Product reviews are hard to find - any suggestions?
I find this really annoying. I have a product in mind and I want to find reviews of it. For example, let’s say an Olivetti JP90 printer. So I go to Google and search for “Olivetti JP90 review”. This tends to return a lot of results from review sites – which would be fine except for one thing: the way the sites are design ensures they feature in search results even if there’s no reviews.
The review sites create pages for as many products as they can – even when no-one has reviewed the product or made a comment. They title it something like “Reviews and views of the XXXXX” so that you think you’re going to find some information but all you actually see is “No-one has reviewed the product yet. Click here to be the first to write a review.”
Obviously I could specify ’-“write a review”’ in my Google search terms to filter out pages with this phrase – but pages that DO have a review will likely have this phrase too. Any ideas?
