High Rating + High Number of Reviews = Best Products
We discover the products people feel passionate about.
Simply put, High Consumer Rating + High Number of Reviews = Best Products. By giving you the review rating AND the number of reviews easily, you can jump right to the best of the best, leveraging the power of a large group of people.
We use a unique algorithm that picks the products that are “voted” the best by consumers. Without going into too much detail, the system narrows in on items that have a lot of positive reviews. By selecting and showing only items that have a certain number of reviews, IntelliReview allows you to quickly see some of the best products being sold – in a lot of different categories.
Overwhelmed With Choices
Shopping on the Internet has come a long way over the years, but it can still sometimes be a little overwhelming when you’re faced with hundreds and thousands of products and reviews. Who has the time to read through all those to find the very best? Besides, that, there’s the question of “trusting” a rating with just one person voting and reviewing the product. What if there was a better way to deal with all the options and cut straight to the good items?
Using IntelliReview’s proprietary algorithm, you can quickly “zero in” on just products that have multiple positive reviews. This cuts through a lot of clutter. With just a few more options at your fingertips, you can quickly find the best of the best without wasting time. At the core is the ability to just deal with products that have multiple reviews – highly recommended products.
How does IntelliReview work?
Simply put, IntelliReview counts positive reviews as happy customers and negative reviews as unhappy customers. With that information, we rank items based on the number of happy customers, the number of unhappy customers, and how long the product has been available.
Why not just sort by average customer rating?
Sorting by average customer rating is misleading. At the top of the list are new or unpopular products that have 5-stars but very few reviews. However, some of the best products that have hundreds of reviews have 4 or 4.5 stars due to some bad reviews. IntelliReview adds a layer to the search that makes sure you’re seeing the best of the best.
Did you really read all 639 reviews?
Does anyone have that much time? Seriously, we try to read as many reviews that we feel is necessary to get a sense of the overall thoughts about the product. Beyond that, we also use semantic technology to intelligently find certain qualities or issues that people have had. So, for example, you may find a product where 80% of the people liked the image quality, but 8% of them complained about battery life being short. As you can see, we read both the positive and negative reviews, with more consideration given to reviews that have been marked as helpful by others.
Do you get paid by manufacturers?
We do not get paid by manufacturers as this could bias our reviews. We also do not accept free products or samples for the same reason. We let our proprietary algorithm rank the products based on the average rating, number of reviews, and sales popularity. We do receive a commission if you decide to purchase through our links. The price of the item is the same whether it is an affiliate link or not.
Once Upon a Time
As with most great stories, this one starts with someone’s baby daughter. In this story, that someone is me, the founder of IntelliReview.com. The site started with my desire to buy the best for my daughter when she was miraculously brought into my life. Her birth quickly led to the question of the best way to find the “best” items for her.
When I browsed Amazon.com and tried to sort by average rating, I was shown five-star products, but many of them only had one or two reviews. I quickly began to wonder if those few reviews could really be trusted or not. I understood that no product is going to be perfect for everyone, but the system I saw seemed flawed and I wondered if I was really seeing the best products Amazon had to offer.
If these products had more reviews, most would slip below the coveted five-star rating, I thought. I stopped searching and began to let the problem simmer in my mind. Knowing that reviews and reviewers themselves are very subjective, I set out to find a way to browse through the hundreds of reviews for each product and use that information to collect a best of the best list that incorporates our proprietary formula that rates every item.
The Eureka Moment
A while later, while I was searching for baby bathtubs I noticed that some products maintained a 4.0 or 4.5 star rating (out of five) even though they had collected hundreds of reviews. They had somehow stood the test of time and still were shining brightly, even with hundreds of very subjective and different reviewers. I knew I was onto something. If the tubs I saw had high stars after so many reviews, they were most likely superior products that would be worthy of being recommended to others.
I used this logic to return to baby toys. I wanted to find a way to easily and quickly find the items that had hundreds of reviews and still had a high star rating. With the goal in mind, I set out to build IntelliReview.com. With a software process that scours for the products with the most high reviews and lets you sift through the “best of the best” easily, I am now well beyond finding baby toys for my daughter. This is good news for you, however, because you can get the same great results that I do when I search for things to buy online.
Today, I hope to help other parents and people from all walks of life find the best products that have withstood the test of many reviews. This helps weed out items that may have only one or two high reviews that don’t accurately reflect the product. With IntelliReview.com, I’m well on my way to helping people all over the world search smarter.
The Future of Consumer Review Websites
IntelliReview.com is far from being complete. This website is just the beginning. As I continue to offer people a way to find the best possible products available, I will be striving toward making the website even better for you. Not one to rest on my laurels, be assured that I’m hard at work behind the scenes tweaking and optimizing the entire website. I want you to be happy and become a part of the IntelliReview.com story.
It has been an amazing journey so far, but I believe the best is ahead of me, and you, as this website continues to improve, making your shopping experience online easier. In today’s economy, getting the most for your money is important – whether it’s for your baby daughter or yourself. This website is my attempt to help myself (and the world) find the very best products for the money.
