Analysis Details


Fail Suspicious Reviewers

Take-Back Reviewers


1,962 of the 4,076 reviewers have had at least one of their past reviews for another product deleted. The Take-Back Reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.7 while the reviewers who don't have any deleted reviews in their history have rated this product an average of 4.4. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.

Single-Day Reviewers


372 of the 4,076 reviewers have written multiple reviews but posted all of them on a single day. The Single-Day reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.7 while all other reviewers rated this product an average of 4.5. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.

Fail Skewed Helpfulness
We examined the average net helpfulness score of negative reviews against the average net helpfulness score of positive reviews. The net helpfulness score is the number of times a review has been marked as helpful minus the number of times a review has been marked as unhelpful. We found that the negative reviews had an average net helpfulness score of -0.2 while the positive reviews had an average net helpfulness score of 1.4. Based on our statistical modeling, this discrepancy is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, but possibly due to influence of unnatural voting patterns.

Warn Deleted Reviews
