I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

In their announcement, Amazon said they “prohibit incentivized reviews unless they are facilitated through the Amazon Vine program”. This doesn’t mean they don’t allow incentivized reviews anymore, rather it means they want to control them through their own program because “Vine has important controls in place”.
I do write reviews on a semi-regular basis, and frequently comment on other reviews. One word, or snarky comments I note are not helpful but when I read a good written review, pro or con I will note. Sometimes the reviews will be a deciding factor if I’ll buy a product so I appreciate a well written one.
As Product Elf has grown in popularity so quickly, they have over 40,000 reviewers, discount codes can disappear quickly. New offers are uploaded on a daily basis as sellers are launching new products all the time.
Typically reviewers are invited to conduct a review by a journal or books editor. Editors usually select researchers that are experts in the same subject area as the paper. However, if you think you would be a good reviewer for a specific journal you can always contact one of the journal’s editors.
Ever wanted to be sent books or products for free? Sure, who doesn’t? Getting free products to review happens quite often on Amazon, and most authors/companies/sellers simply ask that you write ‘an honest review’ in exchange for that book/product.
This review program is part of the GPEL brand of mobile accessories. Like Etekcity’s Etekcitizen Program, Arctic Product Tester Program, and Mengo, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. Great quality products too! Available to reviewers in USA.
How it works: To receive free products for testing, you can visit the ‘testing’ area of the site (under rewards), and apply to test products. If you are chosen to test the product then it will be sent out to you.
Tracy, there is no telling when they will get back to you. I’d imagine it all depends on how busy they are and whether or not they have an upcoming test. I would wait a few weeks and then try to contact them. Good luck.
Thanks for the reply. You’re entitled to your assumptions just as any reviewer is entitled to give his honest opinion. I leave five star reviews for products that work exactly as advertised and whose over all quality meets or exceeds the price point. To me a four star review suggests that the product has some specific flaw[s], if only minor. Since the Anker headphones I got for my tenant performed perfectly in my test, very good sound quality and no perceptible physical defects, I left a five star review.
You have to wonder If there is a negativity bias behind this article. Its like they’re implyingnyhay negative reviews are more legitimate than positive. However. When someone has an ax. to grind its not unusual for them to get friends to gangup on a product and lost very extreme negative reviews in an effort to take down someone they dislike. That’s a far worse problemproblem the negative review trolls.
Consequently, while one should loathe the organzations that are, in this way, poisoning one of the few honest consumer-oriented platforms out there, it’s perhaps beside the point to direct vituperation towards VV. This seems to be someone formerly engaged not in esurience but in survival, and who is now performing a public service by disclosing her experiences in an open forum. The more information we have, the better. VV and others like her should be encouraged to describe their experiences, not chided, it seems to me, for past moral lapses made while under economic distress. Or, at least, not when clearly trying to make amends.
Yes, but the point is that *most* people will have skewed opinions because they recieve the product at a discounted price. You might be honest and try to take prices into account, but you are a minority. The author (or people who “paint a negative brush”) is not saying that you might be dishonest, but a lot more people are and it effects the results no matter how you like it or not. That includes complaining here.
Hi there. I love your website, thanks! Anyway just wanted to let you know that some of your links aren’t working properly. For instance when I click on #3 – Pinecone Research, I’m directed to a site called, ‘Product Report Card.com’. That’s not the first time that’s happened to me while using the links you provide on your site. I hope this information is helpful to you!
You have a few ways to suss out what may be a fake review. The easiest way is to use Fakespot. This site allows you to paste the link to any Amazon product and receive a score regarding the likelihood of fake reviews.
You won’t find a selection of products by going to their site, but rather a landing page that’s only used for registering a new account. They are a bit more strict in their process for giving out discounts.
This review program is part of the GMYLE brand, “developing MacBook, Tablet, Smartphone Accessories.” Like similar programs, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. When applying: Reviewers in “United States will receive first round pick. United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, France, Italy and Spain will become available after.”
How do I know they are fake you ask… Easy, look at the other products that the person has reviewed, there usually are not any, but when they are they are all from the same seller. Another way is that someone will have like 50 reviews in a 2 day period, but then no other positive reviews, ever. Another way, You will see a reviewer review different products with different descriptions about who they are (e.g., “I am a professional plumber so…”, “As a professional photographer, I think…”, “As a large man, I found…”, “As a single mother…” all from the same person). Another indicator is when they use the same broken English in multiple 5 star reviews or misspell the exact same word the same way under different names (no verified purchase, of course). Of course, none of these are 100% guarantees they are fake, but once you start looking for them, it becomes obvious.
And it doesn’t even need to be as complicated as that. A video went viral earlier this year purporting to show a click farm in China, with thousands of phones dedicated to inflating the scores of mobile apps. Ooi says similar operations exist, based mainly China and Eastern Europe, to do the same for Amazon reviews.
The Reviewer Feedback Programme monitors Elsevier’s performance from the perspective of reviewers on Elsevier journals. We’ll ask you about various aspects of EES and other aspects of reviewing via an online survey. Areas of interaction and support are measured and reported regularly. Elsevier’s performance is benchmarked against that of other publishers.
And, as best I can tell, you didn’t miss anything – there’s no average rating or most helpful reviews pulled when you filter it down. You just have to slog through them until you get the information you need….
How much you get paid varies. I’ve been paid anywhere from $3-$150. There was a time I tested a website in beta format for HBO (now called HBO-GO) and they paid me $100 for doing it! Very easy money!
In a blog post, Amazon said it’s improving its review ratings by introducing an algorithm that gives weight to reviews that are more helpful. It said it’s also suspending, banning or suing “thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.”
Reviewers find reviewing an important and rewarding activity, but the work is almost invisible to the outside world, and hardly ever rewarded. The Reviewer Recognition Platform is designed to change that.
However, I like writing honest reviews and reviews that actually help people, even if they don’t receive votes for it. I’ve seen some Vine reviewers who were honest, but the majority are not, imo. I’ve seen positive Vine reviews for products where all the non-Vine reviews were poor. So while I’d love to be a Vine member, I don’t think I’m dishonest enough for it.
I signed up for Toluna yesterday and qualified for a free product on my second survey. I just picked one of the shorter survey suggestions they emailed to me and it paid off. Thank you for recommending these sites! I heard about Pinecone Research and was thankful to receive the link on your blog. When I went to sign up it took me to productreportcard.com. Is this the right website? I was accepted in, but I don’t see the name Pinecone Research anywhere on the site. Also, do you know if ProductTestingUSA.com is a legitimate website?
Thank you for all the time and energy you spend on this. You really are thorough and honorable. I apologize if I missed this answer in your blog. I’ve read it several times, but sometimes things don’t click like I wish they would. Here is email.
