I have not seen much discussion of this new field seen on US business listings that are also in Judy's Book. I had not heard of that site until recently, but they seem to have reviews and ratings going back at least five years, so they have been anointed as the suppliers of data for that new field.

Curiously, the value next to the "Reputation Trend" label is also "Reputation Trend", clean linked to the same business at JB. I don't think these pages pass PR.

I see this kind of data supply arrangement as a good way for an IYP to get some of the LBC action, if they missed out being the supplier of primary data.

Yep, I saw the reputation trend a few days ago & followed it over to Judy's Book. I'd guess that Google's smart enough to figure out a reputation trend on their own if they can get enough data ;)

Reputation trend seems like a very good tool. One of my clients bought an existing business that had poor reviews in the past. Their historical review average is kinda poor but their trend clearly shows the new owners are great.

btw, Judys Book is one of the original review sites. They blew thru some dot com money, crashed, burned & then relaunched about a year ago. They're a strong citation source in the industry I follow most closely.

I've seen major changes to local in the UK and I suspect that a form of reputation trend has been added. Any insight on this?
