Controversy surrounds the topic, but the guidelines are clear if you bother to read them. The rules aren’t complicated:
Google does not allow you to have a kiosk or a review station in your business.

Yelp doesn’t want you to ask for reviews either.
Don’t post your Yelp reviews on your own website. Yelp doesn’t allow you to use their content. This language has been in place since 2011.
