Fighting Fake Reviews
I’m sure you have all seen statistics on just how much people trust online reviews. Nielsen conducted a study, which found that two thirds of people trust product reviews above all other sources. In addition, a whopping 84% trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from friends.
Many people who are looking to buy a new product often look at the Amazon reviews before buying it. Even though they don’t plan on purchasing it from that site, there are many people who left comments for the product. But the company was recently criticized for having an abundant number of either fake reviews or reviews that were influenced by a free or promotional product.
Since we are in the holiday shopping season, Amazon has taken it upon themselves to take action against these reviews. At the beginning of the year, they have even brought legal action against over 1,000 sellers who have been known to get these fake reviews. Amazon is even making it harder for non-verified users to leave reviews and is re-writing the rules that govern incentivized reviews. People who did not make their purchases on the site can leave five of these reviews a month.
In the past Amazon has allowed sellers to discount their products for customers to write good reviews but it would have to be mentioned in the text the fact that they got the product for free or on sale. There was a study conducted by ReviewMeta that found these reviews earn on average about a half star more than non-compensated reviews. Half a star does not seem like much but it could mean the difference between a certain product reaching the top of the list or not. Because of these findings, Amazon has claimed they will remove compensated reviews if they find it too excessive. This has lead to over half a million reviews being pulled down from the site and about three quarters were incentivized.
The idea behind all these new policies and rules is to get the most trustworthy reviews on their site. Taking the option of removing these fake reviews gives sellers a harder time to get their products noticed. But once customers find a seller and see how good it is, it will get genuine appeal. It might just take some time to get noticed.
There was a post on Reddit recently that got a lot of visibility. An author exposed other author for using fake reviews to get more traction on the sales of their book. This in turn hurts other books and those trying to make an honest living. But with the new policy, new products will not be able to become popular and climb through the bestseller list overnight.
Student gets sued over negative yelp reviews
The whole story started when 20-year old, Lan Cai was in a car crash this summer. She was driving back home after her job waitressing at 1:30am and was rammed into by a drunk driver. The physical injuries she incurred are two broken bones in her lower back. Since Cai did not have previous experience on what to do after situations like this, she hired a law office to help out.
As soon as she started dealing with the firm, she was not satisfied with the way they treated her as a customer. Any time Cai would try to contact them, her calls would go unanswered until one day they showed up at her house without her knowledge. This can be very unprofessional especially if the client is not ready to have people over. That was the last straw for Cai so she wrote about her experiences with the firm on Facebook and Yelp.
It was after those negative reviews that Cai received a menacing e-mail from one of the lawyers, Keith Nguyen. The underlying message was giving Cai one of two options. She could either remove the reviews and continue with her original case or not remove the reviews and be taken to court. Since she did not take down the reviews, Nguyen and his coworkers went forward with the lawsuit. The demands were for $100,000 to $200,000 in damages. Keep in mind that Cai is only a student and does not have that kind of money in her bank account. All the money she would make at her job would go towards funding her tuition in nursing.
When Nguyen was contacted regarding this case, he said he did not feel bad at all for Cai. He said he gave her plenty of chances to get the posts taken down from those sites. Apparently she was boasting to everyone that the comments were on there and did not feel bad for the law firm at all. Reviews like these can significantly reduce new business. Once people see comments like the one Cai wrote, it can be devastating for companies. They might even lose so much potential sales; they would have to close shop.
Instead of giving in to the demands of the law firm, Cai fought back with an attorney who accepted her case pro bono. Because what she wrote on Facebook and Yelp was true, neither she or anyone else should have to take it down. In addition, the firm already had multiple bad reviews. And finally Cai’s attorney argued that the lawsuit was a SLAPP, which stands for strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation.
In the end, the judge sided with Cai making the firm pay $26,831.55 in attorney’s fees. This case will go down in time as any company tries to limit the US customers’ right to say what is on their mind.
