Does Google delete old reviews? I need more Google reviews than I've got. Very satisfied clients keep promising to do one, but the number hasn't gone up for ages. It's not at all clear who has done a review and who hasn't and in my line of trade (I'm a hypnotherapist) for various reasons it isn't too cool to check with people (they might feel guilty or pressured, not good.) The dozen or so that there are are fairly recent, so it looks like the people who promise are doing the review, but Google in its infinite wisdom is deleting old ones. Possible..? anyone any experience of this?

As far as I know they don't delete them. But they may not feature them so prominently. Although it's possible within the transition to Google+ Places Pages that some reviews didn't port over. 


For my site, Google seems to be showing 10 of them, most from a few years ago. I can't recall if I had more than that at one time or not, however.

And Google Reviews does not have that much value anyway. You can go to fiverr and find tons of services provide you with hundreds of positive reviews for just a few dollars. Or you can just create a bunch of Google profiles and post the review yourself. Just my 2cent.

I completely disagree. The fact that you have to have a google profile means a lot. Obviously google isn't going to count reviews from new accounts the same as they would for older and more importantly, trusted accounts. That's where google+ and authorship are hugely important.
