Can You Trust Reviews

can you trust review sites

Many times we do some or a lot of research before buying something online. There are however pitfalls we have to be aware of.

Why Buy Online

I personally like to look around before making a decision on a purchase I am planning on making. I know that a lot of things are cheaper in online stores.

I also like the fact that I don’t have to go out to a store and wait and try to park my car and wait inline with sometimes a heavy product to pay. Picking it up myself and carrying it home.

Online eliminates all these hassles and I get it delivered at my front door and with a friendly delivery driver they sometimes even take it inside for you.

Using Review Websites

I love to use review websites and to be honest, I think this website can be considered one, since I write about products for seniors here.

The reason I like review websites is that they do all the hard work for me. I don’t have to dig through all the pros and cons, all the features and most of them even have a product summary.

Thing To Keep In Mind

This would all be great if we lived in a perfect world. This is however not the case and there are also bad review site. Here are some things to look for.

  • To many positive rating
  • To many “buy here” buttons
  • Not enough text
  • No negative ratings
  • Written as a sales letter
  • No contact information

You understand that these are just a few of the things to consider, but I hope you got the picture. Basically I mean to say that if a product sounds to good to be true, in most cases it probably is.

What I found during writing my product reviews for senior citizen is that no product has only good ratings. There are always people who do not like something about it.

I also like to see a face behind the things I read. If there is no name or maybe even a page that tells me who the owner of a website is I get suspicious.


It is sometimes not easy to see if it is a trustworthy website you are visiting. With the tips here you are able to separate the good ones from the bad ones.

After finding a good review website try to come back. In case of a legitimate site you can contact the owner and ask him or her about products or online stores to use. They have a reputation to keep up with.

Hope these tips will help you find the review website that can help you safe time in finding the products you need.
