5 Ways to Spot a Trustworthy Amazon Review

5 Ways to Spot a Trustworthy Amazon Review

With all the fake reviews floating around out there can Amazon reviews be trusted? Janet Boyer says, "Yes!" and tells us want to look for.

1. Look for the Real Name badge.
She writes:
In order to have a Real Name badge as an Reviewer, an individual must VERIFY her identity via credit card. When an individual puts her name on a review, she is saying "I stand by my review and will put my reputation on the line for it."
2. Hall of Fame Reviewer or Top Reviewer badge
In order to get these badges the review will have to have written a lot of posts combined with thousands of 'helpful' votes.

For her other points read Janet's article: 5 Ways to Spot a Trustworthy Amazon Review.
