Mobile search results on Google Maps

This is how your search results will display reviews on Google Maps (the Map app of choice for most mobile users):

First the screen shows the map, your location and your review score:

 Scroll down and there are the reviews and the 'Rate and review' function:

This is important for the following reasons:
  1. Everyone who is searching for you on mobile (for whatever reason - location, phone number etc.) will see your score and reviews
  2. They will automatically be invited to write a review
  3. Increasingly, searches are being made on mobile (smartphone or tablet) in preference to desktop or even laptop: see the results of Google's own research into real estate consumer behaviour in the USA, published today, here
