Flagged First-Party Review Guidelines

You have the ability to flag only first-party reviews within the Yext platform. Flagging should be reserved for reviews with inappropriate content, advertising/spam, or if the review is unrelated to the location. After a review is flagged, a team at Yext will investigate the flagged review and determine if the content should be accepted or rejected.

When a user flags a review, they will see the following box appear asking them to select a reason:

The user must select only one of the three reasons provided. By default, the first reason will be selected when the box appears to the user. The user must select a reason in order for the review to be flagged for further investigation.

Examples of each flagged reason:

This review contains inappropriate, hateful or violent content.

  • Language
    • Commonly used profanity
    • Sexual connotations
  • Negative remarks about an employee of the business

This review contains advertising or spam.

  • Bulk messaging
  • Malicious links
  • Content that is irrelevant to the business

This review is not related to the location.

  • Remarks about a different location
    • Content not related to the physical location
    • Content not related to the business

If a review is flagged, but the negative feedback the customer provides is constructive, Yext will not accept the flag and the review will stay live. See examples of this below. 

New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge

333 Adams St, Brooklyn, NY

Great convenient location. Good service. Our room on the third floor had a large gap under the door and the squeaking from the escalators and people talking in the lobby were very loud. This wouldn't be a problem on higher floors though since they don't open to a balcony above the lobby. Internet is expensive at $20 or $30 per night depending on the speed you want. Comfy beds and nice big TVs. No drawers at all, so if you want to unpack you're out of luck. I enjoyed my stay but it didn't really feel like a 4 star room. 

Ruth’s Chris Steak House

148 W 51st St, New York, NY

Nice environment. We went there for the restaurant week deal, but the meal was not high quality. Mediocre restaurant overall.

Cole Haan

141 5th Ave, New York, NY

I've called multiple times to confirm inventory before stopping by the store, but nobody ever picks up. This is an example of poor customer service.
