How To Know If You Are Looking At A Good Review Site?
You can see plenty of product review site in the internet. However, not all of them are the same when you talk about honesty and integrity. When you look at it at first sight, you may think that it is unbiased. However, when you truly assess it, you will realize its true 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:
It is important to know the owner and the 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 very important when assessing the integrity of the review. There is more tendency that there is bias for those people who did not try 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. The owner of the website will not create a website and place 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 site is well-recognized among affiliate markets since search engines prioritize 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 must assess if the reviewers only have positive comment regarding the product they review. A true and neutral review site will both comment the positive and negative side of the products. The reviewer or the owner of the website is having his own personal interest and was not thinking about the benefit of the consumers when the reviews are all positive and the products are well-endorsed.
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 consider the other factors. When the review site has the product name in its URL it is likely to be a sales page. The review site may also contain two to three pages only.
