5 Essential Software Review Platforms You Should Monitor

Software review platforms can help software companies, developers, and digital-first organizations drive engagement with their customers and users while also generating new leads. 

Software brands that have the ability to monitor these software review platforms can help set them apart from software brands that don’t. 

After all, what your existing users say in their reviews about your software can either impress or drive away potential new customers.

G2 is one of the world’s largest tech marketplaces where businesses can discover, compare, purchase, and manage the software they need to reach their potential.

Google (Google Business Profile / Google My Business)

Apart from being the world’s number 1 search engine, Google also happens to be one of the most popular software review platforms today. The company publishes local listings and makes these available to products like Google Search and Google Maps, displaying relevant business information alongside Google reviews and ratings. 

According to online reviews statistics:

  • Google is the number 1 review site. Zero-click searches, which rose to 65% in 2020, mean more users than ever are reading Google reviews directly from search results.
  • 63.6% of consumers say they are likely to check Google reviews (through Google Maps and Search) before visiting a business location or making a purchase decision — more than any other review site.
  • According to an analysis of top business directory sites, Google is the top review platform in the software category.

You can claim or list your software brand using Google Business Profile (formerly Google My Business), a dashboard that streamlines the management of business information across multiple Google sites, services, and products. 

Alternatively, ReviewTrackers is part of the Google Featured Partners program. This allows users to use the platform to consolidate all types of software brand monitoring activities on Google as well as other software review platforms like G2 and Capterra.
