You can see the overall rating of a business based on Google reviews in several places, primarily within the Google ecosystem. Here are the main locations where you can find the overall rating of a business:

  1. Google Search:
    • When you perform a search for a specific business on Google, the overall star rating is often displayed prominently in the search results. This information is usually located on the right side of the search results page (on desktop) or at the top (on mobile).
  2. Google Maps:
    • If you use Google Maps to search for a business, the overall rating is displayed prominently on the business’s profile page. The star rating is typically located near the top of the profile, along with the number of reviews.
  3. Google My Business Dashboard:
    • Business owners can view the overall rating of their business in the Google My Business dashboard. This platform provides an overview of the business’s information, including the star rating.
  4. Business Website (Using Google Widgets):
    • Some businesses choose to display their Google reviews, including the overall rating, on their own websites. Google provides widgets and plugins that businesses can use for this purpose.
  5. Third-Party Websites and Directories:
    • Some third-party websites and directories that aggregate business information may display the overall rating based on Google reviews.
  6. Local Pack in Search Results:
    • When users perform local searches, especially those with location-specific queries, the Local Pack may appear in the search results. This list of local businesses includes their overall ratings.
  7. Google Knowledge Panel:
    • For well-known entities, landmarks, or organizations, the Google Knowledge Panel may display the overall rating along with other information.

In all these locations, the overall rating is represented by a certain number of stars (e.g., 4.5 out of 5 stars), providing a quick visual summary of the average rating based on user reviews. Businesses with higher ratings are often more attractive to potential customers, as a higher rating is generally associated with positive customer experiences.
