Signs Of A Good Review Site
In the internet, there are many product review site However, not all of them are the same when you talk about honesty and integrity. You may think that they are unbiased at first sight. However, in the end, you will see their real intention. Their real intention is just to make money through their affiliate links that’s why they promote it.
Here are the tips you can follow when you check the review site to know if they are just promoting or they are writing honest review:
Determine the owner and operator of the website. Most of the time, a good review site is when it contains a bio, about, or info of the owner of the website. You will find many product review websites that claim to be honest reviewers but only promoting the product in order for you to buy.
You must find out if the reviewers or site owners purchased the products themselves. This is an important factor to determine the integrity of the review. There is more chance that there will be a bias for those people who did not even experienced using the product. Since it is the truth the he did not even use it, the reviewer will remain objective all throughout the review.
You must determine if the website has different reviews of several products or only one. When a website has several reviews on different products there are more chances that they are neutral compared to a website with reviews to only one product. Of course, the owner will not build a website and put negative review into it. The review will always be positive although they may give negative comment to provide an impartial appearance.
The single product review is more common among affiliate markets because search engines give importance to keywords in the domain name. Like for example, if the product being reviewed is about vacuum cleaner, the website with domain name vacuumcleanerreview will most likely reach the higher rank is the search engine.
You should know if the reviewers only say positive things about the product they review. A true review site will both say the advantages and disadvantages of the product. When all of the reviews are positive and the products are promoted, then the owner or reviewer is just having his personal interest and not the benefit of the consumers.
Did you find in the title the word “scam”? This is a technique of the dishonest reviewers by using the keywords in the title to promote trust factor.
You must also be careful in other factors, there are also other factors you need to consider. You may be in the sales page when the review site has the name of the product in its URL. The website may only have two to three page of product reviews.
