CARES Act

Employee Retention Credit -

https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/faqs-employee-retention-credit-under-the-cares-act

The Employee Retention Credit under the CARES Act encourages businesses to keep employees on their payroll. The refundable tax credit is 50% of up to $10,000 in wages paid by an eligible employer whose business has been financial Available on qualified wages paid after March 12, 2020, through and including December 31, 2020.

Employers can be immediately reimbursed for the credit by reducing their required deposits of payroll taxes that have been withheld from employees' wages by the amount of the credit.

Eligible employers will report their total qualified wages and the related health insurance costs for each quarter on their quarterly employment tax returns or Form 941 beginning with the second quarter. If the employer's employment tax deposits are not sufficient to cover the credit, the employer may receive an advance payment from the IRS by submitting Form 7200, Advance Payment of Employer Credits Due to COVID-19.

Do Online Reviews Affect How My Business Ranks On Search Results?

As a business owner you might’ve heard about the term “reputation management”.

Basically, reputation management refers to methods of influencing and controlling an individual’s or business’s reputation, an increasingly important factor when it comes to ranking high in online search results - Google and other search engines love a good reputation.

Most consumers nowadays research online and read customer reviews of products or services before committing to buy.

The impact of reviews on ranking is highly debated among search experts

Businesses with many online reviews and photos tend to show up more prominently in local search results. Whether the number of reviews is what causes a business to rank or if it is simply a result of the business being so visible remains unclear.

However, having reviews does increase clicks and interactions with your business from search results, and that increase in interaction does have a positive effect on your website’s search engine optimization(SEO).
