Analysis Details


Fail Deleted Reviews

Warn Brand Repeats

Brand Loyalists


Less than approximately 10% of reviewers have reviewed multiple products but half or more of their reviews are for this brand. While this is more Brand Loyalists than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the Brand Loyalists and non-loyalists isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.

Warn Suspicious Reviewers

Take-Back Reviewers


Less than approximately 10% of reviewers have had at least one of their past reviews for another product deleted. While this is more Take-Back Reviewers than we'd expect to see, it does not appear to have a significant impact on the overall rating.
