When you review a restaurant on Google Maps, do you tell everyone about its must-try dishes? Do you include helpful tips for visitors in your reviews of local landmarks? We have great news for Local Guides who share thoughtful, thorough, detailed reviews: Starting today, they’ll earn you bonus points.

Here’s how it works: Write 200 characters or more in any review, and you’ll get 5 bonus points. That’s in addition to the 5 points each review is worth on its own, plus 1 point for your rating.
We know that many of you have written lots of detailed reviews already, so you’ll get bonus points for past reviews, too. (If you don’t see those points right away, don’t worry. There may be a delay before they appear.)
We hope you’re excited about bonus points for detailed reviews! Let us know what you think.
