Spot fake reviews with this tool every Amazon shopper needs

If you’re like most of us, you’re relying on Amazon more than ever these days. In states still under lockdown, it’s one of the best ways to shop and get your goods fast, but how is anyone supposed to know what to buy with all the fake reviews out there?

Believe it or not, you don’t need to mindlessly trawl through reviews until you find a real one with good information and photos. Instead, you can use ReviewMeta to filter out all the extra noise.

ReviewMeta uses a learning algorithm to scan Amazon reviews for fakes, and the more it’s used, the better it gets. All you need to do is paste the product link into the search bar, click “Run Report,” and let it hunt for robots. It’s like Blade Runner for your browser!

Once your report is ready, you can compare your results against how the rankings look on Amazon. You’ll get the review score, as well as an adjusted score from ReviewMeta with the bot ratings removed.

In addition, you’ll also see what percentage of fake reviews were removed from your list. This will show you how trustworthy the product page was in the first place, which can help you sniff out risky purchases before you take the plunge.

If you’re tired of being tricked by misleading feedback or dishonest reviews, you can visit ReviewMeta in your browser, or download the extension so it’s with you the next time you shop.

There are even app versions for Android and iOS, which can save you the trouble of having to copy and paste links over and over again.

Try this site. It’s great stuff!
