May be you want to read reviews, but what about scam and fake reviews?

Are there fake reviews? Yes, there are. The internet is full of places where people leave fake reviews.

They are either product owners to promote their products dishonestly or people who are being paid for reviewing products without having practically used the product themselves.

Same is true of ratings and other false indicators.

In this post I took in to account each element by allocating a score based on the actual customer’s experience. The each individual score is added up to find out the total score. The product with the highest total score is be allocated the top position.

For the purpose of this calculation I gathered the data in to an excel spread sheet. Allocating the score to each factor is on the basis of the customer review.

You can see a the excel spread sheet converted into a table at the end of this post.

Now, you might be thinking what about fake reviews?

Were there any fake reviews involved?

All these products are the top performing products sold on Amazon. All the data was gathered from Amazon based on the customers’ reviews.

I know that there may be some dishonest reviewers on Amazon, but for the most part, Amazon reviews are honest, just, impartial and based on customer’s actual experience.
