The total ranking of a product in a category, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated using the following factors:
Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.
All products with a minimum of fifty points are designated that month with a Leader badge. There can be multiple, one, or zero leaders in a category.
Rankings for June 2023 and earlier used our previous ranking methodology:
Category rankings are recalculated at the beginning of each month based on the new reviews which have been published
and the old reviews which have ‘expired’ (published > 24 months ago).
If we suspect a vendor has used artificial means intended to increase the ranking data, our team will thoroughly
investigate the suspect foul play and take corrective action as needed (ex: use of a click farm by a vendor in order
to increase views or comparisons of their product).
We take pride in being an objective site offering authentic reviews from real users. We ensure our reviews are authentic with a number of steps to ensure authenticity:
The default ordering of reviews on a product page is based on the review length, then review date. Visitors can change the ordering of reviews to be based on date, highest ranking, and lowest ranking.
