My review was deleted

Hi, I posted a bad review two days ago, it was deleted today and a new review saying incredible things about the place appeared. I believe the new review is from one of the employees or a friend of them. I posted my review again, but I am very mad because this place is not being honest by deleting bad reviews. Also I was the first review, now the first review is the review I believe is fake.

I hope my review will appear again and the "fake" review will be verified, and probably deleted.

Hi PieroFort

Welcome to the TripAdvisor Support Forum.

First of all, a busness cannot delete a review. They can, like any contributor, report a review that they believe is not in accordance with TripAdvisor guidelines, and they ar eobviously mr elikely to report a review that is negative as opposed to reporting a review that is very positive.

Secondly, if you find a review suspicious, as mentioned above, you can report it yourself. You should be able to see a button labelled 'Problem with this review?' which will lead you into the process. I'm sorry I don't know what happens next, but I have never reported a review myself.

FInally, you could contact TA directly to find out why your review has been removed. The Support Forum is not na effective way of communicating with TA, but you will find lots of volunteers here who will attempt to help new contributors find their way around, or try and resolve technical problems that people may be experiencing. Again, I have never doen this myself, but taking a look to the links to the Help Centre may be a good place to start.

Hi PieroFort,

Once you submit your review, it should show as pending in your Contributions. You can check by hovering over Your TripAdvisor at the top of the page and then click on Contributions.

Reviews can take from a day or so to two weeks to be published to the site. As long as it's pending and it's less than two weeks, that would be the usual time frame. Occasionally a review may move back to pending if it's being looked at by TA Staff. So, for the second review you can check to see if it's in pending. As you resubmitted, rather than follow up with the first one, there's no point in following up as you can only post a review for subsequent visits after a certain period of time of time:


As well, there are randomly-sent verification emails from TA staff; if the reviewer does not respond, the review can be taken down. Sometimes these emails end up in a spam in-box.
