.  Google Adwords can run as high as $182+ per click for highly competitive keyword phrases.
It is very important to stay with SEO methodologies long term in order to achieve the desired results.  If you stop this process your web traffic and rankings will drop, and it may be difficult to recover previous top rankings.
You can not turn natural SEO on and off like you can for Google Adwords.
Also website owners that jump around from SEO Company to SEO Company are in danger of being penalized by Google.
Google is very complex and secret so no one can claim to be 100% accurate as to why Google makes the decisions it does.  However we do know that Google has many different types of penalties some of which are manual and some of which are automated via advanced software algorithms.
The quality of your backlinks and the longer your backlinks are aged, make up major factors in the Google software ranking algorithms.  Please remember if you lose important authoritative backlinks, then you must start the aging process over from the starting line.  Besides losing PageRank, this also brings suspicion from Google, and you do not want that to happen.  Google detects all these changes looking for unnatural suspicious activities.
