One of our most frequently asked questions is “how can we request our customers to write a review on Google” or “how to find the link to Google My Business page?” Most business owners have a hard time to find the fixed URL (URL: the address of a World Wide Web page) for their Google Business page.
In this article, we will help you to understand how Google works and show you 3 methods to find the URL of your Google page.

Let us show you how to find your CID step by step.
First, search your business on Google and make sure only your page is searched.
If other business pages are searched together, you will also find their CIDs on the same page. Adjust your search words or add your address in order to pick only your business.
Then, move your mouse on the page and click the right button.
In the drop menu, choose View page source. Then you will see the page coding.
Hit “Ctrl” + “F” keys and search “ludocid=“.
The 20 digit-number between “ludocid=” and “&” is your CID.
In our case, CID is 16994382681390998721.
(If “Ctrl” + “F” keys are not allowed on your browser, just copy the whole page and paste it on your editor such as MS Word. Then you can find it.)
3. Installing a Chrome Extension
If you’re a Google Chrome user, installing the extension will be the best. The extension is called “GatherUp Google Review Link Generator” by GatherUp.com.

4. Select the GatherUp Extension and you will be directed to a new page that includes the “Write a Review link”
